Social Work at Frieze

Social Work is a new Section dedicated to women all around the world who challenged the art world. It is by far this year’s talk of the town with artwork from both well-known and overlooked female artists, who address questions of identity, labor and visibility in their work. Jo Stella-Sawicka says its “A response to the hard fact that women are still under-represented in every part of the art world’.
Social Work is an invitational section of the art fair, last years theme was the controversial, Sex Work: Radical Politics and Feminist Art curated by Alison M. Gingeras. “Social Work” features eight monographic presentations by women artists and pays homage to a selection of women who challenged the status quo and explored the possibilities of political activism in their art making.

Whalegaming.com Recommendations on What to see at Frieze

Frieze can be overwhelming, too much to see in too little time, therefor Whale Lifestyle has to make finding your way through the fair slightly easier, pulled together some of the key things to look out for over the course of the art fair. The British artist David Shrigley has created a site-specific installation for this year’s fair, which will showcase four different elements of his work: a series of large-scale neons, a two-screen digital animation, a sound-based installation and a collection of works on paper. It is designed to look like a shop front, the installation highlights the themes that run throughout Shrigley’s work, particularly his deadpan humor and use of satire. Also, do not miss out on the unseen artworks from legendary German photographer Wolfgang Tillmans and Turner Prize winner Chris Ofili at David Zwirner Gallery. Frieze also spotlights some of the best emerging galleries from across the world through its “Focus” section. This year, some of the stand-out galleries from “Focus” include Hong Kong’s Edouard Malingue Gallery — which will host an immersive installation by Wong Ping — as well as New York-based 47 Canal and London’s Arcadia Missa.

Whalegaming.com Recommendations on Where to Stay in London during Frieze

Whale Gaming is an expert at this next part as Frieze is located very close to the WHALE headquarters. Our favorite hotels around the area are situated in Marylebone. There is our all time favorite the Chiltern Firehouse, an Andre Balazs luxury hotel and restaurant. Vogue describes this hotel the best, ” a night spent at the hotel moves from stage to stage, act to act, with all the lightness of touch, wit and irreverence of an Oscar Wilde play, except that at the end – many, many hours past cocktail hour – the plot has a habit of twisting into something a little more rock’n’roll than a comedy of manners. ” Another great hotel situated close by is the Marylebone Hotel, A stone’s throw from the department stores and boutiques of Oxford Street and Mayfair and the independent restaurants and markets of Marylebone High Street, The Marylebone hotel harnesses the infectious energy and style of W1 at every turn. The charm and buzz of the chic 108 Brasserie; a yoga class playing out in the hotel’s decked courtyard; an advertising brainstorm underway in the next-door Library; or treadmills being pounded in the luxury Third Space gym, pool and spa – it all makes for a ‘village’ feel.
