Supply chain disruptions have claimed a new victim: Frieze Sculpture Beverly Hills, the sculpture installations planned to accompany the February art fair in Beverly Gardens Park.

“Due to delays in shipping and labor shortages as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have determined that we do not have sufficient artworks to realize a full-scale public-sculpture installation,” a spokesperson for Frieze said in a statement.

Frieze Week, which will run from Feb. 17-20, will bring over 100 art galleries from 17 countries to Beverly Hills. The main site of the fair will be at 9900 Wilshire Blvd. directly across from the Beverly Hilton.

Frieze Sculpture Beverly Hills, a temporary sculpture garden in Beverly Gardens Park intended to last until May, would have marked the west coast premier of the popu- lar Frieze sculpture series that has appeared in London and New York.

As recently as Jan. 4, the City Council had temporarily changed the city code to allow for the attraction.

“We are grateful to the City of Beverly Hills, as well as the participating galleries and artists, for all their support. We continue to look forward to this year’s Frieze Week in Beverly Hills,” the spokesperson said.
