The artists commissioned to create these eight site-specific works for Frieze Art Fair were: Bik Van der Pol, Pierre Huyghe, Christian Jankowski, Oliver Laric, LuckyPDF, Peles Empire, Laure Prouvost and Cara Tolmie.
The Sculpture Park offers a rare opportunity to see a significant group of international work that is addressed on a public scale. Presented in the wonderful setting of the English Gardens of Regent's Park, the Sculpture Park is ljust east of the entrance to the fair. Entry to the Sculpture Park was an opportunity for all to see work by some of the most interesting artists working today.
This year's Sculpture Park presented work by a broad selection of artists, including new works by Hans Peter Feldman and Ceal Floyer, as well as pieces by Marie Lund and Franz West.
The Outset /Frieze Art Fair Fund, now in its 9th year, enables Tate to acquire works by emerging and leading international artists from London's Frieze Art Fair. This year the £150,000 made available by the Fund is the highest ever.
