Frieze Masters 2022

12th October, 2022 - 16th October, 2022

Main Section – Stand G02
The Regent’s Park, London

 

Prahlad Bubbar gallery is delighted to return to Frieze Masters London this year with our entire presentation selected for the ‘Stand Out’ section curated by Luke Syson, Director of The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge.

This year the gallery will present ‘Connective Threads: Historical Masterworks of Textile Design foregrounding 20th century abstraction’. The textiles we have chosen evoke an image of infinity as they function, essentially, as portals to divine realms, to gardens, and to paradise. The mental and emotional states these objects produce are closely aligned to those that accompany abstract works of the 20th century.

What brings these historic textiles close in their ethos to 20th century Abstraction is the transcendental role of design, mathematics, proportion and form; in other words, a spiritual reduction to that which is essential. The formal qualities that silently vibrate through the ‘arabesque’, for example, are the same that speak to us through the music or the silence of 20th century non-objective and minimalist art.

The selected textiles and objects for this presentation are about drawing and the line as they transcend their utilitarian function and transform into portable or wearable expressions of high art with layers of meaning and coded symbols.

 

Opening hours:
Wednesday 12 October: 11am – 7pm (invitation only)
Thursday Preview 13 October – Saturday 15 October: 11am – 7pm
