Sedition Guide To Frieze Week 2016

The New Brutalists by Jane and Louise Wilson

 

It’s that time of year again in London – with the arrival of Frieze London and Frieze Masters, the city becomes a hub for the international art community during early October as galleries and artists from across the world converge for a busy programme of talks, exhibitions and satellite events. We’ve put together a guide to this year’s Frieze Week for Sedition artists and collectors, with a focus on Sedition artists and digital art.

Sedition Picks At Frieze

Frieze Art Fair showcases the work of artists and gallerists from around the world in London’s Regents Park. This year, the fair features a series of interactive interventions, a celebration of the legacy of the 1990s, and a keynote talk by Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry. As a platform for the presentation and distribution of digital editions of art, Sedition is drawn to work which actively explores the influence of the digital medium on art. The influence of the digital can be seen in the work of emerging and established artists alike. Here are a few Sedition picks for navigating Frieze:

1. Jane & Louise Wilson

On 7 October Jane and Louise Wilson join Wolfgang Tillmans, Julia Peyton-Jones and Adrian Searle will discuss how London’s contemporary art scene has changed since the 1990s. The talk, titled Upstarts / New ‘90s Art’ is part of a strand of the festival which celebrates 25 years of Frieze Magazine by focusing on the influence of the 90s on current art practices. The talk is a chance to reflect not only on how much things have changed in the past 25 years, but also looking ahead at how things are set to change in future.

2. Yuri Pattinson

In a new installation to be unveiled at the Fair, Yuri Pattison, the winner of the Frieze Artist Award 2016, will examine systems for the interpretation of ‘Big Data’ with a fair-wide network of screens which display – digitally interpreted – live responses to the behaviour of consumers at the fair. By mirroring data interpretation systems more generally the work thinks through the mechanics and politics underlying data management, and emphasises its connection to people and objects. Pattison’s work is part of the Frieze Projects programme, curated by Raphael Gygax and supported by the LUMA Foundation.

3. Samson Young

Another of this year’s Frieze Projects, Samson Young’s When I have fears that I may cease to be, what would you give in exchange for your soul is a multimedia walk through the fair venue loosely based on Graham Greene’s Ministry of Fear. Young, a sound artist and composer born and based in Hong Kong, uses music playlists, photographs, research materials and site-specific films to create an unsettling narrative in the form of a series of surveillance reports on a bookshop owner whose trade is in personal confessions.

4. Edward Thomasson & Lucy Beech / Amalia Ulman

Alongside Frieze Projects and Frieze Talks, Frieze London Live intervenes in art fair proceedings with a programme of live interactive interventions. Sedition recommends looking out for an auditorium based choreographic work by Edward Thomasson & Lucy Beech, represented by Southard Reid, and an intimate performative work by Amalia Ulman (Arcadia Missa).

5. Angelo Plessas

At Booth H13, The Breeder presents an installation by Angelo Plessas titled Eternal Internet Brother/Sisterhood I-III. The work is an immersive installation, a platform and a network; it actively connects artists working internationally with online art. The work was first exhibited at the Museum of Cycladic Art in Athens and was awarded the 2015 Deste Prize.

Visitors to London during Frieze Week are spoilt for choice where exhibitions are concerned, as galleries across the city showcase incredible projects, monumental artworks and must-see talks. Works and events including a number of Sedition artists feature among the events in London from 5-9 October. We’ve put together a run-through of Sedition artist events to add to your Frieze Week calendar; we’ve also included exhibitions by artists whose work engages directly with digital art.

The exhibition is organised by Hayward Gallery and The Vinyl Factory and is accompanied by a party and performance evening on 6 October. Earlier in the evening on 6th, head to the Private View of Yinka Shonibare’s solo exhibition …and the wall fell away at Stephen Friedman Gallery.

From 11am – 1pm on 8 October, see Shezad Dawood in conversation with Nicolas Bourriaud at Timothy Taylor as part of the artist’s solo exhibition Kalimpong, which combines traditional art practices and mythologies with Virtual Reality.

In Shoreditch, works by Elmgreen & Dragset and Isaac Julien are included in group exhibition Protest at Victoria Miro. The exhibition is open during Frieze week alongside Victoria Miro’s booth at the fair, which features the work of Yayoi Kusama, Chantal Joffe and Grayson Perry.
