The Frieze Art Fair -- conceived by Amanda Sharp and Matthew Slotover -- opens today in London for its tenth showcase of new art from 175 of the world's top contemporary galleries. The Vernissage preview was well-attended and the mood upbeat while the works on view were almost entirely primary market and many were never-before-seen.
