Frieze Art Fair
February 17-20, 2022
9900 Wilshire Boulevard, Beverly Hills
After a year’s hiatus due to the pandemic, Frieze Los Angeles will host over 100 participating galleries and a new public art section in a celebration of the creative spirit of the city. From February 17th through the 20th, at a new location, 9900 Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills, adjacent to The Beverly Hilton hotel, artists, curators, and guests will gather to view art from all over the world. Director of Frieze Los Angeles and Frieze New York, Christine Messineo along with Creative Director, Kulapat Yantrasast, and Landscape Director, Mark Thomann will bring together over 100 of the world’s leading galleries, such as Sadie Coles HQ, Paula Cooper, Gagosian, and Marian Goodman, in addition to several from LA, such as Blum & Poe, The Box, and Château Shatto.
Focus LA is a section of the fair that will spotlight eleven galleries aged fifteen years or less who will present solo or dual artist exhibitions. These galleries include Baert Gallery, Garden, Gattopardo, In Lieu, Luis De Jesus Los Angeles, Marta, Stanley’s, Stars, Bel Ami, Charlie James Gallery, and Parker Gallery.
Additionally, an expanded Frieze Week program of exhibitions and events across the city will begin on Monday, February 14 and run throughout the fair. Frieze Week will encompass a wide array of programming at galleries, museums, civic organizations, and other artist-driven spaces, celebrating and showcasing the many communities which make up LA’s dynamic art landscape.
Frieze and Maison Ruinart named Suzanne Husky as the artist selected for the thirst R.U.in.ART commission, an initiative started in 2019 which invites a West Coast artist to realize an immersive experience within the luxury champagne house’s Ruinart Art Bar at the fair. San Francisco-based artist and eco-activist Suzanne Husky will present a participatory installation titled Dam Beaverly Hills!, drawing attention to the role that the North American beaver could, once again, play in maintaining California’s landscape. The installation spotlights how dams built by beavers mitigate soil erosion, filter heavy metals, replenish water tables, maintain ecosystems for a variety of species, and hydrate soil in water depleted areas, making those areas more resistant to California’s wildfires. Husky identifies beavers as “California’s forgotten radical wild ally.” The installation will be activated through a series of live events during which Husky will draw attention to the history and importance of the beaver in California’s ecosystem. A contribution from the sale of every glass of Ruinart champagne at the fair will be donated to the Sonoma County-based Occidental Arts & Ecology Center’s ‘Bring Back the Beaver’ campaign.
