Here at Regent’s Place we love exploring our neighbourhood. This summer why not take some time out to visit nearby Regent’s Park where the annual Frieze Sculpture presentation is on display in the beautiful English Gardens to early October? Showcasing 25 varied artworks by international artists, this outdoor display is free to view.

Keen to offer an insight into the diverse nature of contemporary sculpture, Frieze Sculpture’s curator, Clare Lilley, Director of Programmes at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, has aimed to showcase a series of artworks which explores a wide range of concepts and media by artists from different generations and backgrounds.

Reference is made to figures and the natural world through a range of figurative works including Barry Flanagan’s jubilant and joyous Large Nijinski on Anvil Point (2001), alongside Laura Ford’s playful and yet intriguing Dancing Clog Girls I-III (2015). Structural pieces include Holiday Home (Regent’s Park) by Richard Woods, a sculpture one third the size of an actual house, and Kimsooja’s 14-metre-high A Needle Woman : Galaxy was a Memory, Earth is a Souvenir, developed with Cornell University’s Council for the Arts as part of their 2014 Biennial.

In addition, new for this year is MTEC’s support of young galleries and emerging artists. Their specialist art handling teams are providing all installation and handling charges free of charge for two London based galleries - Hannah Barry Gallery, presenting Treadpans by James Cooper, and Copperfield Gallery, showing Larry Achiampong’s Pan American Flags for the Relic Travellers’ Alliance.
