London’s largest outdoor exhibition, the Regent’s Park Frieze Sculpture 2017, kicked off yesterday and will run throughout the summer months, ending 8 October 2017. The exhibition brings together 23 new and significant works by 20th-century masters and leading contemporary artists from around the world.
Highlights include Thomas J Price’s (Hales) startling triple portraits of men of African origin; Reza Aramesh’s (Leila Heller Gallery) metamorphosis of mythical animal and subjected figure; and a six-metre-high ubiquitous toy-human figure by KAWS (pictured below).
