Frieze founders appoint new director

In a surprise move, Frieze art fair has announced the appointment of Victoria Siddall as director of Frieze London and Frieze New York. The fair's co-founders and current directors, Amanda Sharp and Matthew Slotover, say it will give them more time to focus on the future and explore new projects for Frieze.

In an interview with The Financial Times, Slotover said the new projects he and Sharp have in mind do not include opening another fair. "It's not clear there are obvious opportunties elsewhere," he said. But he added, "Never say never."
