Frieze Los Angeles 2024 is here. The fifth edition of the art fair returns to Santa Monica Airport from February 29 to March 3, 2024. CLICK HERE to read a review from last year’s Frieze by Brook Harker on our sister site – an art inspired travel site. 

Frieze Los Angeles

Steered by Christine Messineo, Frieze Director of Americas, Frieze Los Angeles 2024 has a new site plan. Housed in a bespoke structure, designed by Kulapat Yantrasast’s architectural studio WHY, this year’s event will be bigger than ever. The updated site plan expands the signature Frieze tent and reimagines the outdoor space as a central gathering point. It also spans across more of the airport campus than ever before. In addition art and sculpture can be found both in the community park as well as the athletic fields.

Frieze Los Angeles 2024

Supported by Deutsche Bank, this year’s fair will bring together over 95 exhibitors from 21 countries, all under one roof. Nearly 50 percent of the fair is dedicated to galleries operating in the Greater Los Angeles region.

The Focus section of the fair will be overseen for the first time by Essence Harden (California African American Museum). This portion will highlight a diverse election of US galleries that have been in operation for 12 years or less.
