Following the success of its first installment last year, the Felix LA art fair will return to The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles for its second edition this coming February. From Oakland-based Creative Growth Art Center to the international Institute of Contemporary Art organization, a total of 60 exhibitors will take part in the event with 25 new galleries added to this year’s lineup.

This year’s fair will also introduce its first-ever Curator of Special Projects who is set to organize Felix LA’s projects and presentations across the hotel’s grounds. Though the person behind the role has not yet been revealed, founders Dean Valentine, Millis, and Al Morán assert that the curation will explore themes of queerness, femininity, and identity.

“Young artists chatted with famous dealers; people looked at each other’s work; older artists brought students around. Sentimental educations were in the offing. This is what art fairs ought to be,” said renowned art critic Jerry Saltz to New York Magazine in regards to the fair’s first edition.
