Together with the global Frieze team, Christine will deliver an ambitious program across the US fairs that builds on Frieze’s commitment to celebrate each city’s unique art communities. Frieze Los Angeles and Frieze New York will bring together galleries, institutions, artists, and organizations to encourage and increase the possibilities of arts discovery and patronage.

In 2022 Frieze Los Angeles will take place in a new location at 9900 Wilshire Boulevard, Beverly Hills (February 17-20) and Frieze New York will return to The Shed, Manhattan (May 18-22).

I am thrilled to join Frieze and lead its effort in presenting successful, compelling art fairs in Los Angeles and New York. As a former exhibitor, I understand the commercial, educational and creative dynamics that make Frieze a unique place for discovery. I’m excited to embark on this venture in both cities, places I love and have called home. – Christine Messineo
