The circus is coming to town. The tent is going up in Regent’s Park and the hordes of gallerists, collectors and devotees are moving in. It is time for the delicious and baffling spectacle that is Frieze London. Frieze is a mysterious beast. It is a super-capitalist cattle market for the artworld to show off and trade its most prized specimens.
