- One of the most influential and pioneering entrepreneurs in arts and culture talks to Creative Entrepreneurs about how he created a global art world sensation.
Matthew Slotover, Co-Founder of Frieze, is one of the most influential and pioneering entrepreneurs in this sphere. Starting Frieze in 1991 as a humble arts & culture ‘fanzine,’ he and co-founder Amanda Sharp have transformed it into the world’s most influential contemporary art brand.
Frieze is now home to (i) four publications: frieze magazine, frieze d/e, Frieze Masters Magazine and Frieze Week; (ii) three international art fairs: Frieze London, Frieze New York and Frieze Masters; (iii) Frieze Academy, a programme of talks and courses, and (iv) frieze.com, the definitive resource for contemporary art & culture.
We learned how Matthew grew Frieze from just an idea into a global publishing brand and disrupted the art market, building Frieze Art Fairs into some of the most anticipated events in the global cultural calendar.
