Frieze Los Angeles is unique among the art fairs in the international circuit for its proximity to stardom. Nestled in the lap of the entertainment industry, the fair—and the parties that take place after the sun goes down—attract rising stars and established names like moths to a flame; bringing artists, gallerists, and art lovers together for an unprecedented array of gallery openings and celebrations. After days spent wandering the 120-plus gallery booths at the Santa Monica airport, revelers gather across the city to sip cocktails with skyline views in West Hollywood and peruse the cult offerings on view in the East Hollywood gallery cluster, before disappearing behind the velvet ropes at the Chateau for private fetes and late-night debauchery. Below, take a glimpse at Frieze LA's after hours happenings.
