Frieze Art Fair under a big white tent in Regent's Park is London's art circus, where art meets commerce and crowds throng to see the spectacle of it all.
In the midst of the mayhem come occasional flashes of brilliance, art that makes you look again, think, smile or all of the above, along with impromptu opportunities to talk to artists, curators and gallerists.
After a whirlwind tour of the fair on opening day, I recorded some of them in this film of Frieze fair highlights, which includes work by Royal Academicians, such as Grayson Perry, Gillian Wearing and Tracey Emin, as well as the Gagosian stand curated by Franz West, photo pieces by Stan Douglas and Philip Lorca diCorcia, over the top light pieces by Olafur Eliasson and Do Ho Suh and the sculpture park, which is fantastic and free.
But my favourite works here were not (officially) for sale. Instead, they were part of Frieze Projects - artist commissions for the fair. I've interviewed Frieze Projects curator Sarah McCrory on one of the new commissions for the fair - a mesmerising aquarium by French artist Pierre Huyghe, an unmissable work, which gives a whole new meaning to the live crab. I've also talked to the two former RA Schools students behind another Frieze Project, Peles Empire's 'Noroc', an artwork that conveniently doubles as a bar. Cheers!
