LONDON — Visitors to Frieze have an embarrassment of other attractions to choose from in London. All they need to do is step off the fairgrounds in Regent’s Park and roam the capital’s many museums and galleries. Here is a selection of exhibitions taking place during Frieze week.
The Romanian contemporary artist Adrian Ghenie is a darling of the art market, with some of his pieces selling for millions of dollars. His works can recall the rawness and viscerality of Francis Bacon, yet he paints in a much brighter palette. The Thaddaeus Ropac gallery in London is opening a solo show of his paintings and drawings — reflections on the impact of the digital age on the human body and mind. Besides exhibiting his self-portraits, Mr. Ghenie will also explore Marilyn Monroe, twisting and blurring the movie star’s features in an examination of reality and artifice.
