British company Rolls-Royce, which has been a pioneer in the industry in terms of design and quality since the 1900s and has broken world records about ships and aircraft engines, has made an attempt for Frieze Los Angeles. Frieze was founded in 1991 as a contemporary art magazine. In 2003, the company launched its first art fair in London. Currently, one of the most important contemporary art fairs in the World, Frieze started to take place in New York since 2012 and Los Angeles since 2019. The fair, which brings together thousands of visitors and tens of galleries every year, has become a benchmark for art collectors.
