We saw a lot at Frieze and we have to note that every fair we’ve been to Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin never fails to make in impact with their bold exhibits. Amongst the bustle we caught impressive works by Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, Aya Takano, Tracy Emin, David La Chapelle and even a surprise appearance by Faile.

Like Basel week for Switzerland and Armory week for New York, London has a signature week for art and it’s centralized around the Frieze Art Fair. This year, AM made the trip out to catch the well produced affair which was overwhelming in the amount of art displayed. Like most major art fairs, we needed to go back after day one to soak in more visual goodness. On our first pass, we stumbled on some notable works from George Condo, fresh photos from Ryan McGinley and a new direction from […]
One of the highlights of our Frieze visit was stumbling upon the Stephen Friedman Gallery booth. As an unexpected surprise to us, the entire booth had been dedicated to an installation of David Shrigley’s work. Better still, David walked into the compound whilst we were there and started applying his temporary tattoos to a select few fans who had pre-registered – if only we were more on the ball then AM would be rocking some Shrigley ink of our own. Check out some of our […]
To continue our focus on some of the most enjoyable elements of the Frieze Art Fair, we were drawn in to a room within David Zwirner’s booth dedicated to an installation of works by Marcel Dzama. A full sized hooded mannequin, complete with rifle, pirouetted in the centre of the room and drew voyeurs into a world of wonder from Dzama. Alongside the kinetic sculpture were a series of intricately detailed dioramas. One can only imagine the amount of time that went into each of […]
We cherish every opportunity to see Mark Ryden’s work, and when we heard that his new painting entitled “Awakening The Moon” was to be shown at Paul Kasmin’s booth at the Frieze Art Fair, we had to put this on our tick-list. Kasmin brought us a treat at Basel in Miami last year with the wonderful “Incarnation” and this new piece didn’t disappoint either. Check the wonderful details in some of our close up flicks after the jump.
One of the other booths we will be checking out this year at the Frieze Art Fair besides Team Gallery’s (Ryan McGinley) will be Paul Kasmin’s. Can you blame us? Look at this beautiful new piece “Awakening the Moon” from Mark Ryden, who exhibited at the New York Gallery in May. Could another show be in the works? Discuss Mark Ryden here.
The Frieze Art Fair is soon upon us. Occupying Team Gallery’s booth at Frieze will be a group show consisting of a few of their represented artists. Among them is Ryan McGinley, who will be showing photos from his most recent road trip, as well as more b&w studio portraits of models with exotic animals. AM readers might also be interested in Banks Violette, who will be showing his first large-scale, text-based installation. The piece seems to announce a impending apocalypse, so prepare yourselves.
