Cocktails, art fairs, film, food and partying - the perfect weekend comboMore
What is art? Tough question, and one you may have spent hours stroking your chin over at A-level. Much easier to answer is: WHERE is art? Because this weekend, it's at Regent's Park. Returning for its 15th year, Frieze London gathers together over 160 of the biggest, best and most boundary-pushing galleries into a big fancy tent, letting you see all that's causing a stir in sculpture, painting and installations. Frieze Projects is where you'll find the emerging Next Big Things, while at Frieze Masters you can check out everything from ancient artefacts to Picasso. Grab a glass of fizz, furrow your brow and people-watch – that, at least, we have down to a fine art.
5-8 Oct; from £27.95
Frieze and Frieze Masters, Regent's Park, NW1 4NR
The trouble with Frieze is that it triggers art-appreciation addiction. We need even edgier pieces! By even more exciting artists! NOW! Thank goodness, then, we can get our next fix right away at this alternative showcase of 130 emerging artists at The Old Truman Brewery. From Dex X's maps made into art, to the gorgeous graphics of Lene Bladjberg and the intricate 3D 'book sculptures' of Alexander Korzer-Robinson, it's four days of nothing but the most cutting edge on the scene. Just don't ask what we'll do afterwards *shakes from art withdrawal*
