Part the first of my favourite artworks at Frieze 2011. I know, it seems like aeons ago but I wanted to post about it for a while. One way to describe Frieze would be systematic bombardment of the senses through the medium of Art in a white tent several kilometres long, with hordes of enviably dressed personages parading themselves (if they are important or famous) or meekly glancing over heads (if they are mere mortals). The colossal space is a dazzling patchwork of galleries from all over the world, showcasing artists from Magritte to Emin, from the Chapman brothers to Ryan McGinley. It is nigh on impossible to see everything, and to describe the variety of work on display, so I will let the photos do the talking. Part the second to follow, if I ever get to breathe again between preparing my own artwork for assessments, university interviews, reading and suspending myself in a state of nervous agitation to do with the aforementioned.
