Frieze + Superdesign – London
13/10/2010 - 16/10/2010$25
A double art dose this end of the week + weekend in London starting today: the renown Frieze art fair @ Regent’s Park and an alternative (also free) option: Superdesign show @ the Victoria House basement. Both start today, and both just as recommendable….
Contemporary design? We all have at least one piece in our homes, kitsch or not… and to give you new ideas on what’s to come (or what you’ll never afford to buy) the SD exhibition of contemporary design art is back in its fourth year!
Set within the the Victoria House, the exhibition will bring together collections from some pretty well-known international galleries and pioneering designers at a crucial time in the art calendar year. Spread over 1,500 sqm of exhibition space, Super Design will feature specially commissioned, unique and limited edition pieces from galleries including The Apartment, D&A-Lab, Quadrige, Mitterrand-Cramer, Tom Dixon, Herve Van Der Straeten and Vessel Gallery among others.
Devised by gallery owner Patrick Brillet, Super Design has become in these few years a very representative showcase of the UK design panorama with the ingenious capabilities of producers and designers and the inspiring collaborations that exist between the two.
At this year’s Super Design, The Apartment will be premiering two new chandeliers from the lighting series ‘Digit’, developed by Milan based designer Emmanuel Babled. Working with Murano glass and creating extremely dense and chaotic configurations of orbs, Babled breaks free from the conventions of the classic Venetian chandelier with his latest works ‘Digit Superball’ and ‘Digit Linear’.
Frieze art Fair
Our second arty must-visit this weekend in London is the (even more) ambitious and bombastic design event of the year. The Frieze Art Fair features over 170 galleries from around the world, and with time has become a real unique opportunity to see and buy work by leading artists (living ones!); you will need some money, not to buy the art itself, but to enter the fair: £25.
The fair also includes specially commissioned artists’ projects, a prestigious talks programme and an artist-led education schedule. Within the fair there’s a section named “Frame”, introduced in 2009, Frame is dedicated to solo artist presentations and open to galleries who have been in existence for less than six years and present a regular programme of exhibitions (more info about Frieze on ther website).
Sorry for such a short notice, but if you can make it we highly recommend both! (as everything we post here …. of corz).
