Frieze London will once again foreground new ideas that are shaping conversations about contemporary art today. Sandhini Poddar (Adjunct Curator at the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi) will curate this year’s special section, Indra’s Net, which is a term derived from Buddhist and Hindu thought and refers to an ethics of being in which an individual atom holds within it the structure of reality.

Poddar refers to the idea as akin to ‘a vast bejeweled net: at every nexus there is a reflective orb that mirrors and refracts every other orb in its entirety. Every part is held within the whole in a system of dependent origination. All sentient life is interconnected and interdependent; shifts to one atom subtly alter the rest.’

Indra’s Net’ will feature 10 dedicated presentations, as well as a number of cabinet-style displays scattered throughout the main section of the fair, and will feature artists including Muhanned Cader (Jhaveri Contemporary, Stand IN2); Dorothy Cross (Kerlin Gallery & Frith Street Gallery, Stand IN6); Shirazeh Houshiary (Lisson Gallery, Stand IN10); Jamilah Sabur & Oscar Santillán (Copperfield, Stand IN7); Eddie Rodolfo Aparicio & Clarissa Tossin (Commonwealth and Council, Stand IN5); Martha Atienza (Silverlens Galleries, Stand IN8); Teresita Fernández (Lehmann Maupin, Stand F2); Claudia Andujar (Vermelho, Stand G10); Tomás Díaz Cedeño (Peana, Stand IN4); Tuan Andrew Nguyen (Galerie Quynh, Stand IN3); Chandraguptha Thenuwara (Saskia Fernando Gallery, Stand IN9); Prabhakar Pachpute (Experimenter, Stand A4); Claudia Martínez Garay (Grimm, Stand IN11); Goshka Macuga (Kate MacGarry, Stand A16); and Richard Mosse (Jack Shainman Gallery, Stand B8).
