Ahead of Frieze London and Frieze Masters, which in 2017 both take place from October 5-8, Frieze has launched the first-ever summer edition of its Frieze Sculpture Park in London, having started previous editions in October to coincide with the opening of the two fairs.
This year’s edition of the free outdoor display Park brings together 25 works by leading 20th-century and contemporary artists from around the world, including: Magdalena Abakanowicz, Rasheed Araeen, Urs Fischer, KAWS, Alicja Kwade, Michael Craig-Martin, Ugo Rondinone, and Sarah Sze.
Selected by Clare Lilley (Director of Programme, Yorkshire Sculpture Park), following an open call for applications submitted by international galleries, the sculptures will be on display in The English Gardens of The Regent’s Park from July 5 to October 8.
Commenting on Frieze Sculpture 2017, Clare Lilley said: “We are thrilled to expand the scope and audience for Frieze Sculpture this year so that even more people can enjoy some of the best outdoor sculpture from around the world in one of London’s exceptional parkland landscapes.
“From the playful to the political, these 25 works explore contemporary sculpture’s material and technical dexterity, together with its social role and reflection on the human condition and our environment.”
Some of the highlights of this year’s Frieze Sculpture include a six-metre-high toy-human figure by KAWS (Galerie Perrotin), a white-enameled bronze tree by Ugo Rondinone (Sadie Coles HQ), a rocks and mirror work by Alicja Kwade (Kammel Mennour), and Tony Cragg’s “Stroke” 2014 (Holtermann Fine Art).
