The fair is huge, there are almost 200 galleries under one giant white tent, designed by SO-IL Architects and constructed especially for the Fair. Walking from booth to booth can certainly get monotonous and overwhelming – if I saw one mirrored artwork, I saw 50. But the day was also full of discovery, since many of the galleries that exhibit at Frieze come from elsewhere: Capetown, Istanbul, Berlin, Sao Paulo, Milan, Amsterdam, Brussels, Seoul, Mexico City, Glasgow, Copenhagen, Antwerp, etc....
So here are are some of my favorite things from the day.
