The Getty & Art for Justice
Kicking-off on February 10, 2020, a program hosted by The Getty featuring the Art for Justice Fund will mark the official start of Frieze Week Los Angeles. This event will extend the collaboration between Frieze, Endeavor and the Art for Justice Fund that arose from the sale of Mark Bradford’s limited-edition artwork Life Size in 2019. Alongside further initiatives, events, and awards, this collaboration represents Frieze Los Angeles' dedication to supporting social justice and civic engagement through art patronage.
