Frieze has announced the list of exhibitors for the 2023 Los Angeles edition, scheduled for February next year at the Santa Monica Airport.
The 2023 edition is set to be the largest-ever Frieze Los Angeles event, with over 120 galleries from 22 countries participating in the fair. A major change this year has been the venue. The venue from last year – a space near the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills – was cited as unavailable for this year. Hence, the fair has moved to the Santa Monica Airport, a space both more extensive and more flexible for its customizations.
The largest-ever edition of Frieze LA was made possible after a series of huge investments in the art scene, including the launch of new East Coast galleries in the state why Architecture by Kulapat Yantrasast will return to design the main exhibition tent of the fair.
Most of the prestigious galleries in America are returning to Frieze LA. The names include Hauser & Wirth, Gagosian, Pace Gallery, and David Zwirner. Like always, the fair will have a special focus on local galleries, and about 30 galleries from Los Angeles would be featured. The Focus Section will feature 18 galleries from around the country that were founded in the last 12 years. Frieze Projects will feature site-specific installations and large-scale sculptures which could not be accommodated elsewhere.
François Ghebaly, one of the participating curators, said: “Frieze managed to create a one-week event where the art world stops in L.A. It’s instantly become the most important week in L.A. for us. The energy here is spread out, and ranges across many types of spaces and events. To channel all of this energy in one week is difficult.”
