LONDON — With nine fairs, seven auctions, and more than 150 selling exhibitions in galleries, London’s “Frieze Week,” which starts Monday, is a hectic seven days in the art world. So many events jostle for attention, that it can be difficult for visiting collectors to decide where to spend their time, not to mention their money.
Talks on Collecting “in conversations”
Frieze Art Fair 2014, London
Features Suzanne Deal Booth, American collector
Thursday, 16 October
9:30 – 11am
Talks on Collecting are ‘in-conversations’ between eminent collectors and Louisa Buck, writer, broadcaster and correspondent for The Art Newspaper, taking place over breakfast in the VIP Room at Frieze London. This programme offers unique insight into what drives the world’s most active collectors, providing inspiration to established and emerging collectors alike. The casual setting encourages the sharing of stories, art world anecdotes, and great questions from the audience.

Two years ago this Saturday, James Turrell’s “Twilight Epiphany” Skyspace (aka The Suzanne Deal Booth Centennial Pavilion) opened to the public. Since then, more than 75,000 people have visited the work of art that has become one of the most photographed attractions on campus and a popular recommendation for tourists.
“It’s a star and people are drawn to it,” said Rice Public Art Director Molly Hubbard. “It’s so picturesque.”
