Art lovers rejoice! There’s plenty to gorge on this weekend in Los Angeles. Frieze LA, of course, is the headliner but there’s a stellar supporting cast of smaller art fairs and events around town that shouldn’t be missed:

Felix L.A, anchored at The Hollywood Roosevelt, is an art fair on a mission to create a more intimate experience with a return to the 90s hotel-fair format. Galleries, sculptures and installations are dotted throughout the hotel, including: an experiential film, “Reifying Desire 3”, by artist Jacolby Satterwhite; Kristen Morgin’s ceramics of Jennifer Aniston’s Used Book Sale; and potions, spells, and astrological readings by L and Astral Oracles. Be sure to hit up the cabana section, including LA-based galleries, Chateau Shatto, Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects, Grice Beach, Nicodim, Nonaka Hall and M+B
