The Highly Anticipated Frieze Los Angeles 2023 To Take Place At The Santa Monica Airport- February 16–19th

In its first time at Santa Monica Airport, the fair expands to feature more than 120 galleries, including new specialists in 20th-century art, alongside restaurants and Frieze Projects spread across the multiple sites.

With more than 120 galleries from 22 countries set to participate, this will be the largest Frieze Los Angeles edition to date.

The fair will take place over multiple sites across the airport, including the Barker Hangar and the outdoor space near the airfield, with the exhibition tent designed again by Kulapat Yantrasast's Why Architecture.

The fair last year was held in a tent next to the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills under the direction of the newly appointed director for Frieze's two U.S. fairs, Christine Messineo. Messineo told the Los Angeles Times that the Beverly Hilton location was not available for 2023, and the organization chose the airport for its capacity and flexibility.

The returning galleries include Gagosian, Hauser & Wirth, David Zwirner, Pace Gallery, Gladstone, Thaddaeus Ropac, Marian Goodman, Almine Rech, Sadie Coles HQ, and James Fuentes. The fair once again has a strong emphasis on local participation, with some 30 galleries based in L.A., including veteran participants Blum & Poe, Commonwealth and Council, David Kordansky Gallery, Night Gallery, Regen Projects, and Various Small Fires.

The Focus section of the fair, located in the Barker Hangar, will feature 18 galleries from across the U.S. that were founded 12 years and younger. The Walker Art Center's Amanda Hunt will curate the Focus area for the second year, this time joined by new associate curator Sonya Tamaddon. Frieze Projects-the section of the fair devoted to curated site-specific installations and large-scale sculptures-will be overseen by the nonprofit Art Production Fund and Jay Ezra Nayssan, founder and director of Del Vaz Projects.

The super-sized edition of Frieze follows a period of intense investment in Los Angeles' art market, with a host of East Coast galleries set to inaugurate outposts in Southern California in 2023-a groundswell of interest some dealers credit to the fair itself.

"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," François Ghebaly, whose gallery opened in 2009, told ARTnews. "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."
