Frieze Top Ten 2011

After seeing two different fairs, around 25 shows and some online art TV these are my highlights of Frieze 2011

1 LuckyPDF for Frieze Projects (a still of me karaoking away in Takeshi Shiomitsu's project above on day 2). Felt so fresh when you were there watching it happen, not like a fair at all.

2 Oliver Laric and On Value at Seventeen gallery

3 Structure and Absence at White Cube Bermondsey Street (esp for brilliant essay by Craig Burnett that accompanied it)

4 Marlene Dumas at Frith Street Gallery

5 Phyllida Barlow at Hauser and Wirth Piccadilly (not strictly a Frieze opening but saw it that weekend and damn it was good)

6 Josephine Meckseper at Timothy Taylor Gallery

7 Des Hughes 'Angry Pins' at the Frieze Sculpture Garden

8 Adam Helms at Marianne Boesky's booth at Frieze

9 Sunday Fair - especially Christian Jankowski at Proyectos Monclova and Bianca Brunner at Boltelang

10 Raphael Zarka at Bishoff Weiss

And my prize for best booth goes to Ibid Projects booth at Frieze who ripped out the entire interior of their old gallery and rebuilt it in the fair!
