Our Frieze Week in Pictures (And a Few Words) by Corrina Eastwood

So as you may have grown to expect, we had a ball this Frieze week! We know that the Frieze Fair itself can feel a bit out of reach and out of touch for a lot of artists. Even though Char and I managed to get ourselves onto the VIP opening night guest list, its still an event that can feel elitist and unwelcoming for some. Thats why there are organisations like us of course, and it would be positively rude of us to not take advantage of the free champaign on offer, now wouldn’t it?!

This year we had a lot of fun and the whole fair felt to have quite a playful vibe. We enjoyed crawling around in this for some time, sloshing our booze everywhere, although we never quite worked out what it actually was!

We particularly enjoyed live drawing by Ken Kagami who was drawing visitors genitals in 30 seconds a go! Amazing…

….and he was clearly psychic when it came to drawing Char and I and our best features!

We also checked out some other great shows in the week including the Bill Viola and Kishio Suga opening…

A bit of multi tasking as Jerome also takes the time to discuss plans for our next show Don’t Look Now.

…and Jade caught the Frank Bowling show at the Hales Gallery in Shoreditch…

I also had an awesome time at The Other Art Fair and the Monika Art Fair which both take place at the Truman Brewery. As always the opening night was great fun and I was lucky enough to be asked to attend the press preview and take an early appointment to visit the Green Room, an exciting part of the fair showcasing the work of Sweet ‘Art artist Rebecca Mason. Rebecca is a friend of Sweet ‘Art and showed some of her awesome neon works in our fashion week show Seams.

Check out some pics I took of the Green Room after some tasty absinth and a risky confession, very surreal!
