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.

MAGGIE NELSON ON SARAH LUCAS

In conjunction with the New Museum exhibition SARAH LUCAS—AU NATUREL, Maggie Nelson—author of The Argonauts—will talk about Lucas’ work, investigating the “provocations, humor, and critical shape-shifting” in her practice, and reflecting on “the stakes of the artist’s embrace of pleasure and perversion.”*
