The Focus section, for US galleries that have been operating for 12 years or less, is a platform for emerging and underrepresented voices. Supported by Stone Island, whose grants promote participation in Focus alongside Frieze subsidies, the section this year consists of 12 galleries and explores ideas of ecology. AWAD Member Dominique Clayton, with her gallery, Dominique, is one of the seven first time exhibitors in the Focus section. Please come find them at booth F04! They are featuring a solo presentation of work by artist Mustafa Ali Clayton.You can also find Dominique Gallery on Artsy.

Frieze Los Angeles is once again directed by Christine Messineo, Frieze’s Director of Americas, and housed in its signature tent designed by Kulapat Yantrasast’s architectural studio WHY. The 2024 edition sees a new site plan across the airport campus that reimagines the outdoor space as a gathering point – what Mark Thomann (Director, Wilding X WHY) calls ‘a welcoming sanctuary centered on food, culture, and community’ – with installations and pop-ups from some renowned LA restaurants. The fair will again feature a program of site-specific artworks, public activations and sculpture across the Santa Monica Airport airfield. 

The 2024 fair brings together more than 95 galleries from 21 countries, with nearly 50 percent of them operating in the Greater Los Angeles area; 13 of them will be showing at Frieze Los Angeles for the first time.
