An Arty Party: What does it take to be chosen for Frieze?

Weds. 7th Sept.  7pm – 9pm.

Fold Gallery.  158 New Cavendish St, London W1W 6YW.


The art season in London kicks off again in September and culminates during the week of Frieze in October – a week in which the whole of the kooky-collective of the contemporary art world descends on London. Art writer Nico Kos Earle will give us a brief insight into some of the questions museum curators, art critics and major collectors are asking of contemporary artists, ahead of FOLD Gallery Director Kim Savage’s in depth discussion on his current show by artist Kes Richardson. Savage will also shed some light on his criteria for selecting artists and what a gallery really needs to do – group shows, solo shows, catalogues, and art fairs – to give their artists a viable platform.


Learn what it is they’re looking for and why is it that so much of what we see at first glance is incomprehensible? What is it that distinguishes an artist and how can we begin to determine if their work will have a lasting impact.


Come mingle with beautiful people in this calm, elegant space and enjoy a fantastic evening of good conversation and contemporary art.   Ticket price includes wine and canapés.
