A frenzy of art for Frieze Week Los Angeles

From February 15th to 20th, 2023, Los Angeles welcomed the fourth edition of the prestigious art fair Frieze with more than 120 exhibitors from 22 different countries.

Since the arrival of Frieze in 2018, the city has seen an influx of galleries, and the art scene is booming. We had the chance to visit  the fairs happening during what is referred to as “Frieze week” and here are some highlights. 

Frieze Los Angeles

Located at the Santa Monica Airport, the art fair attracts the best galleries with established artists and rising stars. The visitors included many celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Lionel Richie, Heidi Klum, Christopher Waltz, Owen Wilson and the public dressed up for the occasion.

Spring / Break Art Show

This year marks the fair’s fourth edition in Los Angeles and the second year at Skylight Culver City. Founded and curated by Ambre Kelly and Andrew Gori, the fair is known to encourage eccentricity. The result is a combination of booths, each unique in their presentation and style.

Los Angeles Art Show

The LA Art Show, the LA longest-running art fair, held its 28th edition at the Los Angeles Convention Center with over 120 galleries. 

The fair showcased some well known artists such as Richard Orlinski or Carole Feuerman’s hyper-realistic sculptures represented by the French owned and Miami based gallery Markowicz Fine Art. Visitors could also enjoy artwork by actor Val Kilmer at Fabrik Projects alongside some emerging artists.

If you missed the fair in person, the LA Art Show continues on Artsy through March 5th.

Felix Art Fair

The fifth edition of Felix Art Fair took place at The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel with an international roster of 60+ galleries occupying both the poolside cabanas and two Tower floors with two galleries from Paris the Sultana Gallery and the Fitzpatrick Gallery.

Founded five years ago by collector Dean Valentine and dealers Al and Mills Morán, Felix L.A. has gained a reputation for being a more relaxed and intimate fair than Frieze L.A., which runs at the same time.
