Frieze 2023 sets up shop at the Santa Monica Airport — a new, expanded location to account for the fair’s largest Los Angeles presentation to date. More than 120 galleries, representing 22 countries, are sprawled out across the airport’s Barker Hanger (notably the former site of the LA fair ALAC) in the exhibition tent and outside around the airfield.
Frieze Projects also returns, with outdoor, site-specific installations and large-scale sculptures. Notably, Jay Ezra Nayssan, founding director of Del Vaz Projects, curates an off-site series called Against the Edge, which is happening at significant cultural architectural sites along LA’s Westside. Visitors are invited to visit these locations and witness each artist’s work in conversation with its paired setting.
The Focus section of the fair, which only used to highlight local spaces, now includes participants from across the US. And, in an additional effort to branch out from the local level, this year’s fair includes Frieze Viewing Room, a digital space that opened on Feb. 9 ahead of the fair (and concludes on Feb. 20) and offers a virtual look at the gallery shows and programming happening alongside Frieze.
