Supermodel Claudia Schiffer, hedge-fund manager Steve Cohen and others were at the London event. Bloomberg News reports that Dasha Zhukova, Roman Abramovich's art-loving girlfriend was also at the VIP Day. The event is Europe's biggest commercial event devoted to living artists with a total of $375 million worth of art on display. It isn't all Hirst-level expensive, the fair is also an opportunity to invest in younger artists with more reasonable prices.
The fair runs through October 17 at London's Regent Park and tickets are £25. Frieze has also launched a free iPhone and iPad app this autumn that includes an interactive map of the fair and 'Art Finder' a comprehensive search filter enabling visitors to navigate and browse the exhibited art works on their own terms by selecting specific media and size, as well as work priced under £5,000.
