Rebecca Ann Siegel, Director of Americas and Content, Frieze said: ‘This edition’s scale, refined features, and, most importantly, outstanding list of participating galleries, makes this Frieze Viewing Room a must-see. For those of us in Los Angeles this July, there is much to see around town, and we look forward to welcoming many more faces next February.’
Venus Lau, independent curator and writer, added: ‘Digital and virtual existence is more than what appears on a screen, it is no longer opposed to the real, instead it is a part of, or an anamorphosis, of reality. Artists aaajiao, Nik Kosmas, Liu Chuang, Lu Yang and Peng Ke rethink the mechanisms of digital existence in the artworks presented in the digital section of Frieze Los Angeles 2021.’
