Frieze London and Frieze Masters is the latest event to be canceled in the art world as a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The news comes after Frieze New York announced that it would be refunding nearly 200 planned exhibitors and would instead host online viewing rooms rather than a physical fair. Much like New York’s art fair, Frieze London and Frieze Masters will now be taking place online.

Frieze’s usual showcase of international gallerists specializing in contemporary artworks and pre-21st-century art had been scheduled to run from October 8 to October 11, 2020, in London’s Regent’s Park. The week would usually bring thousands to the U.K.’s capital to attend the fairs, as well as other shows, museum exhibitions and auctions around the city.

The Frieze Viewing Room is set to commence online on the same dates as the fair would have taken place. More information about what will be exhibited on which day will come soon. Stay tuned to HYPEBEAST for updates.

In other news, Banksy has tagged a London Underground tube train to encourage the public to wear a facemask.
