Frieze revealed the names of the participating galleries of Frieze London and Frieze Masters, which will take place from October 12th to 16th 2022 in The Regent’s Park, London. Bringing together galleries from 42 countries, the two fairs will celebrate the creative spirit of the city. Led by Eva Langret, Frieze London will feature over 160 of the world’s leading contemporary galleries. Frieze Masters, directed by Nathan Clements-Gillespie, will feature over 110 galleries, showing work from ancient to modern.
Eva Langret, Director of Frieze London said: ‘This year’s fair promises to not only celebrate the cultural life of London but also showcase its global reach. Our participating gallery list reflects the city’s position as an international centre, bringing together some of the most exciting galleries, from major names to emerging spaces. Our special sections, of Focus and Indra’s Net, will promote discovery and foreground some of the most exciting creative ideas that are shaping conversations on contemporary art today.’
Nathan Clements-Gillespie, Director of Frieze Masters added: ‘2022 marks an exciting year for Frieze Masters as we celebrate the fair’s tenth anniversary and our launch in Seoul. This year the fair will deliver an unmissable mix of art from across six millennia of history, featuring some of the most loved-figures as well as highlighting previously unknown talent. From Neolithic China to Nigeria in the 1960s, the opportunity for discovery is particularly evident in our special sections Spotlight, curated by Camille Morineau and AWARE, dedicated to pioneering women artists from the 20th century, and Stand Out which returns under the guidance of Luke Syson.’
A strong line up of galleries from across the globe will participate in Frieze London 2022, offering visitors the opportunity to encounter the work of some of the most important artists working today, as well as the discovery of new names.

Alongside the main section of the fair, Focus is devoted to galleries established in the last 12 years, with participants including: Addis Fine Art, Emalin, Ginsberg, Hot Wheels, Kiang Malingue, Sweetwater, Tiwani Contemporary and Gallery Vacancy.
‘Indra’s Net’ will feature 10 dedicated presentations, as well as a number of cabinet-style displays scattered throughout the main section of the fair, and will feature artists including: Eddie Rodolfo Aparicio & Clarissa Tossin (Commonwealth and Council); Claudia Andujar (Vermelho); Martha Atienza (Silverlens); Dorothy Cross (Kerlin Gallery); Shirazeh Houshiary (Lisson Gallery); Tuan Andrew Nguyen (Galerie Quynh); Chandraguptha Thenuwara (Saskia Fernando Gallery); and Ayman Zedani (ATHR).
Across the park, Frieze Masters will bring together six millennia of art – from rare antiquities to Old Master paintings, to luminaries of the 20th century – creating a destination where visitors can discover art history anew. The fair features major galleries including Johnny Van Haeften, Hazlitt Holland-Hibbert, Gallery Hyundai, Luxembourg + Co., Kamel Mennour, Helly Nahmad, Shibunkaku, Skarstedt and Van de Weghe, alongside specialists in their field, such as ArtAncient, Gisèle Croës – Arts d’Extrême Orient s.a, Peter Finer, Sam Fogg and Dr. Jörn Günther Rare Books.
The much-celebrated Spotlight section of Frieze Masters will this year be curated by Camille Morineau (co-founder and Research Director of AWARE– Archives of Women Artists, Research, and Exhibitions) and the AWARE team and be dedicated to women artists. Featuring 26 artists, all born between 1900 and 1951, Spotlight will feature major modern figures, alongside the work of lesser-known names, shining a new light on half a century of art history. Artists featured in this year’s Spotlight include: Sonia Balassanian, Wook-kyung Choi, Nike Davies-Okundaye, Leonor Fini, Orlan and Sylvia Snowden.
Returning from 2021, Frieze Masters will also feature the section Stand Out, curated by Luke Syson (Director of Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge), which will this year focus on the idea of Global Exchange and bring together art objects from across the ages that are great works of design, of sculptural and conceptual brilliance. Stand Out looks beyond hierarchical distinctions between works of art in different media, and in doing so reconsiders art objects often termed ‘decorative’ or ‘functional.’ Participating galleries include Prahlad Bubbar, Gisèle Croës – Arts d’Extrême Orient s.a., Peter Finer, Sam Fogg, Oscar Graf, Oscar Humphries, Lullo • Pampoulides, Amir Mohtashemi and Raccanello & Leprince.
Frieze London and Frieze Masters have been supported by Deutsche Bank, as Global Lead Partner, for 19 years, continuing a shared commitment to artistic excellence and support of emerging artists. 2022 sees the continuation of the partnership, with key initiatives in London this autumn to include the launch of the fourth Frieze x Deutsche Bank Emerging Curator’s Fellowship, and the next installment of Art:LIVE, enabling viewers around the world to enjoy the Frieze London and Frieze Masters fairs. Furthermore, a site specific installation by artist Shezad Dawood that delves into themes of climate change and time using a combination of fact and science fiction will feature in the bank’s lounges at both fairs.
