As a preview of the eponymous art fair, Frieze Sculpture Park 2018 currently features the works of twenty-five artists including Rana Begum, Kiki Smith, Dan Graham, and Elmgreen & Dragset among many more luminaries in the grounds of Regent’s Park. Inaugurated at the beginning of July, the outdoor exhibition runs until 7th October. All works are accessible for free and they’re all on sale.

“The 2018 edition is just as expansive and diverse, so that the public and collectors alike can experience world-class artwork in the beautiful English Gardens, designed by Markham Nesfield in 1866. My hope is that the exhibition will give pause for thought as well as great pleasure, and that visitors to Regent’s Park will have a snapshot of the fantastic imagination of artists and variety of sculpture being made today” – Clare Lilley, Curator said about this year’s edition. Clare is Director of Programme, Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

Michele Mathison’s street-lamp sculptures, exploring historical collapse and decay, dialogue with Tim Etchells’ new text-based work, Everything is Lost, an artwork that instills notions of resistance and comments on political changes.

For the consecutive year, Frieze Sculpture Park brings together a strong selection of monumental installations which complements al fresco activities and the festival season.
