Female Domination at Frieze Art Fair
Frieze Art Fair is one of the most highly-anticipated events of the year for art lovers nationwide. This year, the fair is predicted to see an astonishing 60,000 visitors who are collectively estimated to spend millions of pounds on artwork from over 1,000 different artists who will be showcasing their masterpieces.
However, for this year’s Frieze Art Fair there will be a twist – as a response to the ‘hard fact’ that male artists dominate the industry, the Artistic Director of Frieze has chosen 11 significant female individuals from the art scene to put forward 10 female artists who they feel are unappreciated and under-recognised to exhibit some of their work during this year’s exhibition.
Running this autumn from 4-7th October in Regent’s Park, the theme surrounding this year’s Frieze has been motivated by aptness of this year marking 100 years since women were granted the vote in the United Kingdom.
