As part of the fair's curated program, the backlot at Paramount Pictures Studios will play host to local creative enterprises, offering a taste of artist initiatives across LA and accessible ways of supporting them.
Frieze Los Angeles has invited some of the city's most forward-thinking non-profit spaces and grassroot organizzations to participate in the fair, with pop-up stalls and stores along the streets of Paramount's New York filmset. Featuring inspiring pop-ups from Artists for Democracy, A-Z West, grantLOVE and many more.
This artist-driven street fair takes place alongside Frieze Projects' installations, performances, Talks and Fim screenings throughout the backlot, offering fair visitors the opportunity to experience a city with art at its core.
