Frieze Week in London is prime time for the city's museums and galleries to present their most ambitious shows of the year.

If you're in town for Frieze London and Frieze Masters, don't miss out on exploring the incredible cultural offerings taking place during the fair. At the Royal Academy, Europe's first Abstract Expressionism show in 50 years is on view, featuring an unprecedented loan from the Clyfford Still Museum. A stop by the Tate Modern is a must when in London, and right now, the museum is presenting two major exhibitions, Georgia O’Keefe and the commission Philippe Parreno: Any When. Other essential exhibitions include Picasso’s Portraits at National Portrait Gallery and William Kentridge: Thick Time at Whitechapel. If you're up for exploring London's East End, then Thursday, October 6, is the time for late viewings. More than 130 galleries and museums are open until 9 pm. Finally, the Frieze Sculpture Park features 20 iconic works by 20th-century masters and new commissions by contemporary artists. The free outdoor exhibition is located the heart of London in Regent’s park.
