Frieze London 2014

Frieze Art FairFor those of you who didn’t manage to make it to the big Frieze Art Fair that took over Regent’s Park between October 15-18, here comes a glimpse into Frieze London. Now it wasn’t only the heavy weights of the art world that descended but the baby pram club did as well (urgh). Despite Frieze occupying a vast amount of space, there simply wasn’t enough of it to accommodate the SUV of prams (the twin pram in double width).

  1. Great selection.

    What strikes me is that art used to be something people bought to display in their public rooms, to show off that they had taste and could afford to buy paintings and sculpture. Now when I look at these I think some might be bought not for display in public rooms, but rather to be enjoyed in private. Does this signal a widening of subject matter, more people from a wider spectrum of society (i.e. not just the very rich) buying art, or a greater understanding of what art is?
