Therme Art Program

FRIEZE ACADEMY

In 2017, Therme Group was proud to support Frieze Academy Art & Architecture Conference as its Associate Partner. The conference took place on October 2 at The Royal Institution, London. The one-day conference brought together a distinguished panel of experts to discuss the designing of spaces to show, make and live with art. Conference speakers included: Sir David Adjaye, Kirsty Bell, Sir David Chipperfield, Elizabeth Diller, Thomas Heatherwick, and Johann König, among others. At the conclusion of the conference, Therme Group hosted a reception where they launched their new arts initiative, the Therme Art Program. The curator of the Therme Art Program, Mikolaj Sekutowicz, and Sarah Wilson, Professor of Modern and Contemporary Art History at the Courtauld Institute of Art, presented the program’s mission and moderated a short conversation with participating artists AES+F and Egill Sæbjörnsson.

The Art & Architecture Conference is presented by Frieze Academy, a year-round program of talks and courses, organized by Frieze. The program features artists, collectors, curators, critics and academics sharing their experiences and discussing issues facing individuals, companies and organizations in the arts today.
