Frieze London is housed in a bespoke structure in The Regent’s Park. Located in the heart of London, it is within easy walking distance of the city’s West End.

The Frieze Artist Award

The Frieze Artist Award, this year supported by the LUMA Foundation, is a major opportunity to present ambitious, site-specific work as part of the Frieze Projects programme. The Award is open to UK and international artists between 25–40 years of age. Frieze is delighted that the LUMA Foundation will be the exclusive partner of the Frieze Artist Award for the next three years. 

Artists were invited to propose a new work to be realized at Frieze London 2015 as part of its critically acclaimed Frieze Projects programme, produced under the guidance of Curator Nicola Lees and the Frieze Projects team. Proposals should respond to the environment of the London fair. Applicants will be judged on the innovative nature of their proposal and the potential for its realization at Frieze London. 

The winner will be announced May 2015.
