Frieze London 2019 brings the visual arts world to the UK

Frieze London this year marks the 17th edition of the annual art fair and will truly bring the world of visual arts together in one place on 3-6 October. It welcomes more than 160 galleries from 35 countries, a record in international participation since its inception in 2003. This includes new gallery additions from Seoul, Singapore and São Paulo, while artists from New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Berlin and Tokyo will all display their forward-thinking works. Frieze London shows how the art world embraces the spirit of international collaboration while honouring the world-leading work of the UK.

You can view this year's full programme here. Highlights include:

  • Woven, a set of eight solo works by artists using textiles and weaving, curated by Cosmin Costinas.
  • Frieze Masters, this year showcasing women who have changed the course of art history.
  • Frieze Masters talks will include an 'in conversation' with Hans Ulrich-Obrist.

With Frieze Sculpture and Frieze Masters taking place in Regent's Park at the same time, this coming weekend of exhibitions, talks and curated programmes opens two months of visual arts highlights throughout the country and overseas. Check the Culture Diary events pages for more in the world of static and moving image, sculpture and immersive art.

We also want more of your visual art tours, events and exhibitions, especially if you travel internationally. We can help promote your work to government and international audiences. Upload it to the website, and let us know your plans at
