Frieze Sculpture 2017 has now opened in The English Gardens of Regents Park, London, for the entire Summer.  On show until 8th October, this large-scale exhibition en plein air is free to all viewers.  Featuring leading international galleries, this is Frieze’s first ever show in this setting.  23 leading artists will have their prestigious sculptures presented in this stunning, visual space.

Each piece has been carefully selected by Clare Lilley (Director of Programmes, Yorkshire Sculpture Park) followed by an Open Call for submissions – with 25 new and significant works by leading 20th-century and contemporary artists from around the world.  These include: Magdalena Abakanowicz, Rasheed Araeen, Urs Fischer, KAWS, Alicja Kwade, Michael Craig-Martin,  Sarah Sze and Ugo Rondinone.

Clare Lilley said of the exhibition:-

‘From the playful to the political, these 25 works explore contemporary sculpture’s material and technical dexterity, together with its social role and reflection on the human condition and our environment…’.
