L.A.’s Frieze festival lineup has just been announced, and it’s officially a 2022 must-see exhibition.
Following two years of pandemic-induced dormancy, the popular art festival Los Angeles Frieze is making an electrifying comeback in L.A. Adding to the current art boom, this acclaimed fair will bring top established and emerging artists to the West Coast. From February 17th to 20th, you’ll have 100 leading galleries from 17 different countries showcasing a stunning thematic selection of contemporary works in L.A.
For this three-day celebration, the iconic Beverly Hilton will tap into the pulse of the international art scene. Olafur Eliasson’s mesmerizing spheres will invite viewers to study shifting spectrums of light while Issy Wood and Evelyn Taocheng Wang will explore identity through apparel. Then tracking back to the US, Chris Burden’s mega architectural sculpture Dreamer’s Folly (2010) will be showcased in the US for the first time.
Adjacent to the main showrooms, there’ll be fascinating programming, including Focus LA with an emphasis on social impact initiatives and Frieze Projects. Focus LA will turn the spotlight on ten local young galleries offering a broad spectrum of mediums such as embroidery, metal sculptures, amorphous glassworks, cosmic digital scapes and Goya-inspired paintings. Frieze Projects will see a number of large-scale, multi-disciplinary installations dotted around the fair, exploring nature, history, protest and architecture within the context of the human experience.
At the heart of the fair, artist Tanya Aguiñiga will be presenting the BIPOC Exchange which aims to make the art world fairer and more inclusive. The organizations collaborating in the program include the People’s Pottery Project, Tierra Del Sol, AMBOS, Las Fotos Project, Classroom of Compassion, Tequio Youth/MICOP, and Urban Voices Project.
