ORGAN: The Ten Best Things we saw during 2021’s Frieze Week, Deborah Roberts, The Pink Bear, The Factory Project, Kendall Koppe Gallery, Kate Bickmore’s must-see paintings at Annka Kultys Gallery and…

The end of Frieze week list thing, everyone loves a list right? Not that we’re claiming to have seen everything and been absolutely everywhere, we’re not arrogant enough to call this a “best of” or anything like that – we did go to a lot of things we didn;t choose to cover, we are as…

ORGAN: Frieze is open but where’s the “wow” this year? And where was that elephant? Was the art any good on day one of Frieze London 2021? 

You’re bombarded with it all, paintings to the left, paintings to the right, lines and lines of politely hung gallery booths, dozens and dozens of clean cut galleries from London, Tokyo, New York, Berlin, South Africa, India, Mexico, Margate, Glasgow, hours of them, days of them, no way can you see it all, an endless…

ORGAN: Monday morning, way too many pianos, Crass people doing Lewis Carroll, Frieze London is on, a new Caravan album? Here and Now, 35 oranges from Whitechapel, Passengers and whatever the in-box offers today…

What a half-hearted morning, the morning after the summer before, “Hi, I just wanted to remind You that V/A “Brutality Garden. Vol.1” is out in two days! Have a nice week.

Is opulent the right word?…

ORGAN: Frieze Week Part Two, avoiding the art fair madness? The excitement of those Sean Scully paintings at Blain/Southern, punchbags, red roads, goose feathers and a strong 21st Century Women show at Unit…

Frieze Week Part Two:  Leave Moniker and Part One behind and wonder why so and so’s art wasn’t in there, and where was thingy and they do miss out on so much of the cutting edge in terms of the art they show at Moniker don’t they? So conservative, so playing it so very very…

ORGAN: Frieze Week Part One, art fair madness? shouty American interns? Is Frieze to only slice of honesty in town? Did Moniker offer anything more this time? Rocco and His Brothers, Egle Zvirblyte…

Well at least there weren’t railway tracks, none of that train yard bullshit this year – art fair season is upon us again here in good old London town, loads of loud American gallery interns telling us this and that when they clearly haven’t a clue where the real heart of it is, that couple…
