Frieze Projects
Frieze Projects is a unique programme of artists’ commissions realised annually at Frieze Art Fair. This year the Projects are curated by Sarah McCrory and are supported by the Emdash Foundation.

The artists commissioned to create these eight site-specific works for Frieze Art Fair are: Bik Van der Pol, Pierre Huyghe, Christian Jankowski, Oliver Laric, LuckyPDF, Peles Empire, Laure Prouvost and Cara Tolmie.

This year’s programme incorporates a number of unique viewpoints throughout the fair that will demand a shift in viewers’ perception.

The Emdash Award
The winner of the Emdash Award 2011 is the video and performance artist Anahita Razmi, who is based in Stuttgart. Razmi will present a new commission that intends to draw attention to how Tehran’s skyline was recently used by protestors after the Iranian presidential election. She will use choreographer Trisha Brown’s 1971 work Roof Piece, which took place on 12 different rooftops over a ten-block area in downtown New York, as its point of departure. The work will be presented as a video installation at Frieze Art Fair.

Frieze Film
Frieze Film is a programme of artist films screened to coincide with Frieze Art Fair. This year it is curated by Sarah McCrory and includes five commissioned films that will be shown in the auditorium at the fair and will be previewed in a new post-watershed Channel 4 arts slot during the week of Frieze Art Fair from Monday 10 October to Friday 14 October.
The artists commissioned to make new work for Frieze Film are: Ed Atkins, Lutz Bacher, Anthea Hamilton, Judith Hopf and Katarina Zdjelar.

Frieze Talks
John Bock, Daniel Buren, Adam Curtis, Alison Knowles and Taryn Simon, are all part of the international line-up of highly respected artists, filmmakers, curators and cultural commentators taking part in Frieze Talks 2011.

Frieze Talks is a daily programme of keynote lectures, panel debates and discussions that take place in the auditorium at Frieze Art Fair. It is presented by Frieze Foundation and programmed by the editors of frieze magazine, Jennifer Higgie, Jörg Heiser and Dan Fox.

Sculpture Park
The Sculpture Park offers a rare opportunity to see a significant group of international work that is addressed on a public scale. Presented in the wonderful setting of the English Gardens of Regent’s Park, the Sculpture Park is located a short walk to the east of the entrance to the fair. The Sculpture Park is free to the public.

This year’s Sculpture Park presents work by some of the most acclaimed international sculptors. These include new works by Thomas Houseago and Claudia Fontes, as well as pieces by Tom Friedman and Kiki Smith.

The Stand Prize
The third year of the Frieze Art Fair Stand Prize, sponsored by Champagne Pommery, will be judged by: Tom Eccles (Director, The Centre for Curatorial Studies at Bard College, New York); Karola Kraus (Director, MUMOK, Vienna); Stéphanie Trembley (Independent Curator, Beaux Arts magazine, Paris). A prize of 10,000 GBP will go to the most innovative gallery stand at the fair. The prize will be awarded at 4pm at the fair on Wednesday 12 October.

The Outset/Frieze Art Fair fund to Benefit the Tate Collection
This unique partnership between Outset, Frieze Art Fair and Tate, based on the generosity of Outset, a charitable foundation focused on supporting new art, enables Tate to buy important work by emerging artists at the fair for the national collection. 83 works by 54 significant international artists have been collected since 2003.

The guest curators for the fund in 2011 will be: Adam Szymczyk (Director of the Kunsthalle Basel) and José Roca (Curator working out of Bogotá and Philadelphia, where he is currently Artistic Director of Philagrafika 2010; and Curator of Mercosul Biennial 2011).
