The Art Fund’s latest app, Frieze Sculpture Guide, is a must-have for visitors to this year’s Sculpture Park, which exhibits both established and emerging artists represented in Frieze London. The app, which is free to all and available from 15 October, is the perfect companion guide to the park’s collection of more than 20 sculptures, resonating with the Art Fund’s vision of sharing art collections with as wide an audience as possible.
Visitors will find their journey through the park greatly enhanced through the app’s information on each of the works as well as audio guide segments, voiced by Clare Lilley, Director of Programme at Yorkshire Sculpture Park. It is the ideal portable guide for those visiting the Sculpture Park, which is free to the public. Visitors can use the interactive map to find and select individual sculptures or use the index of sculpture panel codes to quickly access information on what is the largest presentation to date of sculpture outdoors at Frieze.
Clare Lilley selected the works this year, drawing from galleries represented in both Frieze London and Frieze Masters. Her selection brings together unexpected correspondences between the old and new, ranging from an 11th-century stone Taifa lion to Amar Kanwar’s recently completed Listening Bench. The selection includes more than 20 works by artists including Oscar Murillo, Jaume Plensa, Yinka Shonibare MBE, Helen Chadwick and Rachel Whiteread.
Clare Lilley, Director of Programme at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, said: “The Frieze Sculpture Park is unique in being able to display works in a very beautiful mature parkland, giving collectors and the public a wonderful snapshot of outdoor sculpture in a superb environment. The Art Fund app is especially welcome and is a fantastic development in helping people journey through this large garden and in understanding more about the artists and ideas behind the sculptures. This year sees a more diverse range of work than ever before and I aim to give a whistle-stop tour of sculpture from the medieval period to the 1960s and 1970s, right through to work made in 2013.”
Art Fund supports the public tours programme at Frieze London and Frieze Masters
This is the fifth year that the Art Fund is supporting public tours at Frieze London and Frieze Masters (the latter now in its second year) but this is the first time that an app has been produced as part of the partnership. The tours provide an excellent introduction, particularly for first-time Frieze Art Fair visitors. Led by professional guides, the tours provide an overview of the fair, present a selection of highlights and give more background on specially commissioned Frieze Projects.
Located in the beautiful English Gardens, the Sculpture Park is located a short walk from Frieze London and Frieze Masters.
