Frieze Masters 2016: New Discoveries across Art History

In conjunction with Frieze London 2016, the fifth edition of Frieze Masters takes place from 6 October until 9 October 2016. Similar to the former, Frieze Masters brings together over 130 leading historical and modern galleries from across the globe. Held in Regent’s Park, it is installed in a vivid and sunny structure built by Annabelle Selldorf.

The fair showcases expertly vetted art and antiquities from the ancient era up to the late 20th century. Through the apposition of periods and genres placed side-by-side, Frieze Masters acts as a catalyst for new discoveries across art history. In addition, collaborations with leading international curators such as Toby Kamps, Clare Lilley, Tim Marlow and Sir Norman Rosenthal ensures that the fair continues to provide a diverse and high-quality experience for all involved.

Victoria Siddall, Director of Frieze Fairs, has said of Frieze Masters: “The quality and breadth of work in Frieze Masters keeps it fresh and exciting each year. I am looking forward to seeing even more antiquities dealers in the fair, as well as Indian art, alongside the best Old Masters and 20th-century work … Once again we will see galleries from different fields collaborate on ground-breaking presentations, as the fair continues to offer new models for looking at and collecting art.”

Aesthetica will also be a part of Frieze Masters. The magazine will be on sale throughout the three days and is one of only 30 magazines that have been selected for the event. It will be available in stands across the fair.

This fair provides an exciting opportunity to explore the world of historical and modern art. With the inclusion of the celebrated Frieze Masters Talks programme, as well as the fair’s very first Reading Room, the event continues to deliver an unrivalled experience not to be missed.

Frieze Masters runs from 6-9 October in Regent’s Park, London. Find out more:
