About Exhibition

Frieze Los Angeles is a leading international art fair that was launched in 2019. Christine Messineo is the Director of Frieze Los Angeles and Frieze New York. Frieze Los Angeles largely focuses on contemporary art and celebrates the exceptionally dynamic culture of Los Angeles and its global contributions to the visual arts. Following two sold-out editions, the fair will return from February 17-20, 2022 in a new location in the heart of Beverly Hills. Situated at 9900 Wilshire Boulevard, adjacent to the Beverly Hilton Hotel, the new location will see the fair occupy a prime position between the Hammer Museum and the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts. The fair will be hosted in a bespoke structure designed by WHY Architecture’s Creative Director, Kulapat Yantrasast, and Landscape Director, Mark Thomann. Bringing together over 100 of the most significant galleries from LA and around the world, the fair experience will be completed by Frieze Week events across the city. This year, Focus LA, the section of the fair dedicated to galleries aged 15 years or younger will be curated by Amanda Hunt (Director of Public Programs & Creative Practice, Lucas Museum of Narrative Art) and feature 11 of the city’s defining young galleries. The 2022 edition of the fair will also see the debut of Frieze Sculpture Beverly Hills, a public art initiative that has previously been realized in both London and New York. Featuring major installations by artists that work on a monumental scale, Frieze Sculpture Beverly Hills is free and open for all to attend and will take place at Beverly Gardens Park, supported by the City of Beverly Hills.
The 2020 edition of the fair, which was held at Paramount Pictures Studios, welcomed 35,000 visitors and featured 75 local and international galleries in addition to an Artist Street Fair as well as unique artist commissions as part of Frieze Projects.

Katja Seib (b. 1989, Dusseldorf) graduated from Dusseldorf Kunstakademie with an MFA in painting in early 2016. Working figuratively, Seib paints directly onto canvases of raw hessian fabric using photographs on her phone. Through a combination of technologically-mediated imagery, a fascination with surface pattern and texture, and a self-conscious glance back to the histories of her medium, Seib creates works that are simultaneously familiar and strange, combining a subtle interplay of texture and image with deft brushwork and a meticulous attention to detail.
