Frieze Los Angeles largely focuses on contemporary art and celebrates the exceptionally dynamic culture of Los Angeles and its global contributions to the visual arts. Frieze Los Angeles 2023 will feature more than 120 galleries from 22 countries around the world, debuting in the new location of the Santa Monica Airport. The fair will happen over multiple sites across the airfield and is once again designed by Kulapat Yantrasast’s WHY studio. Led by Christine Messineo, Frieze’s Director of Americas, Frieze Los Angeles will include major world-leading galleries, alongside some of the US’s most exciting emerging spaces. 

The new location of the fair will allow for an expanded footprint and a wider selection of galleries and collaborations with non-profit organisations, as well as a series of new ambitious activations, and pop-ups from some of Los Angeles’ most beloved restaurants. Together with galleries showing the world’s most exciting contemporary art, the fair introduces exhibitors with a specialism in the 20th century, particularly those showing work by artists who may have been previously overlooked. The Focus section of the fair, dedicated to galleries aged 12 years and younger, will be curated for the second year by Amanda Hunt, (Walker Art Center, Minneapolis) alongside new Associate Curator Sonya Tamaddon, and have a broader remit, welcoming participants from across the US.
