Celebrating 20 Years of Frieze London with 20 Frieze London and Frieze Masters Picks
October 19, 2023 - Paul Laster of Whitehot Magazine
Celebrating Frieze London’s 20th anniversary, we searched the aisles of the 2023 editions of Frieze London and Frieze Masters to choose our favorites works at the two Regent Park art fairs. Solo standouts included Sophie von Hellermann’s transformation of Pilas Corrias’ booth into a carnivalesque fantasy based on Dreamland, Margate’s iconic funfair, at Frieze London and Arlene Shechet’s presentation of brilliantly colored and richly textured sculptures and cast paper vessels at Pace for “Part of Studio,” a dedicated section of the Frieze Masters curated by Sheena Wagstaff. Meanwhile, in group exhibitions, Remedios Varo’s 1959 surreal painting Apártalos que voy de paso was a show-stopper at Gallery Wendi Norris at Frieze Masters; Reza Aramesh’s hand-carved and polished Carrara marble head caught our eye at Dastan’s Frieze London booth; and Josh Smith’s giant bronze of the grim reaper in Frieze Sculpture and tabletop edition of it at David Zwirner in Frieze London got us anticipating Halloween weeks ahead of time.
Scroll through the images below to see these works of art and our other Frieze London and Frieze Masters picks.
