Frieze is making its annual return to The Big Smoke next month. A welcome injection of energy, art, and people that follows the typically sleepier months of the late summer. We’re looking forward to seeing what some of our favourite galleries have in store for this Frieze edition, October 11-15th 2023. Here’s our round up of galleries, artists, and general art happenings Hang-Up has on its radar!

In its formative years, Xavier Hufkens Gallery played a pivotal role in introducing Brussels to some of the most influential contemporary artists, such as Antony Gormley and Felix Gonzalez-Torres.
