Frieze: the show goes on. Plus, Theaster Gates

It’s Frieze Week in London, yet there’s no big art fair at its heart. Can galleries create the usual excitement—and is anyone still buying?

The Week in Art

From breaking news and insider insights to exhibitions and events around the world, the team at The Art Newspaper picks apart the art world’s big stories with the help of special guests. An award-winning podcast hosted by Ben Luke, The Week in Art is sponsored by Christie’s.

While there’s no Frieze London or Frieze Masters there are plenty of exhibitions and events being staged across the city, the now customary online viewing rooms and digital sales platforms, and a big New York auction. We talk to The Art Newspaper's contemporary art correspondent Louisa Buck about the art around town and to our editor-at-large and Financial Times columnist Melanie Gerlis about how the market is faring without the fairs.

Plus, our New York correspondent Linda Yablonsky talks to Theaster Gates about his shows at Gagosian in New York (10 October-19 December) and White Cube in London (online until 16 October, and at the Bermondsey gallery on 16 October).

The Week in Art podcast by The Art Newspaper is available every Friday on our website and all the usual places where you find podcasts. This podcast is sponsored by Christie's.
