The executive director of the fair is Bettina Korek, the ForYourArt founder whose L.A.-based organization serves as a platform to produce and distribute artists’ work. Former Hammer Museum curator Ali Subotnick has signed on to oversee a number of site-specific projects at the fair, which will bring together more than 70 contemporary galleries from around the world and will include panel conversations as well as film screenings.

Frieze Los Angeles will take place Feb. 14-17. More information is here.
