Frieze Sculpture will also collaborate with two major public art initiatives, the 11th edition of Sculpture in The City, an annual exhibition of contemporary art placed among the striking architecture of the City of London, and the Mayor of London’s Fourth Plinth Programme in Trafalgar Square. Together, they will form Sculpture Week London, a city-wide celebration of public art featuring work by 38 artists. 

Clare Lilley, Director of Yorkshire Sculpture Park commented: ‘This is my tenth year as curator of Frieze Sculpture. It’s been a wonderful decade of working with the Frieze teams, installation crews, galleries, and with a range of exceptional artists. Since 2012, Frieze Sculpture has gone from being a week-long display alongside the fair, to a substantial summer and now autumn exhibition for London. Each year I set out to make a show that serves one of the world’s leading art fairs, as well as those who might never before have considered looking at sculpture. No two Frieze Sculptures are the same but all are a paean to sculpture in the open air.’

The 2022 display engages with a number of themes; works by Robert Indiana, John Giorno, John Wood and Paul Harrison, and Tim Etchells are structured as texts, conveying messages that merge poetry and political messages. The poetic-political plays out further in the work of Péju Alatise and Ro Robertson, whose gazes turn to female and non-binary healing in nature, and Shaikha al Mazrou, Beverly Pepper and Ida Ekblad create ambitious sculptures that are charged with the sensibility of women. The importance of coming together – as community and as a social voice – is conveyed in works by Marinella Senatore, Pablo Reinoso, and Ron Arad. Finally, as our world looks with uncertainty into the near future, works by Alicja Kwade, George Rickey, Emma Hart and NS Harsha conjure the universal and spiritual, whilst folklore and mythology are explored by Matthew Darbyshire and Jordy Kerwick.
