As in previous years, Frieze Art Fair London 2015 featured Frieze Sculpture Park, an exhibition of sculpture, installations, and performances within walking distance of the fair in the English Gardens of Regent’s Park. The Frieze Sculpture Park 2015 is curated by Clare Lilley (Director of Programme, Yorkshire Sculpture Park) and comprises 16 new and historical works by international artists. This time, many of the works will remain on view to visitors to The Regent’s Park until 10 January 2016. This video takes you on a tour of the Frieze Sculpture Park 2015. In a separate video that’s going to be published soon we’ll have a dedicated look at Arni Sala’s performance work by Anri Sala.
