For the fifth year, Frieze returns to Los Angeles landing at the Santa Monica airport with expanded public spaces and more. Presented by Deutsche Bank, the fair opens February 29 through March 3, year’s featuring over 95 exhibitors from 21 countries, with nearly 50 percent of the fair dedicated to galleries operating in the Greater Los Angeles region. “Frieze Los Angeles 2024 will be a destination for an international audience, coming together to celebrate the continued growth of the Los Angeles art scene,” says Christine Messineo, Frieze’s Director of Americas. “Both visitors and exhibitors will benefit from our expanded footprint, centralized layout and redesigned exterior spaces. We look forward to welcoming galleries from around the globe (including leading art spaces across Asia, Africa, Europe, and South America), from Korea to Mexico, Japan to Germany, alongside a strong core of exhibitors from across California, to provide an unparalleled snapshot of today’s most compelling artists and galleries.”

Unique to other art fairs, the fair will stretch across the campus under a reimagined plan that includes an exclusive structure designed by Kulapat Yantrasast’s architectural studio WHY, and lush outdoor space designed to be a central gathering point. “After several years in this creative city, Frieze Los Angeles has become an anchor for all creative minds,” says Yantrasast. “The layout for 2024 is streamlined and efficient but designed with good sight lines and discoveries at every corner. Inside is a focused art experience with uplifting filtered natural light while the outside courtyard is full of art and cultural activities for friends to linger and connect.”

One of the most unique highlights of the fair is the annual Frieze Los Angeles Impact prize that awards a local artist with a solo exhibit and $25,000. This year’s recipient is textile artist Gary Tyler, a former death row prisoner who transformed his life through art by working with the Center for Art and Advocacy’s Right of Return fellowship program. “The Center is incredibly proud to partner with Frieze on selecting one of our Right of Return Fellows for the Frieze Los Angeles Impact Prize,” says founder Jesse Krimes. “Gary Tyler, this year’s winner, has a profound practice tackling healing, injustice and racial equity. His masterful quilting technique will be on full display at the fair, showcasing new textile work that I’m sure will inspire all.”
