What was sold at Frieze London and Frieze Masters 2021
The dealers underlined the undeniable energy of the fair, carried by a high caliber of international collectors and the possibility of meeting with colleagues from all over the world. Independent curator and artistic advisor Claudia Cheng commented on the âprevailing spirit of diversity and inclusiveness,â noting that women artists of color in particular drive sales in established and emerging galleries. She also highlighted Frieze’s impact on London more broadly, noting that the outdoor sculptures in Regent’s Park have helped expand accessibility and bring the city together. “Frieze looks like an international fair,” she added, “but also a London affair.”
The Frieze tents, meanwhile, were buzzing all week, from the stands of emerging galleries in the âFocusâ area of ââFrieze London, to âUnworldingâ, a section curated by CÃ©dric Fauq featuring works meditating on the destruction of the world. .
