Just as the select throng began to thin at Frieze Masters yesterday evening (9 October), dealers were enlivened by the arrival of Ed Miliband, the Labour Party leader, who found time to pop down from his nearby Dartmouth Park home. The galleries Miliband visited included Pace (D1), Lisson (E4, left) and Gmurzynska (B11). The night before keen Labour party supporter Anish Kapoor got the ultimate endorsement when the Labour leader turned up for a preview of his exhibition at Lisson Gallery in west London. Miliband stayed on for the dinner to celebrate 30 years of Kapoor’s association with the gallery.
