Top five pieces from the Freize and the Freize Masters

Staff Writer Izzy Harris

The Frieze Art Fair takes place during the first weekend of October in Regent’s Park each year. Having never been before,  I had my sights set on attending the renowned contemporary and modern art fair, as well as its traditional pre-20th-Century companion exhibition, Frieze Masters, in the hopes of understanding what about Frieze draws the attention of anyone ranging from art analysts to civilians like me.

To be completely candid, I probably am the least qualified person to give this review. Although I find myself frequently visiting art exhibitions and installations around London, I am quite possibly as far from an art critic as one can get.
