Deutsche Bank Sponsors Frieze Art Fair 2007
Bank is once again the main sponsor of this year's headline event for
art collectors and enthusiasts alike – the Frieze
Art Fair. Pierre de Weck, Member of the Group Executive Committee and
Global Head of Private Wealth
Management Deutsche Bank, comments: "As an extremely keen supporter of
the arts for many years, Deutsche Bank jumped at the opportunity to be
associated with Frieze Art Fair and has been a proud sponsor since 2004.
Since then, Frieze has emerged as one of the most exciting events of its
kind not just in London, but the world. With innovations such as last
year’s Deutsche Bank Education Space helping to further boost the event’s
popularity, we look forward to this year's fair more than ever."

in its fifth year, Frieze Art Fair is a showcase for cutting-edge
contemporary art from around the world. Last year 63,000 people visited
the Fair's specially designed marquee in London's Regent's
Park, where 152 galleries from 20 different countries displayed the
works of over 1000 artists.
There was more broadcast coverage than
ever in 2006. The Financial
Times reported: "Frieze is a phenomenon. It might call itself an
art fair but it has redefined the boundaries of the term... a showcase for
international dealers to present much of what is exciting and new in
contemporary art ...also a place where art is created and debated, where
people meet and where things happen." (Financial Times, 30th

2007 will also
see the continuation of the Deutsche Bank Education
Programme. It provides an opportunity for families and young people
from inner-city schools to participate in workshops and to visit the
Frieze Art Fair. A unique learning environment, thanks to the huge amount
of visual art from around the world on display, Frieze can inspire and
encourage new audiences.
Tickets for these events need to be booked
in advance on the Frieze
Art Fair website. A limited number of priority places for Deutsche
Bank staff and their children will be provided. Children aged 5 -12 can
join in but must be supervised by their parents.
Frieze will also
be producing a free mini guidebook for young people to use with their
parents during and following their visit. This will make the Fair even
more accessible to families and children.
This year's Fair takes
place in London's Regent's Park from 11-14 October.
