Taking place annually in a temporary structure in Regent's Park Frieze Art Fair, the major event in London's contemporary art calendar, celebrates its tenth year with a showcase of work by over 1,000 artists from 175 international galleries. Alongside the establshed galleries showing in the main section of Frieze there is the Frame section with solo artist presentations from galleries less than six years old and a new section called Focus, which will feature galleries established after 2001 and showing work by up to three artists.

Other regular features include daily talks, lectures and debates - with speakers including John Waters and Marina Warner, a programme of commissioned artists's films and a free outdoor sculpture park.

Also to look out for are five site-specific artist's commissions under the Frieze Projects programme, which this year include a walk-through field of smoking incense and the recreation of a live crime drama.

Visitors are strongly encouraged to perform a 'personal artwork' - poem, song or dance - as part of their visit. All the art on show is raffled off when the exhibition ends so it's always worth buying a few raffle tickets. At £4.50 (£3.00 unwaged or uneducated) it worth buying several.
