With the temperature cooling in the British capital, Frieze Art Fair has returned to Regent’s Park in London for its annual run, bringing with it a range international galleries, projects and talks that underscore its continued vitality in the world of contemporary art. The mood was high as collectors, gallerists and artists strode the fair’s aisle and booths in the early hours of the fair press preview, exploring the gallery booths and chatting below the bright lights of the fair tent, which lent a gleam to the impressive works on offer across the expanse of the fair.

As always, the fair’s offerings managed to blend an impressive and expansive roster of blue-chip works, emerging artists, and exploratory programming that gave its run the continued sense of vitality and energy that has long been a hallmark of the fair brand. Browsing the well-appointed aisles of the tent, spread out across the lawns of the park, one could view works from around the globe before stepping out for a brisk refresher and a walk by the waters. At Clearing, a surreal arrangement by Marguerite Humeau was on view, mixing together natural forms and surreal material juxtapositions, while over at Hauser & Wirth, one could view a solo booth dedicated to the work of artist Barbara Chase Riboud. Victoria Miro was also a draw all weekend, featuring a string of works by gallery artists including pieces by Philip Guston, Chantal Jaffe, and more.

Elsewhere, Goodman Gallery was presenting works by Yinka Shonibare, while over at the Thomas Dane Gallery booth, one could view works by Ella Kruglyanskaya. Another standout booth came by way of hometown favorite Josh Lilley presenting works by artists Nick Goss, Ryan Mosley, and more. Meanwhile at Ben Brown Fine Arts, one could browse a range of works by artist Gavin Turk, spanning a range of the artist’s varied material and sculptural interests.

This sense of exploration, a hallmark of the fair, and one of its main appeals, seems to have remained strong over the years, and one can only hope will continue to remain a central tenant of Frieze’s appeal. Once again, Frieze emphasizes and drive home just how vital the British arts scene, and art market, continues to be for the broader international market.

The fair closes October 15th.
