The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel
Los Angeles, CA

Felix LA is a new contemporary art fair and reflection of Los Angeles's growing importance in the field. Its mission is to create a more intimate fair experience for collectors, dealers, and artists that prioritizes connoisseurship, collaboration, and community. Felix LA was co-founded by Dean Valentine along with brothers Al Morán and Mills Morán. A return to the hotel fair format, in the spirit of the storied Gramercy International Los Angeles at the Chateau Marmont, Felix LA grants galleries an efficient exhibition opportunity while offering the city's burgeoning collector-base intimate access and maximum flexibility. The informal setting will allow for more extended conversations among collectors, dealers, and artists alike. The first edition of Felix LA was in February 2019 at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.

ALAC, Los Angeles's first international art fair, has consistently focused on presenting the highest caliber of art galleries and artists, both emerging and established. In 2020, ALAC will present forty five galleries, providing an exclusive and sophisticated fair experience, where collectors can become acquainted with a tightly curated group of exhibitors, and members of the public can be introduced to galleries from around the world.
