London always makes up for its shit weather and overall craziness with an unparalleled access to global culture and creativity, at all levels. Enter Frieze Art Fair 2017 and Frieze Masters, downtown at Regents Park. Oddly enough, it was the best place to take curious kids this past Saturday, what with the aforementioned shit weather about.
I'm not always sure what to make of art fairs, given the subjectivity and volatility of the whole scene. Still, besides staking out the galleries in Mayfair, Frieze is probably the easiest way to take a quick pulse of the international, commercial art world.
And to casually scope out the art people, who are always so thoroughly entertaining to watch in their natural habitat.
