3rd October 2016
Frieze Masters will be opening its doors on 6th October and will bring together several thousand years of art from 130 of the world’s leading galleries in a unique, contemporary context.
This will be the first time we have exhibited outside our home in Davies Street since we opened two years ago and are looking forward to meeting old friends and making new acquaintances.
At Frieze Masters we will be unveiling our star exhibit, this magnificent bronze Cretan helmet with its mysterious crest, perhaps designed to incite terror on the battlefield. Our founder Baron Lorne Thyssen-Bornemisza, reveals that the helmet is one of only two known examples of its type. The other, in Hamburg’s Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe (Museum of Arts and Crafts), is less intact than our example, and it does not have any of the narrative scenes that make this helmet so exceptional.
These narrative drawings represent some of the earliest known Cretan mythological scenes and offer fascinating insight into the myth tradition in Archaic Crete.
You can see this wonderful item and our other exhibits on Stand B5 at Frieze Masters. Download the map to find us.
Frieze Masters will be open from 11am – 7pm from Thursday 6th October until Saturday 8th October and from 11.00am until 6.00pm on Sunday 9th October. A one-day ticket is priced at £37.65 with discounts for students and children. You can make further savings if you subscribe for a pass for all days.
