Frieze Art Fair is one of the world’s most influential contemporary art fairs, with 173 of the world’s top galleries exhibiting over 1,000 artists. In 2010, over 60,000 visitors attended the fair. Travelling from all over the world they included major collectors, artists, international museum and gallery directors, media representatives and celebrities from the worlds of fashion, music and cinema. Deutsche Bank sponsored Frieze Art Fair for the seventh consecutive year. “We are delighted to be able to support an event that is so closely aligned with the bank's goals of supporting new and up-and-coming artists.' Pierre de Weck, a member of the Deutsche Bank AG’s Group Executive Committee and Chairman of the Deutsche Bank Global Art Advisory Council.
The success of Frieze Art Fair is largely due to the tremendous response this highly public-oriented fair enjoys each year in the British capital. Frieze Art Fair has developed from an ambitious newcomer project into one of the most important art events worldwide. During so-called "Frieze Week," London is transformed into a Mecca for art fans from around the world who can experience young art all around the city: at several parallel fairs, in museums, institutions, galleries, or in the public arena.
The event attracted interest and press coverage from all over the world including The Financial Times, Bloomberg and the Wall Street Journal.
