BBC News spotlights Frieze Week on Cork Street
Usually attracting around 60,000 visitors from around the world, this year’s Frieze was a week like no other, a programme across a myriad of experiences, virtual and real.
While Frieze Sculpture remained in the open air of Regents Park, the fair moved online and became absorbed into physical galleries across London – of which Cork Street was a hub.
Studio Voltaire, Sadie Coles HQ, Lisson Gallery, Frieze Live and Stephen Friedman Gallery joined the permanent roster of galleries to become the epicentre of cultural activity during London’s busiest art market month, taking over gallery spaces on Cork Street and Old Burlington Street.
With contributions from Eva Langret, Artistic Director of Frieze London; Jo Stella-Sawicka, Senior Director, Goodman Gallery and Louise Hayward, Senior Director, Lisson Gallery, the BBC’s Brenda Emmanus reported on this year’s wholly public art event.
