Last weekend, COZY had the chance to visit the sold out Frieze Art Fair in Regents Park, London. The event, established four years ago- focuses solely on contemporary art and living artists. It attracts 60,000 people every year, and this weekend it saw celebrity guests such as Jay Z, Beyonce, and A$AP Rocky to name a few.
Unlike other art fairs, Frieze is housed in a bespoke structure built just for the event. The beautiful white structure housed thousands of contemporary works, as well as a VIP room (yes, we got to go)- and many restaurants and bars.
Outside, in Regents Park, was the Sculpture Garden, where the general public and those without tickets were invited to view contemporary sculptures buried amongst the greenery. One piece that seemed to catch everyone's eye was the giant Afrormosia wood companion sculpture entitled "Small Lie" by New York artist, KAWS.
Back inside the fair, we were treated to a wide variety of contemporary art in mixed medias. Here are some of our favourites. (Artists credited where possible.)
Then, we went for Sushi. (mmmmm.)
Then we headed back to check out the rest of the fair:
We could go on with endless photos from the fair- it was a brilliant display of contemporary art and we'll definitely be heading back next year.
