Best Sites for Frieze

We picked the top resources to enjoy Frieze Art Fair at its best.

It’s one of our favourite times of year here at The GWG, because yes, it’s Frieze (aka London Art Week, when the entire city turns contemporary art centric). What better way to while away an autumnal afternoon than by wandering around the eclectic stands of one of the world’s most prestigious art fairs?

FRIEZE BLOG


As you would expect, the blog features posts from over 20 categories and dozens of authors waxing lyrical on pretty much everything concerning the art world. The graphics are clean and best of all it’s easy to research a specific post within the comprehensive archive. Whether you wish to know more about the latest Venice Biennale, or maybe you’re curious about new pop-culture interactions between cinema, tv and music, this is the blog to bookmark. Should we find a downside, we’d say we’d love it to be updated even more often.

ART REVIEW


The leading publication and an authority on the art world, this (aside from the actual Frieze site itself, click here), should be your first port of call for all things art related. There’s an excellent piece out yesterday with tips for the best galleries to peruse.

ROYAL ACADEMY FRIEZE SPECIAL


The Royal Academy have also set about compiling their list of top twenty events to visit (or try to gate crash), and they’re the experts of course. Well worth a look.

URBANOLOGIE


This private members club and community that plugs you into the best the city has to offer, has put its all into creating a must visit list of hospitality venues within the hallowed marquee walls of Regents Park. You’ll have to sign up, but the registration’s swift and certainly worth it.

CULTUREHEAD


This curated treasure trove of contemporary art trivia, is well worth a look over the days to come. To remise on last years exhibit, check out their Best of Frieze Images from 2013, which certainly set the bar pretty darn high.

CREATIVE REVIEW


The delightfully elegant review, that covers just about everything creative is also amongst the destination domains for Frieze. Along with coverage you can win two tickets for the fair… Just get cracking before they go.

FRIEZE NEW YORK


It already went ahead in May, in the seriously aspirational surroundings of Randall’s Island Manhattan, and it’s the site to head to if you want to check out the wider scope of international art.

FRIEZE MASTERS


Dedicated to art made before the year 2000, this fair marries the ancient with the modern, offering a ‘historical lens’ that will only expand your enjoyment of this year’s fair.

FRIEZE 2014 CHEAT SHEET – VOGUE


This article is well worth a look. Everything you need to approach the fair from a seriously stylish angle.

FRIEZE – VIMEO


It may sound obvious but the Frieze Vimeo page is well worth a look for the latest video art as proffered by Frieze favourites.

PRINTABLE MAP


And last but not least, here’s the link to the printable maps of the fair, just to make it all a tad easier.
