Frieze confirmed today that Los Angeles’ leading art fair is set to move to Santa Monica Airport in 2023. The new location has been selected for its additional space and flexibility, allowing Frieze Los Angeles to welcome innovative art and ideas across all forms of creativity. 

The fair will take place over multiple sites across the property, with a focus on a signature Frieze bespoke tent, built from the ground up and designed by Kulapat Yantrasast’s WHY alongside their Landscape Director Mark Thomann. Taking place from February 16-19, 2023, Frieze Los Angeles is supported by global lead partner Deutsche Bank, continuing a shared commitment to artistic excellence. 

Christine Messineo, Director of Americas for Frieze said: ‘Frieze Los Angeles’ new home offers us so much – the scale of the site allows for ambitious activations and collaborations with artists, galleries and non-profits. As a major destination the fair will extend its reach across the city and celebrate the creative communities of Los Angeles.’ 

Shannon Daut, Cultural Affairs Manager for Santa Monica added: ‘We are thrilled to be bringing such a venerated art event to our community and welcome the benefits it will provide to Santa Monica. We look forward to working with Frieze to connect the event to local artists and arts organizations, and to continue to leverage opportunities to expand the arts at both the Santa Monica Airport and beyond. We are proud to be a city that supports arts and culture.’ 

Frieze Los Angeles 2023 will host over 100 of the world’s leading galleries and feature the fair’s much-celebrated section Focus LA, alongside a dedicated edition of Frieze Viewing Room. 

Gallery applications for Frieze Los Angeles 2023 are now open and close on June 20, 2022
