2013: Paris or London? Philippa Snow and James Loks with a Tale of Two Cities

by ArtSlant Team
James Loks <************************@gmail.com>   to Philippa 23/12/2013         I've just been trying to think about what I'm going to say, in between writing shopping lists and looking at fish stew recipes. Yes we are eating fish stew for christmas which is largely because my wife is Polish, carp is not very tasty and we don't have a bath in which to keep it. This takes a longer explanation but you can google it. And... [more]

Frieze London Alternatives: Moniker & The Other Art Fair 2013

by Char Jansen
When you walk past the kilometer of curry joints on Brick Lane, or contemplate the compulsive repetitiveness of London’s high street stores, it’s perpetually perplexing: how do all those retailers selling the exact same products at the exact same rates survive side by side? It’s the corollary of the consumer market, of course: supply and demand. By the same token, Frieze London has propagated a flux of consumer art fairs, therefore we must only assume there is a market as such. Satellite fairs... [more]

by Marianne Templeton
Frieze Art Fair is one of those places—like supermarkets, or the Internet—where it's possible to feel that time is passing both too slowly and too quickly.

Get The Look: Philippa Snow on the art of dressing for Frieze

by Philippa Snow
Tapestry or embroidery, preferably British-made; the haunting expression of a mining-town nightclub singer doing The Green Green Grass of Home; hunting tweeds and a monocle, and the Billy-Bob™ teeth listed on their website as Megabucks AKA Tombstones; a "Class War" t-shirt; more Burberry than a soap-opera actress with a missing septum. Definitely not a big, babyish candy-pink dress if you are a man – that is Grayson's thing, and he does it best.   The Matthew Smith Glitter, platforms... [more]

Tranquillity in the Midst of the Circus: The Frieze Sculpture Park

by Daniel Barnes
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. It is also a cultural welter where big time collectors, small time crooks, celebrities and artworld groupies gather for the inevitable theatrics. At... [more]
