Live at Frieze London 2014

Frieze, London

February 5, 2014

16–19 October 2014                                                       

Frieze announces the introduction of Live, a new section of Frieze London 2014 that will be dedicated to ambitious participatory works. Applications to Live are now open to galleries.

Live will give galleries the opportunity to realise works that create moments of interruption or immersion within the fair’s environment. A limited number of stands will be made available for live works. The applications that are selected to be realised in the new section will benefit from no stand rental fee. 

Proposals will be welcomed that include interactive installations, architectural interventions, timed or durational performances, interdisciplinary projects or live works. Also encouraged are applications that transform the usual spaces of the fair, taking place in cafes, corridors, public squares or the auditorium. Joint proposals between galleries are permitted.  

Live is selected by the Frieze London selection committee, with Nicola Lees, curator of Frieze Foundation, acting as a special advisor to the committee. Applications for Live close on 18 February 2014.  

Frieze London
One of the world’s leading art fairs, Frieze London will take place 16–19 October 2014.  Sponsored by Deutsche Bank for the 11th consecutive year, the 2014 fair introduces a number of changes, including the evolution of the Focus section—which will feature a broader range of galleries established in the 21st century and give greater flexibility to their presentations.
