Frieze Music was established to develop the crossover between contemporary art and music. Frieze Music was originally created by Dan Fox, Senior Editor of frieze magazine, and Steve Mackey, producer and musician. Frieze Music’s varied programme has featured bands, avant-garde classical composer Karlheinz Stockhausen and pop series, such as that co-ordinated by Franz Ferdinand in 2004. Frieze Music has taken place during the week of the fair and attracted a wide audience.
Frieze Foundation is a non-profit organization established in 2003 and is responsible for the curated program at Frieze Art Fair, comprising artist commissions, talks, films, music and education. It’s funded by the European Commission’s Culture 2007 program and Arts Council England.
