Every age has considered itself “modern” and “contemporary,” and transmitted that self-image through its art and architecture.
Here on offer is a message from our own age: masterpieces of modern and contemporary art at Frieze London, one of the world’s most influential art fairs, underway in The Regent’s Park in the heart of the British capital until October 15.
Frieze London is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year in what promises to be the biggest and most international edition to date. On offer: 21st-century works from over 1,000 of today’s leading and up-and-coming artists from more than 160 galleries spanning 46 countries.
Its sister fair, Frieze Masters, is a showcase of pre-2000 artworks and features a special section dedicated to women artists.
Inspired by Frieze London, Luxury Defined spotlights three exemplars of contemporary residential architecture.
In these sleek, contemporary forms, luxury, comfort, and elegant design engage with the world and what critic Robert Hughes called the engine of modernism: “the shock of the new.”
