Pakistan @ The Frieze Art Fair 2015

The 13th edition of Frieze London closed on Saturday 17th October and according to the official press release, "the fair, which brought together 164 galleries from 27 countries, attracted a record number of collectors to the preview. Attendance across both fairs was higher this year at over 105,000, up from 100,000 in 2014". But interestingly, the main reason for the increase in number of attendees was due to "an uplift in visitors at Frieze Masters - the fair had nearly 50,000 visitors, up from 37,000 in 2014".

Regardless of the Contemporary and the Masters divide, London attracted a good representation from Pakistani art community for this year's Frieze Art Fair as well as the surrounding events.
