Curator of Frieze Sculpture 2023

Heralding a new vision for art in the public realm for Frieze London’s 20th anniversary

Fatos Üstek is the new curator of Frieze Sculpture, a major annual public art exhibition that places monumental works by leading artists throughout London’s The Regent’s Park. Taking place 20 September to 29 October 2023, Frieze Sculpture will coincide with Frieze London and Frieze Masters, 11 to 15 October 2023, which together will celebrate the creative spirit of the city.

Eva Langret, Director of Frieze London commented: ‘We are thrilled to announce Fatos as the next curator of Frieze Sculpture. The exhibition is beloved by so many, and Fatos, who has extensive experience working with art in the public realm, could not be more well placed to take the initiative forward. With next year marking Frieze London’s 20th anniversary we are looking forward to a special programme of projects and collaborations, amongst which Frieze Sculpture will be a major highlight.’

Fatos Üstek added: ‘Encountering art in the public realm gives us an experience like no other. At its best, it can astonish, inspire awe, and create collective wonder. We’re in an age where our society spends most of its time in a digital world, but that world does not speak to us in the same way. I’m hugely excited about joining Frieze and working with a wide array of artists and galleries to expand the conception, implementation and reception of sculpture in the public realm.’
