Frieze art fair highlights 2016

London has been dominated by the biggest contemporary carnival, Frieze London, for over fifteen years – the place to see and be seen taking in all that the international art world has to offer. Six years ago it was joined by its sister fair Frieze Masters, which bridges the gap between ancient and mid-century, making the double Frieze Fair phenomenon a force to be reckoned with every October.

The mighty Frieze London and Frieze Masters art fairs have reigned over the London art calendar for years. On one side is Frieze London with 160 galleries from over 25 different countries featuring contemporary art. Then across the other side is Frieze Masters: a sister fair which joined the party a couple of years ago to bridge that gap between ancient and mid-century art.
