This morning, Frieze revealed the full list of artists, galleries, and curators participating in 2016’s Frieze London, Frieze Projects, and Frieze Masters fairs, all set to take place October 6 through 9.

In its 14th edition, Frieze London will host more than 160 galleries from 30 countries worldwide. It will also contain a new gallery section called “The 90s,” curated by Nicolas Trembley, in which influential exhibitions from the title decade will be restaged. As usual, the event will be accompanied by several new projects, commissions, and installations. James Turrell will present a new light installation, while Philippe Parreno will unveil a new sculpture created in conjunction with his Tate Modern commission. For Frieze Projects, also in its 14th year, the LUMA Foundation is commissioning works from Coco Fusco, Martin Soto Climent, Julie Verhoeven, Samson Young, Sibylle Berg and Claus Richter, and Frieze Artist Award-winner Yuri Pattison. A full list of participants for Frieze London can be found here.

Frieze Masters, which focuses on “art and antiquities from the ancient era to Old Masters to the late 20th century,” will bring together 134 galleries from around the world. Programming highlights will include solo presentations of work by Anni Albers, Lynn Chadwick, Paula Rego and Susan Rothenberg and public discussions involving artists Lynette Yiadom-Boakye and Carroll Dunham, critic Alistair Sooke, and Sheena Wagstaff, head of the Metropolitan Museum’s new modern and contemporary art department.
