Felix Art Fair
Felix returns this week to its decidedly relaxed location amid the cabanas of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel to celebrate its fifth run. This year’s iteration tacks on an additional day of viewing to help you get in all 65 international exhibitors, but still aims to maintain its signature anti-trade show vibe that offers a bit of poolside refuge to weary art lovers.
Not to miss: A light-hearted presentation from New York-based gallery A Hug From the Art World, featuring 40 action figures of famous artists by Jeffrey Dalessandro. Another highlight is the artist-led project section, with Andrea Zittel’s High Desert Test Sites booth, which showcases ceramics alongside other small-scale objects.
Find participating galleries around the pool and in the hotel tower itself. Local exhibitors include Anat Ebgi, Gavlak, Harper’s, Tierra Del Sol, Charlie James Gallery, and many others. Felix might favor a laid-back approach, but 2023 swings heavy with a major roster of contemporary art. While you’re there, keep an eye out for the new issue of my magazine Carla, which will be distributed around the fair. Tickets range from $40 to $80 and are available here for purchase.
