Frieze London 2018 showcases the best of international contemporary art, with a discerning selection of around 160 galleries presenting their most forward-thinking artists and imaginative presentations. Opening for the first time with a two-day Preview, Frieze London coincides with Frieze Sculpture and Frieze Masters in The Regent’s Park, together forming the most significant week in London’s cultural calendar. Global lead partner Deutsche Bank supports Frieze London for the 15th consecutive year, continuing a shared commitment to discovery and artistic excellence.
Andrea Galvani’s performance emanates and migrates throughout the space so that the entire show becomes a soundscape, an experiential orchestra of audio-visual stimuli. ANDREA GALVANI @friezeartfair 2018 #FOCUS Section Booth H17
