Frieze Fairs help stake London’s claim as the world’s art capital

21 October 2013Written by ATG Reporter

Frieze Week, London’s annual contemporary art circus, means big business.

Born 11 years ago with the arrival of the Frieze London fair, the altar at which the whole shebang worships, the event has now been joined by its younger sibling Frieze Masters as well as the Pavilion of Art & Design London.

While works of art at these events can change hands for telephone numbers, there's a multitude of smaller satellite fairs, from the Christie's South Kensington print fair Multiplied to The Other Art Fair  and Moniker in East London, where artists can sell direct to the public, to the new 1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair at Somerset House... the list goes on.

Here are a few snapshots of events that took place last week.
