This week Frieze Art Fair is about to begin with the 16th instalment of international art in London. The organisers have revealed a fresh line-up of 160 participating galleries and a new theme of ‘Social Work’.
Social Work builds on last year’s rousing topic of Sex Work. Coinciding with the centenary of women’s suffrage in the United Kingdom, it aims to highlight women artists of the 1980s who dared to confront the male-governed creative landscape, and began to imagine and forge a more fruitful future for their work.
We are excited to introduce Cordelia Noe, founder of TheArtGorgeous,a media company and agency focusing on the art world. Their biannual art magazineoffers a glimpse into the creative minds and style of some of the art world’s most inspiring women, ranging from artists, advisors to art patrons, curators and collectors and aims to make the art world accessible – by a humorous yet smart approach.
Cordelia lived and worked many years in Hong Kong and Beijing, where she founded TheArtGorgeous and kicked off “ART x LUX” – a conference focusing on the business of creative collaborations.
Glad to catch her before departing for London and getting an idea of her busy schedule as well as of the Must Do’s in London this week:
