With a whopping 164 galleries from 27 countries presenting works by some of today's most compelling artists, Frieze London is every art-lover's go-to event for this week.

The 13th installation of Frieze London 2015 kicked off yesterday in the Regent's Park, bringing together a melting pot of international artists, dealers and art lovers to one venue. Running until 17th October, the art fair invites the creative community to view, browse and acquire contemporary art from all around the globe.

Director Victoria Siddall said: "The great response to the redesigned Frieze London last year has attracted an exceptional list of galleries for 2015 and I am thrilled to announced what I believe will be a really strong fair. Once again, both established and young galleries are planning special presentations of mainly new work so Frieze London will be a place to see art of the highest quality and discover emerging artists from all over the world."

This year's highlights include a variety of renowned galleries such as Chiem & Read from New York, Galerie Kamel Mennour from Paris, and Simon Lee Gallery from London, while "Focus" exhibits artworks from young galleries and emerging artists. The other facets of contemporary art also come alive in "Live" which showcases participatory and immersive performance installations. Additionally, "The Frieze Projects" programme continues to show new works commissioned exclusively for the fair. Meanwhile, the Frieze Sculpture Park landscapes the English Gardens with some 16 new and historical works alongside exceptional sculptures and installations by international artists in the outdoors.
