Frieze Projects 2008: Curatorial Programme Announced
Frieze Projects, presented in association with Cartier, is a programme of artists’ commissions realized annually at Frieze Art Fair. image
Curated by Neville Wakefield, Frieze Projects 2008 includes eleven new commissions as well as The Cartier Award and collaborations with partner institutions Kling og Bang (Iceland) and MUSAC (Spain).
The eleven artists commissioned to create site-specific work for Frieze Art Fair 2008 are Cory Arcangel, Pavel Büchler, Ceal Floyer, Tue Greenfort, Sharon Hayes, Jeppe Hein, Norma Jeane, Agnieszka Kurant, Bert Rodriguez, Alan Ruppersberg and Andreas Slominski.
In 2008 Frieze Projects engages with the ecology of the fair and its surroundings, reflecting on the tensions between nature and culture, pollution and purity, economic gain and strategic loss. Above all Frieze Projects presents art that regards the particular circumstances of Frieze Art Fair as an opportunity to create work that could not exist elsewhere.
The Cartier Award 2008 recipient is Wilfredo Prieto. Prieto will present at Frieze Art Fair a new site-specific commission which addresses issues of sculptural, economic and geo-political accumulation.
