Frieze Los Angeles‘ debut edition took place February 14—17. The fair saw more than 30,000 visitors, including collectors, curators, critics, civic leaders, and members of the entertainment industry. 70 galleries presented across the tent, designed by Kulapat Yantrasast, and the curated backlot. Whitewall was there, with our first print edition of Whitewaller Los Angeles, featuring Guest Editor Kulapat Yantrasast. We were lucky enough on opening day to get special tour from the architect.
