12 Must-See Works at the First Ever ‘Frieze Los Angeles’

 

Frieze Los Angeles made its much buzzed about debut yesterday, fully living up to the spirited anticipation surrounding the international fair. Thousands of art-seeking Angelenos, celebrities, New York transplants and far flung jet-setters flocked to the Paramount Pictures studio lot to experience what many feel has been long overdue for the art-driven city. These days considered a cultural hotbed, L.A. boasts galleries like Regen Projects, Hauser & Wirth, Hannah Hoffman, The Box, Night Gallery and The Pit – all of which are exhibiting this weekend, alongside a total of 21 local and 49 international dealers.

For opening day, it was a fair floor filled with the likes of Raf Simons, Brad Pitt, Maria Sharapova, Leonardo Di Caprio, James Franco…there was even a rumor Beyonce was on her way. For those who frequent the fair’s New York or London counterparts, you can expect Frieze LA to offer you a more pleasant experience logistically, with a curated selection equally stimulating.

Here are the 12 works that stood out to us most.
