Frieze has revealed details of Frieze Sculpture 2022 in The Regent’s Park, curated by Clare Lilley (Yorkshire Sculpture Park Director) for the tenth consecutive year. Featuring a line-up of 19 international artists, the celebrated public art exhibition opens September 14th through November 13th, 2022.

Frieze Sculpture runs alongside Frieze London and Frieze Masters, which both take place October 12th to 16th 2022 in The Regent’s Park, bringing together the world’s leading galleries to celebrate the creative spirit of the city.

Frieze Sculpture will also collaborate with two major public art initiatives, the 11th edition of Sculpture in The City and the Mayor of London’s Fourth Plinth Programme in Trafalgar Square. Together, they will form Sculpture Week London, a city-wide celebration of public art featuring work by 38 artists. The three initiatives will present an unmissable opportunity for the public to engage with major sculptural works throughout the city, in some of London’s most iconic sites.

Frieze Sculpture 2022 embraces more than two generations of artists, diverse materials and a multitude of approaches to thinking about and making sculpture for the public realm. Situated throughout The Regent’s Park’s historic English Gardens, this year’s exhibition will present artists Péju Alatise, Shaikha Al Mazrou, Matthew Darbyshire, Ida Ekblad, Tim Etchells, John Giorno, N.S. Harsha, Emma Hart, Robert Indiana, Jordy Kerwick, Alicja Kwade, Beverly Pepper, Pablo Reinoso, George Rickey, Ro Robertson, Ugo Rondinone, Marinella Senatore, and John Wood and Paul Harrison. The display will be accompanied by a

‘This is my tenth year as curator of Frieze Sculpture. It’s been a wonderful decade of working with the Frieze teams, installation crews, galleries, and with a range of exceptional artists. Since 2012, Frieze Sculpture has gone from being a week-long display alongside the fair, to a substantial summer and now autumn exhibition for London. Each year I set out to make a show that serves one of the world’s leading art fairs, as well as those who might never before have considered looking at sculpture. No two Frieze Sculptures are the same but all are a paean to sculpture in the open air.’

Clare Lilley, Director of Yorkshire Sculpture Park

The 2022 display engages with a number of themes; works by Robert Indiana, John Giorno, John Wood and Paul Harrison, and Tim Etchells are structured as texts, conveying messages that merge poetry and political messages. The poetic-political plays out further in the work of Péju Alatise and Ro Robertson, whose gazes turn to female and non-binary healing in nature, and Shaikha al Mazrou, Beverly Pepper and Ida Ekblad create ambitious sculptures that are charged with the sensibility of women. The importance of coming together – as community and as a social voice – is conveyed in works by Marinella Senatore, Pablo Reinoso, and Ron Arad. Finally, as our world looks with uncertainty into the near future, works by Alicja Kwade, George Rickey, Emma Hart and NS Harsha conjure the universal and spiritual, whilst folklore and mythology are explored by Matthew Darbyshire and Jordy Kerwick.
