Each October the international art world descends on London as Frieze London, one of the world’s most respected contemporary art fairs, enables people to see and buy the work of more than 1000 of the world’s most important contemporary artists. At the same time, every gallery and museum in London puts on their most exciting shows, for the international audience.
In 2014 Auckland-based former Londoner, Stephanie Post, designed a five-day programme especially for New Zealand collectors to visit Frieze London, and at the same time, experience the full breadth of the London art world, through a bespoke programme of visits to artists’ studios, private collections galleries and museums. For 2015, she is offering a similar programme, and we are pleased to invite you to come and find out more about last year’s visits and what she is organising for this year. Highlights of 2014 included private collections in Mayfair and Kensington, a private guided tour of the Anselm Kiefer exhibition at the Royal Academy, a tour of the viewing rooms as well as the exhibition spaces at White Cube and several studio visits.
Over a glass of wine, you will hear, not only about attending Frieze Preview day as a VIP, but also Frieze Masters, which offers a carefully selected presentation of approximately 120 leading galleries exhibiting iconic works of art ranging from the ancient era and old masters through to art of the 20th century. In between Frieze and Frieze Masters, in the beautiful setting of The English Garden in Regents Park, The Frieze Sculpture Park shows a selection of contemporary and historical sculptures, selected from Frieze and Frieze Masters. At the same time, every arts organisation in London, from the smallest artist-run space in the East End, to Tate Modern and the Royal Academy, put on an exciting array of shows and exhibitions for the international visitors to London. As someone who worked in the London art world for more than 10 years, Stephanie will make sure that you get to places you would never find on your own and gain an insight into what it is that makes London a centre of the contemporary art world.
Details for the evening are Tuesday May 19, 7.30-9pm, 18 Taurarua Tce, Parnell.
