Frieze announces that the Sculpture Park will be open from 5 October 2016 – 8 January 2017, with free entry to all.
Selected by Clare Lilley (Director of Programme, Yorkshire Sculpture Park), 20 iconic works by 20th-century masters and new commissions by contemporary talents will be placed throughout the English Gardens of The Regent’s Park, creating a free outdoor exhibition at the centre of London.
For the first time, Art Fund is the Programming Partner for the Sculpture Park. World-leading galleries in Frieze London and Frieze Masters (6–9 October) will extend their shows outside the fair, dramatizing the landscape of The Regent’s Park, and beyond Frieze Week, with 19 works remaining on view until 8 January 2017.
For the fourth year the Art Fund, the national fundraising charity for art, will develop a free, dedicated app for the Sculpture Park.
British post-war artists are represented by Eduardo Paolozzi, Barry Flanagan and Lynn Chadwick, whilst young and established international artists Nairy Baghramian, Zeng Fanzhi, Claude Lalanne, Huang Rui, Jose Dávila, Matthew Monahan and Goshka Macuga amplify the selection. Mikayel Ohanjanyan, Renato Nicolodi, and Fernando Casasempere each offer newly made works, as does Conrad Shawcross, whose six-metre-high steel sculpture is a study for his major 2016 commission for the Greenwich Peninsula, while Henry Krokatsis’ imaginary sauna-shed reflects the traditional bandstands and shelters found in London’s parks.
