FELIX AND FRIEZE LOS ANGELES

Sales are good, tickets are selling out, events are full, and the sun is shining—although a brief shower is forecast for midday Sunday—so the inaugural edition of Frieze Los Angeles should be followed by many more.

We hope Felix returns, too. Co-founded by Morán Morán brothers Al and Mills and collector Dean Valentine, it’s an intimate fair headquartered in Hollywood.

Through Sunday, February 17.

7000 Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles.

An Arthur Jafa edition of Name That Tune has been added to today’s Frieze Talks, and the fair will close on Sunday with Miranda July and Maggie Nelson in conversation.

When you’re out on the Paramount studio backlot in the Frieze Projects section, stop by the Sqirl/Acid-Free space for Sqirl Away to-go items from the Los Feliz restaurant as well as a selection of art books and periodicals, including Liz Craft’s …my life in the sunshine—published by DoPe Press—and the new print issue of PARIS LA.

TUTTO GIO PONTI

The MAD exhibition TUTTO PONTI—the first French retrospective of Gio Ponti’s œuvre—lives up to its name by including over 400 examples of the seminal designer’s work in architecture, furniture, and interior design.

In addition, the show looks at Ponti’s writing and publishing projects for Domus, where he was editor-in-chief from 1928 to 1941 and 1948 to 1979.

Ponti—whose career spanned nearly six decades—is strongly identified with the city of Milan, and many of the show’s pieces have never been seen outside of Italy.
