Each participating gallery will benefit from a fully equipped space, a private viewing room and a range of media, digital and social media services over four-week residencies.

Eva Langret, artistic director, Frieze London, said: “Over the past 12 months we have learnt that the experience of seeing art is irreplaceable, as are the human connections that are so crucial to its appreciation.

“We are always looking for new ways to support our community of galleries, and so No 9 Cork Street is a natural response to the challenges brought about by the pandemic.”

Frieze said it welcomes “proposals from commercial art galleries or ventures that show a regular programme of exhibitions, with reduced participation fees available for young galleries”.

The first round of applications is now open for projects between October 2021 and July 2022.

Applicants must be a commercial venture and show a regular programme of exhibitions.

Frieze said it would prioritise proposals from galleries who have recently taken part in Frieze London, Frieze Masters, Frieze New York or Frieze Los Angeles.
