Frieze Projects East open

The artists that are taking part in Frieze Projects East are: Can Altay, Sarnath Banerjee, Anthea Hamilton & Nicholas Byrne, Gary Webb, and Klaus Weber, as well as Ruth Ewan, the recipient of the CREATE art award. The series has been programmed by Frieze Foundation curator Sarah McCrory.

Curated and produced by Frieze Foundation, Frieze Projects East is a series of six new public art projects that form part of the London 2012 Festival, the finale of the Cultural Olympiad. Frieze Projects East is Frieze Foundation’s first programme in public spaces.

The projects are taking place in the six east London Host Boroughs for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games: Barking & Dagenham, Greenwich, Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets, and Waltham Forest and seek to engage both local audiences and visitors to the area.

Frieze Projects East has been commissioned by CREATE and The London 2012 Festival as part of their commitment to bring artists to east London in 2012. The series receives significant funding support from the National Lottery through the Olympic Lottery Distributor and Arts Council England.

The London 2012 Festival is a 12-week nationwide celebration that will run until 9 September. The CREATE 2012 summer programme runs until the end of August and features new commissions and artistic collaborations in numerous venues across east London.
