While Frieze London sells work made mostly after 2000, this sister fair, now in its seventh year, features over 130 international galleries from around the globe, selling seriously high-end art from the ancient era to the end of the twentieth century. Basically, this is the place to be for major names in art, from Rembrandt to Picasso – this huge, glorified tent in the north end of Regent’s Park is going to have it all.

As you’d expect, the talks at Frieze Masters take on a more historical edge, looking at how older art impacts on contemporary practice. Tim Marlowe from the RA returns to curate the talks, which for 2018 focus on women international artists talking to museum directors and curators. 

Just try not to knock anything over when you’re here.

I wouldn’t consider myself very knowledgeable when it comes to art, however, I thoroughly enjoyed the Frieze Masters art fair. Whilst some ‘works’ left everything to be desired (and this is no bad thing as art is so subjective), others were absolutely breath taking! They really opened up the imagination, made good use of analytical skills and general appreciation of aesthetic beauty. There is lots to see in a very cushy pop-up gallery in a fantastic location so lots to do before and after too. Limited time only though so hurry!
