The opening of London Craft Week (30th September-10th October), while next week, a new kind of Frieze Week launches (5th-12th October). While some events have been forced online (the Frieze viewing room runs 9th-16th October) and joyous opening parties in galleries across the capital have been replaced by more focused and sober timed visits, other elements have remained in place.
Frieze Sculpture is on view in Regent’s Park (5th-18th October) and 1-54, the Contemporary African Art Fair, is taking place in the elegant rooms of Somerset House (8th-10th October), albeit on a reduced scale, alongside an online iteration through Christie’s auction house. Nevertheless, the temporary collapse of the large-scale tented art fair and event-filled peripatetic art week has produced some unexpected and welcome innovations.
