The First Frieze Los Angeles

More than 70 invited galleries will take part in the first Frieze Los Angeles – including a special selection of emerging spaces from the city – presenting a global cross-section of today’s most significant and exciting artists and creating an exceptional opportunity for collecting and discovery. Hosted at Paramount Pictures Studios in Hollywood from February 14 through February 17, Frieze Los Angeles will join Frieze New York, Frieze London and Frieze Masters at the forefront of the international art fair calendar, celebrating Los Angeles’ position as a global arts center and destination.

The curated program will celebrate the unique creative spirit of Los Angeles. Artist projects will transform the movie set backlot of Paramount Pictures Studios into a symbolic cityscape where art is at the center of civic life.
