Carlos A. Rivera’s Los Angeles: Destroyer, Felix, and The Ovitz Collection

By Whitewaller

February 14, 2019

All this week in preparation for Frieze Los Angeles, we’re hearing from leading art, culture, and lifestyle experts share how they enjoy Los Angeles. Next up, dealer Carlos A. Rivera.

WHERE TO EAT AND SIP:
In downtown, Grand Central Market followed by a visit to the Bradbury Building is a quintessential L.A. morning. In the mid-city, Destroyer applies Scandinavian rigor to Californian ingredients. On the Westside, Felix puts out the best Italian in the city, Pizzana makes extraordinary pizza, and Cassia has Southeast Asian food worth the drive.

WHERE TO SEE ART:
The Broad and Marciano Art Foundation are more popular choices, but the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation is a brilliant time capsule of Los Angeles collecting in the ‘80s and ‘90s set in a private home in Holmby Hills. The Ovitz Collection, in nearby Beverly Hills, is a prescient and encyclopedic collection of important objects ranging from African to emerging contemporary art.

WHERE TO RELAX:
L.A. is topographically gifted. Sailing from Marina Del Rey and hikes from Pacific Palisades are my two favorite ways to spend an afternoon. If you’re not a hiker or a sailer, Little Beach House Malibu or Pace restaurant in the Hollywood Hills are good alternates.
