Experience the LA Contemporary Art Scene

We are delighted to invite you to join our pre-Frieze Art Fair programming in Los Angeles this February 13th-16th. In the days leading up to the fair, our focus will be on visiting world-class private collections, blue chip and emerging artist studios, and you will be received by curators and directors of the city's top galleries and museums. We will gather on the afternoon of Monday, February 13th for a special reception at a private collector's home followed by a welcome dinner and will go on to enjoy two additional full days of immersive art experiences and special events on Tuesday and Wednesday before the VIP opening of the fair on Thursday. This program will be accompanied by Artful art educator and Los Angeles resident Andrea Feldman Falcione, who invites us to enjoy her insider's perspective through visits behind doors otherwise closed to all but her friends.
