Possibly the most anticipated art fair of the year, Frieze announced in May 2021 that they would open their fifth edition in Seoul, which is rapidly becoming the new hotbed of the global art market. Featuring over 100 galleries, it will take place alongside KIAF Seoul, South Korea’s first international art fair which will celebrate its twentieth anniversary this year. Like Frieze London, Frieze Seoul will also have a Frieze Masters section, as well as Focus Asia, a new feature showcasing young emerging Asian artists and galleries.

Art Basel Miami Beach
VIP – November 29-30, 2022
December 1-3, 2022

While December may seem very far away, Art Basel Miami is the important bookend of what will surely be an exciting fall art season. Running off the back of the November New York sales, Art Basel Miami 2021 drew much attention for its inclusion of NFT galleries as exhibitors, as well as a partnership with blockchain Tezos, where visitors were encouraged to mint their own NFT. In the aftermath of the cryptocurrency market crash and fall in the NFT market, it will be interesting to see how techno-friendly the fair is this year.

One of the biggest stories to hit the art world this year was the announcement of Art Basel’s new edition in Paris. Ousting prestigious French fair, FIAC, from its October slot at the Grand Palais, Paris +, signifies a major turn of events in the fair landscape. Including a Sites sector dedicated solely to artistic projects happening within the city, this newest Basel takeover is seen by many to signify the rise of Paris as a prominent market center in the wake of Brexit.
