in Frieze | 15 SEP 16

Advised by museum curators Jacob Proctor (Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society, University of Chicago) and Fabian Schöneich (Portikus, Frankfurt), the pioneering section for performance and participatory art returns, with new commissions and historical projects.

Highlights include the international premiere of Para um corpo..., from the series ‘Hábito/Habitante’ by Martha Araújo (Galeria Jaqueline Martins, São Paulo & PM8, Vigo), bringing to light the significance of performance art in Latin America under military dictatorship.

Continuing a political theme, exciting new commissions include a presentation by Gypsum Gallery (Cairo), the first-ever Egyptian gallery to participate in Frieze London, with work by Mahmoud Khaled exploring ideas of censorship and surveillance; and in the first installation of its kind at the fair, the groundbreaking Berlin-based artist Christine Sun Kim, who has been deaf since birth, will explore the materiality of sound through drawing, painting, and performance, opening up new fields of perception to hearing and non-hearing audiences alike (with Carroll/Fletcher, London).
