Frieze London, and the many satellite events taking place as
the international art world make a yearly visit to London.
the fair, how does it impact not only the art market but the
art scene in London and what other events have grown up,
not only to benefit from the international footfall and
attention, but to supplement some of the shortcomings of the
art market in general?’
With live performances, cut ups from my own Frieze and
Zoo Art Fair audio 2007-present, interviews and debate, the

Issues of unequal opportunities, mis- and non-representation in the arts

Founding Director of the leading international art fair dedicated to Africa, 1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair, Somerset House London, New York and now Morocco.
- Niamh Coghlan
Associate Director – Richard Saltoun Gallery presenting two solo booths across the fairs. At Frieze’s new ‘Sex Works’ section they’ll exhibit new and historical works by the radical feminist artist Renate Bertlmann, whereas at Frieze Masters’ ‘Spotlight’ section they’ll present 100 Boots (1972), the seminal conceptual work of the American artist Eleanor Antin, whose recent photographic series are on show – and still will be during Frieze week – at their gallery space in Fitzrovia. As female artists who began working in the 60s, one in Austria and one in America, they have both faced an uphill battle to have their work exhibited, collected, and included in mainstream discussions and critical analysis at the time.

Co-Director at Flowers Gallery, currently showing at their two London gallery space Aleah Chapin’s monumental nudes of older women and Wabbling Back to the Fire an exhibition by Nicola Hicks MBE, brings together sculptures from 1999

often darker aspects of humanity, encompassing grief, love,
understanding, war and money.
