Beverly Hills, Calif. (December 1, 2021) – The international contemporary art organization Frieze, which has previously held events in cities such as London, New York and Los Angeles, has partnered with the City of Beverly Hills to launch ‘Frieze Week in Beverly Hills’ February 17-20, 2022. This will be the first time the City has worked with Frieze to bring temporary public art projects to Beverly Hills as well as a weeklong program of events to celebrate art and culture.
“I am excited that the City’s Arts and Culture Commission as well as our Community Services Department has worked hard to make this collaboration a reality,” said Beverly Hills Mayor Bob Wunderlich. “Beverly Hills is a City that has a deep history and appreciation of art and we look forward to welcoming everyone to experience exhibits and events in such a beautiful and iconic setting.”
Frieze Week in Beverly Hills will have its main fair take place at 9900 Wilshire Boulevard, adjacent to The Beverly Hilton. 2019 marked the inaugural launch of the fair in Los Angeles and featured works from over 90 art galleries, attracting 35,000 visitors over its four-day run. The 2022 fair will be overseen by Christine Messineo, Director of Frieze Los Angeles and Frieze New York and will showcase significant works by today’s most prominent emerging artists alongside major figures in contemporary art in a range of solo, dual and thematic presentation.
On December 8, 2021, Frieze will give Beverly Hills residents exclusive priority booking for early bird tickets for the art fair beginning at 8 a.m. until 11:59 p.m. in which residents can save up to $52 off full-price tickets.
