Frieze Art Fair

 London’s most famous contemporary art fair returns for its 12th edition this 2014 . The fair, held at Regents Park between the 15th- 18th October, represents the work and galleries of contemporary art from living artists only making it one of a kind. Talks, artists commissions and film projects make up the event and all of the aspects are highly interactive and performative, encouraging the audience and visitors to engage entirely with the artists and art itself. Beyonce and Jay Z attended the opening night looking suitably artistic. Here are our top 5 pieces!
