Kavi Gupta looks forward to the 2022 edition of Felix Art Fair, at The Hollywood Roosevelt hotel in Los Angeles.
As part of our ongoing work of amplifying voices of diverse and underrepresented artists to expand the canon of art history, we will present new and historically important works from established artists, many for the first time in Los Angeles, such as 2022 Whitney Biennial artist James Little; MacArthur Genius Award winner Jeffrey Gibson; Venice Biennale artist and National Academy inductee Deborah Kass; Anonymous Was a Woman grantee Beverly Fishman; John Solomon Guggenheim Fellow and elected member of the American Academy of Arts & Letters Jessica Stockholder; AFRICOBRA founder Wadsworth Jarrell; legendary sculptor Richard Hunt; Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation grantee and Artadia Award winner Clare Rojas; 2021 Smithsonian Futures artist Devan Shimoyama; as well as works from the estate of renowned Los Angeles-based, Korean born abstract painter Young-Il Ahn (1934—2020). We are also proud to present new works from such visionary voices as Kour Pour; SuSu; Esmaa Mohamoud; Suchitra Mattai; Miya Ando; the anonymous, digital feminist/activist art collective, Rewind Collective who aim at addressing the gender and minority imbalances throughout the art world, and more.
The distinctive, boutique atmosphere of the Felix Fair offers us the chance to present and discuss important works of contemporary art in an intimate and conversational environment. By presenting a range of two and three-dimensional works from a variety of established and emerging artists in our program, our curation for Felix, LA 2022 will elucidate key figures on the international vanguard of contemporary abstraction, intertextual figuration and conceptualism.
