Frieze has unveiled an impressive line-up of international dealers for the inaugural outing of Frieze Masters, which is due to coincide with the tenth edition of the contemporary fair in London (11-14 October).

The diverse roster comprises an assortment of Old Master connoisseurs, Oceanic art dealers, experts in Indian miniatures, a rug specialist, as well as a sizeable chunk of modern art dealers.

In total, 98 galleries have signed up for the “historic-to-modern” fair, with 75 dealers scheduled to show in the main section of the fair and 22 in “Spotlight”, which is dedicated to solo presentations of works by 20th-century artists (there is one crossover, Galerie Hubert Winter from Vienna).

The new fair looks likely to prove a competitor to Tefaf Maastricht, the Dutch stalwart event which celebrated its 25th edition in March. Frieze Masters has attracted 35 Tefaf regulars including Jean-Luc Baroni, Bernheimer, Moretti Fine Art, Sam Fogg and Ben Janssens—who is the Chairman Antiquairs of Tefaf.

“The fairs take very different approaches—we want to offer a contemporary perspective on historical art so we will hopefully be able to offer the galleries something distinct, and a new audience,” says Victoria Siddall, the director of Frieze Masters. “Galleries do a lot of fairs these days, it’s an important part of their business. Luckily Tefaf is at the opposite end of the year so it’s the perfect timing for galleries who want to do both.”

Siddall has worked with Frieze for seven years, and was previously Christie’s head of proposals. Gallerists including Anthony Meier, Hauser & Wirth, Thomas Gibson and Fabrizio Moretti are on the selection committee. The fair will take place in Regents Park, in a specially designed construction by the architect Annabelle Selldorf.

“The idea was to do something quite boutique and focused, and really show the best of these different fields throughout history,” says Siddall. “We’re thrilled that so many great galleries have come out in support of the fair in its first year because it reinforces the idea that London needs a great international fair like this.”
