Despite the name, Frieze are helping sculptures move.
Because for the ninth year now Frieze Sculpture has turned the English Gardens in Regent’s Park into “a museum without walls” by filling the place with sculptures from 20 of the biggest names in modern art.
Vanessa da Silva, Muamba Grove #1
This year the sculptures have been inspired by themes as broad-ranging as ‘civic navigation’ to the climate crisis and displacement, and the artists on the 17-strong roster include Isamu Noguchi (whose Barbican retrospective opens at the end of September), Ibrahim El-Salahi, Rose Wylie and Vanessa da Silva.
Anthony Caro, Palanquin
It’s free of course, and there’s even an app with an audio tour so you can find out precisely why there’s an enormous painted bronze pineapple in front of you.
And a lot of it is quite moving.
NOTE: Frieze Sculpture 2021 is running now until 31st October in the English Gardens at Regent’s Park. It’s free, and there’s no need to book ahead. You can find out more right HERE.
