Food for Frieze

Cathy Lomax visits Frieze London and Frieze Masters and devises a visual feast

Every year when I visit Frieze London and Frieze Masters I start to curate my own mega exhibition, gathering work from galleries from across the globe, and including cutting edge contemporary artists with grand masters. But this game only works with a theme. The theme is not  preconceived - it is decided upon spontaneously, derived from the work that I see on display.

This year my theme was food. I can't pretend that this is the ultimate food exhibition curated from Frieze London and Frieze Masters 2018, because maybe I missed things (I always miss things at Frieze - a friend will say 'wow did you see the Diebenkorns?' and I'll have to admit that I didn't). So please feel free to suggest things that I may have missed.
