Following last year’s online-only event, Frieze Los Angeles is returning in person with a new fair director and an exciting new venue in Beverly Hills.
Running from February 17–20, the fair will feature more than 100 galleries from around the world, as well as exhibitors representing the very best of LA’s dynamic arts scene.
“We missed Frieze Los Angeles last year but that will only make our reunion in 2022 all the more memorable,” said Claudio de Sanctis, Global Head of the International Private Bank and CEO EMEA for Deutsche Bank. “We look forward to seeing our clients and friends on the West Coast, and thanks to our online programme, connecting with many more in the U.S. and internationally.”
Frieze Los Angeles finds a new home in Beverly Hills
The fair will take place at 9900 Wilshire Boulevard, adjacent to the Beverly Hilton Hotel, in a prime position between the Hammer Museum and the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts.
Christine Messineo, the fair’s new director, has brought galleries, artists, and organisations together to deliver an unforgettable programme. A number of large-scale multi-disciplinary works will be displayed in and around the venue for Frieze Projects, an independently curated platform for artists to show experimental work beyond the gallery booths of the fair. This year’s selection explores issues including the nature and history of protest as well as the relationship between the mind, body and object.
How the Frieze Los Angeles experience continues online
For those unable to attend the fair in person, the LA edition of Frieze Viewing Room will give art enthusiasts the opportunity to browse the best of the exhibitors online.
Frieze Los Angeles will also welcome the fourth instalment of Art:LIVE, an online video collaboration between Deutsche Bank and Frieze Studios that provides viewers with a guided tour of the fair’s highlights and a unique insight into the bustling atmosphere on Preview Day.
This edition will feature the acclaimed artist – and Los Angeles native – Kehinde Wiley, whose iconic portrait of Barack Obama was unveiled at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery in 2018.
‘Facing change’ – the theme of the Deutsche Bank Frieze Los Angeles Film Award 2022
Los Angeles remains a magnet for emerging film-makers and we are proud to announce that the Deutsche Bank Frieze Los Angeles Film Award will return for its third year. The award sees ten filmmakers selected for a four-month virtual programme led by Ghetto Film School and Endeavor Content.
Echoing the important commitments we have made as a business to help shape a more sustainable future, the brief for this year’s award invited filmmakers to explore the idea of ‘facing change’ through their storytelling.
“We are delighted to see the Deutsche Bank Frieze Los Angeles Film Award growing in relevance and importance year by year,” said Anna Herrhausen, Global Head of Art & Culture, Deutsche Bank. “The shortlisted fellows of the last three years of the award have all been inspirational, the quality of the films exceptional in concept and production. We are proud to help these young filmmakers make their way.”
“This is a natural extension of Deutsche Bank’s commitment to art and culture, which has been promoting contemporary art and supporting emerging artistic talent for over four decades.”
An enduring partnership between Deutsche Bank and Frieze Art Fairs
“Frieze Los Angeles has found an exciting new home in keeping with the prestige of this remarkable fair,” said Nicky West-Poole, Head of Event, Partnership, Brand & Creative Marketing at Deutsche Bank International Private Bank. “This is our 19th consecutive year as Global Lead Partner of Frieze Art Fairs, and we continue to move forward, creating unique experiences for our clients around contemporary art, including the launch of Frieze Seoul this September. ”
Positive steps towards Net Zero at the Deutsche Bank Wealth Management Lounge
Beginning in earnest at last year’s Frieze London, we have committed to lowering our environmental impact at all of our events. “We’re on a journey to Net Zero,” said West-Poole. “And when planning what we do with our client lounges at each fair, there are always positive steps we can take in the right direction.”
In our Deutsche Bank Wealth Management Lounge at Frieze Los Angeles, we will highlight some of the positive steps we are taking with our partners to make our events more sustainable. You can learn more about our Positive Steps initiative and the steps we took at Frieze London and Frieze Masters here.
