A huge pineapple by Rose Wylie welcomes you to this year's Frieze Sculpture in Regent's Park. Curated for the ninth year by Clare Lilley (Director of the Yorkshire Sculputure Park) it is on until the end of next month and is a wonderful chance to see some exceptional sculpture in the open air by leading artists from around the world Free to all, the trail (clearly marked on boards) includes eighteen sculptures (two of those will only be displayed in actual Frieze Week, 13-17 October) and is the perfect autumn family excursion – joyous, fun, colourful, vibrant and uplifting,
There's loads to engage everyone – when we were there very young children were having the time of their lives running in and out of Jose Pedro Croft's painted and iron and coloured glass structure [no.11 on trail] and spinning around the inside of Carlos Cruz-Diez's 'Environment de Transchromie Circulaire' [No.7 on trail], while others couldn't resist balancing on Isamu Noguchi's bright red 'Play Sculpture' [no.13 on the trail].
This year's global sculpture selection addresses themes that include environmental concerns amongst others. To learn about the individual sculptures and artists, we highly recommend listening to Claire Lilley's audioguide on the Frieze website here
But most of all go, soak it up and have fun in the autumn sunshire!
