ORGAN: The Factory Project is a triumphant way to get your teeth into Frieze week, an ambitiously big art show that really does lay down a challenge…

Frieze week then, we’ve been to the Cork Street launch, we’ve been swamped with the press releases, the 9am openings and the zoom press conferences, the swarms of information about the other fairs, we’ve asked questions and today the massive monster of a fair itself opens up in Regent’s Park, here’s we go them. or…

ORGAN: Frieze London is two weeks away, we just zoomed in and caught the press conference launch ahead of the return of the mutha of all giant art fairs and all that it stands for…

So here we are in a Frieze zoom afternoon meeting press conference thing some two weeks out from the return of the monster big mutha art fair that is Frieze London.

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…
