LA Art Show kicks off its 22nd edition at the LA Convention Center, Downtown Los Angeles. More than 100 galleries from over 20 countries and 70,000 attendees anticipated. Los Angeles, CA–Already considered one of the largest international art fairs in the United States, with 70,000 attendees last year, the LA Art Showis significantly expanding its footprint for its 22nd edition opening January 11-15, 2017. The 2017 fair will feature the most international list of exhibitors to date, with more than 100 galleries from over 20 countries including China, Czechoslovakia, France, Japan, Mexico and the United Kingdom; an expanded group of corporate and media partners, including Stella Artois and the China Cultural Media Group, among many others; and an exciting roster of new exhibitions and programs curated by major local and international museums and arts organizations.
In recognition of Los Angeles’s new position as an international hub for cutting-edge contemporary art across all mediums —from painting, sculpture and drawing to performance, video, and installation —the fair’s board of directors isplacing a new focus on post-war modern and contemporary artwork. This year the LA Art Show will also launch ROOTS, an exclusive curated section of historical dealers from the old Los Angeles Fine Art Show, presenting exhibitions of 18th Century European, Contemporary Realism, California Plein Air and Hudson River School paintings.
“As Los Angeles takes its place at the vanguard of the global art scene, our ability to adapt and evolve to meet the art market’s current trends and provide strong civic support is vital,” says LA Art Show producer and partner Kim Martindale.“The evolving role of the art fair as a fulcrum for art commerce, connecting galleries, artists, curators and international and multi-generational collectors drives our program.”
