Instagrams of the Art World: Frieze London Frenzy Edition (Plus Beyonce at the Louvre)

All eyes (and instagrams) were on London this week with a flurry of activity surrounding Frieze. First up, here’s Oscar Murillo chomping down on one of Wangechi Mutu’s (mutustudio) chocolate mermaids at Victoria Miro. (Read Scott Indrisek’s blog post for more details.)


And here’s the artist herself with none other than Grace Jones, courtesy Harper’s Bazaar UK (bazaaruk).

Capucine Milliot (capucinemilliot) of Christie’s got her nails done at Korakrit Arunanondchai’s Carlos/Ishikawa booth.

Auctioneer Simon de Pury (simondepury) snapped this portrait of A$AP Rocky.

KAWS (kaws) captured this furry visitor to his giant piece in the Frieze Sculpture Park.

Studio Museum head Thelma Golden (thelmagolden) took this group portrait of artist William Kentridge, Venice Biennale curator Okwui Enwezor, artist Julie Mehretu, and New Museum curator Massimiliano Gioni at the opening of Marian Goodman’s new London space.

Half Gallery’s (halfgallery) Bill Powers caught his hubby Cynthia Rowley matching a painting at the Tate Modern.

The Helly Nahmad booth, in which he created a collector’s imaginary Paris apartment circa 1968 was a big hit on Instagram. Here’s a look from the Guggenheim digital marketing manager Jia Jia Fei (vajiajia).

Jack Shainman Gallery (jackshainmanny) caught artists El Anatsui and Kay Hassan relaxing during install.

Here are Performa head Rosalee Goldberg, artist Tracey Emin , and dealer Rachel Lehmann, via Performa’s feed (performanyc).

Artist Hank Willis Thomas (hankwillisthomas) was clowning around with artist Theaster Gates at Booty Wine. We’re guessing that wasn’t a stop on the Frieze itinerary.

And this week we will leave you in Paris, where Beyonce (beyonce) took a private tour of the Louvre and spent some quality time with ol’ Mona.
