Frieze Week: Saturday

The shows, talks and performances continue for the third day of Frieze London and Frieze Masters

Start at Frieze Masters for a peruse of Collections, which this year ranges from paintings and prints by Kawanabe Kyosai (Israel Goldman Japanese Prints) to Andean textiles dating from 200 BC (Paul Hughes Fine Arts).

At Spotlight, discover single-artist presentations by under-recognised modern masters like Maryn Varbanov (Bank), Liliane Lijn (espaivisor) and 'John Dogg' - a pseudonym Richard Prince used in the 1980s (Venus over Manhattan). And don't miss first-time exhibitor Galerie Jean-Christophe Charbonnier's spectacular Japanese armour, helmets and masks.

At 12pm, pull up a seat in the auditorium for Peter Blake in conversation with Colin Wiggins; the fifth in this year's series of Frieze Masters Talks. Chiming with Waddington Custot's recreation of Blake's West London studio at G2, the discussion will address the relationship between art making and curating. 

Alternatively, head to the Frieze London to hear Asif Kapadia (director of Amy and Senna) share her insight into documentary making in a 'post-truth' world. This will take place at 12.30pm in the auditorium. Then later at 4.30pm, Superflex explore shifting perceptions and parallel realities in their talk 'Today, Tomorrow, Together'. 

Over at the Reading Room, join frieze assistant editor Harry Thorne in conversation with artist Luke Willis Thompson at 2pm. Addressing the issue of cultural appropriation and representation, the talk relates to a survey currently published in the October issue of frieze magazine. Then later at 3.30pm, catch Wired magazine's talk on social media for the arts at 3.30pm. Closing the day of talks in the Reading Room, Artforum magazine will host a talk with artist Hannah Black at 5.30pm.

If you’re in the mood for a different sort of interaction, check out Live, for innovative, performance-based presentations: Mark Fell translates music into movement in Numb Imperatives at 12.30pm; Neha Choksi gags her mouth in Frame our ears open at 1.30pm; Candida Powell-Williams turns medieval marginalia into yogic photo-ops in Boredom and its Acid Touch at 2.30pm; and Agatha Gothe-Snape converses casually with invited artists at 3.30pm in Every Artist Remembered.

 

Check back during the week for more of the day-by-day guide to London's most significant art week.
