The week in pictures

As ‘The Official Champagne Sponsor’ of Frieze London and Frieze Masters 2017, both of which run from 5-8 October in Regent’s Park, Ruinart has installed a branded Champagne Bar at Frieze London, while Frieze Masters will feature Ruinart trolleys providing visitors with a selection of its blanc de blancs and rosé Champagnes.

Visitors to the contemporary art fair can see the work of Kiluanji Kia Henda, who won the Frieze Artist Award for his project called Under the Silent Eye of Lenin, which considers the connections between witchcraft, the Angolan Civil War, and Angola’s relationship to the former USSR. Communications director at Moët Hennessy UK, Lorraine Larmer, looks on.

On the other side of the park, the Frieze Masters contains artworks from any period up until the end of the last century, including this piece by Tony Cragg called Palette, which was completed in 1984 using pieces of rubbish.

And, in sharp contrast, this Egyptian calcite dish from the Second Dynasty (2793-2647 BC).
