Frieze London 2019
October 2019

From Canaletto in Soho to Bauhaus refugees in Hampstead: London has always been a magnet for artists from across Europe and the world. This issue celebrates the international talent that makes London a vital cultural capital, from Nigerian designer Duro Olowu and Italian patron Nicoletta Fiorucci to American painter Elizabeth Peyton, whose dialogue with the National Portrait Gallery’s collection is one of the many unmissable exhibitions on view during Frieze Week in London. You’ll find a global emphasis at the fairs too. First time participation from Brazilian, Lebanese and Estonian galleries and collaborations with curators at institutions from Dhaka to Hong Kong, makes this Frieze London the most international fair we have ever staged. The diversity of art at Frieze Masters features treasures from Asia and masterpieces from the West—including a painting by Botticelli. I’m grateful to Deutsche Bank, our partners and to everyone involved in Frieze Week for bringing the world to London and showing the city at its best—open, international and vibrant as ever.

—Victoria Siddall, Director, Frieze Fairs
