Looking for something to do this weekend? There are a few spaces left on Saturday’s cultural tour Looking to Frieze lead by author, presenter and art expert Richard Stemp. The tour builds up to the opening of the international Frieze Festival by looking at the two main aspects, the contemporary art of Frieze London and the historic side that is Frieze Masters.
Frieze London is explored through our local Thomas Dane Gallery, Hauser & Wirth, Sadie Coles and Frith Street Gallery, and the fantastic exhibitions opened in preparation for the visiting international art community. Frieze Masters will bring us to the National Gallery and a focus on what's 'hot' in the Old Master art market, while presenting the Old Masters who's works will be on show at Frieze, including Dutch 17th century, Italian Baroque and 19th century Orientalism. The tour will begin at ROSL London with a tea or coffee amongst our own exhibition and will include around 25 minutes of leisurely walking between exhibitions.
