Stella Santacatterina visits the Frieze Art Fair, London 2012

Stella Santacatterina from Frieze, London.On the days of the Frieze Art Fair, Stella Santacatterina made some interviews with a few exhibitors (Timothy Taylor Gallery, London; Experimenter Contemporary Art, Kolkata, India; Raucci Santamaria, Naples, Italy) and with the curator Denise Robinson.





This year Frieze Art Fair included a new section, Frieze Masters, featuring over 90 international galleries, from ancient to modern. According to Stella, this section was the real core of the Frieze fair this year. Here were exhibited master pieces of African and Tribal art, beautiful works by, among the others, Yves Klein, Piero Manzoni, Sol LeWitt, Henri Matisse, Giorgio Morandi, Joan Mirò, and even Renaissance art works. The level of the works presented at Frieze Masters was high, the venue was less crowded then the one devoted to contemporary art, and overall it all looked like a museum exhibition.
