Frieze Foundation will curate and produce four new public art projects as part of the London 2012 Festival, the finale of the Cultural Olympiad. Situated throughout east London, the series will be known as Frieze Projects East.

The series has been programmed by Frieze Foundation curator Sarah McCrory. The projects will take place in the six east London Host Boroughs for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games: Barking & Dagenham, Greenwich, Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest.

The artists that will take part in Frieze Projects East include: Can Altay, Sarnath Banerjee, Anthea Hamilton & Nicholas Byrne, Gary Webb and Klaus Weber, as well as Ruth Ewan, the recipient of the CREATE art award.

Gary Webb’s sculptural works reference and draw on an array of disparate elements from material culture. Combining the forms and traditions of 20th-century sculpture with the synthetic materials and methods of the design industry, his works appear as idiosyncratic, nonsensical and playful propositions.

Webb’s commission for Frieze Projects East will see the construction of a permanent and interactive public sculpture that will be installed within a popular community park. Built from steamed wood, polished aluminum and cast resin, Webb’s piece will combine brightly coloured and large scale public sculpture with elements of modular playground equipment.

Gary Webb has a number of sculptures available through Other Criteria. See them online here.

Frieze Projects East has been commissioned by CREATE and The London 2012 Festival.

Frieze Foundation is a non-profit organisation established in 2003 and is responsible for the curated programme at Frieze Art Fair, comprising artist commissions, talks, films, music and education.
