Frieze Week Hits London

Frieze Week, a seven-day concentration of art events, is currently underway in London. Between auctions, selling exhibitions, and a swath of fairs, approximately $2.2 billion worth of art will be up for grabs.

The epicenter of the event, the Frieze Art Fair, will open to VIP guests on Tuesday, October 14. Now in its twelfth year, the fair will present contemporary offerings from 162 international dealers, including Gagosian Gallery, Marian Goodman Gallery, Hauser & Wirth, Casey Kaplan, Lehmann Maupin, Pace Gallery, Galerie Perrotin, Sprüth Magers, White Cube, and David Zwirner. Located in a bespoke structure in Regent’s Park, the Frieze Art Fair features a number of unique sections.

One of the buildings changing the visual landscape of Chelsea, and causing rents in the area to bubble, is the Norman Foster-designed residential tower at 551 W. 21st Street, right down the street from Casey Kaplan Gallery (which is moving to the Flower District). It’s also the building that Lisa Spellman’s 303 Gallery will be moving back into when it’s complete in 2015.

The building is one of four Manhattan towers designed by Foster that are either under construction or on the cusp of breaking ground, according to an article in the New York Times, which examines the moment that Norman Foster is currently having in New York. Also in the works by the Starchitect are two more condominiums at 50 United Nations Plaza and 610 Lexington Avenue, as well as an office tower at 425 Park Avenue.
