We heard London calling this week as the annual Frieze Art Fair opened in Regent's Park. In our slideshow above, see pictures from the best events at the fair and around town, including an affair at the U.S. Ambassador's house and a Sotheby's preview party. Stateside, we stopped by the opening for Mike Bouchet's new hot-tub sculptures and Diet Cola paintings at Marlborough Chelsea, the launch party for the new Marcel Dzama-illustrated book Momo, and a one-night exhibition of glass work by David Sugar and Carol Iselin at ACA Galleries —which featured an appearance by none other than Maya Angelou.
