LIVE: Denzil Forrester

Presented by Stephen Friedman Gallery

8-11 October
all day 12-6pm
Institute of Melodic Healing
9 Cork Street
London
United Kingdom

Drawing on the important role that both dance and music have played in the transformation of the visual arts, the IMH will present key works by artist Denzil Forrester, including Youth of the Day (1989), that vibrantly depicts the dancing bodies that populated London’s reggae and dub nightclubs in East London during the 1980s, as well as historic and new works on paper.

Free and open to the public, except for at 3-4pm on Thursday 8 October, when the space will closed for Denzil Forrester's conversation with curator Victor Wang. The talk will be also recorded and released on IGTV @friezeartfair and on Frieze.com on 9th October.

LIVE is Frieze London's showcase for Live Art and sound. This year LIVE is curated by Victor Wang (王宗孚) (Artistic Director and Chief Curator of M WOODS Museum, Beijing). For the first time ever, LIVE will take place at 9 Cork Street in London, where Wang and a group of artists, will establish a temporary Institute of Melodic Healing during Frieze Week. This institute of sound and performance will last for 111 hours, aiming to promote community and healing by thinking through sound and body.
