Once considered a top satellite fair for emerging to mid-career artists, PULSE lost some of that reputation in recent years, as many of its exhibitors jumped ship to other competing fairs.

Frieze Art Fair returns to London from 17 to 20 October 2013 showcasing 152 galleries from around the world. Highlights this year include the Gagosian Gallery, displaying five large scale works by pop artist Jeff Koons, from his stainless steel inflatable sculptures series to his Sacred Heart sculpture.

After bringing you an initial walk through of the Frieze Art Fair in New York several days ago, here is another selection of photos for you to peruse. Bringing an expertise that hails from across the Atlantic, the event which first made it’s name in the UK featured a diverse selection of contemporary art as well as associated satellite fairs (more on that later).

There’s a new contender for the biggest baddest art fair in New York City and it hails from overseas. The UK-based Frieze recently landed in the Big Apple and has incited excitement amongst the art community as it has brung many of the top tier galleries that didn’t participate at Armory Fair earlier this Spring (not to mention attracting great concurrent satellite fairs such as Nada & Pulse). Located on the scenic Randall’s Island, Frieze brings a new way of experiencing traditional art fairs which […]
