I love Frieze. I hope to attend the Frieze Art Fair one day. It’s exceptional because scholarship and artists’ projects are just as prominent as sales. The magazine is beautifully designed, well written, global yet succinct.
Here are even more reasons to be excited about contemporary art, courtesy of Frieze:
1. This cover.
2. Frieze Fair Podcasts
My two favorite art podcasts are recordings of art lectures from the Tate and from Frieze Art Fair. (Right now I’m working my way through Tate’s series of talks held in conjunction with their recent exhibition, Pop Life.)
3. Frieze Projects
Frieze produces commissioned projects at every fair, including a highly competitive, juried Cartier Award that is open to artists to apply. The 2010 awardees were just announced, and their projects sound fantastic.
Jeffrey Vallance is especially entertaining and delightfully disruptive.
