In its third year, Art Los Angeles Contemporary—a massive, West Coast–based art fair—presents 70 established and emerging galleries from around the world while focusing on Los Angeles artists. Participating galleries present recent works from their roster of represented artists, displaying a cross section of what is happening currently in contemporary art. In addition to viewing artwork, visitors can sit in on artist talks, participate in panel discussions led by museum curators, or find out how much mashed potatoes is needed to craft a life-size sculpture of oneself. Special events are staged onsite and throughout the city in satellite locations. For a full listing of featured events, check the schedule.
Art Los Angeles Contemporary
Each year, more than 60 galleries and artists from Los Angeles and the intangible web of the art world beyond flock to Art Los Angeles Contemporary like butterflies in migration. During their stay, they display their colors in Santa Monica's Barker Hangar, which hosts 40,000 square feet of exhibition space with 40-foot ceilings ideal for extra-tall installations or human pyramids made of Shaquille O’Neal sculptures. In addition to paintings and functional furniture from emerging and established artists, Art Los Angeles Contemporary also hosts a programming series of talks, curator-led panel discussions, and film screenings. This year, the exposition will spotlight Ceci n’est pas… Art Between France and Los Angeles, a cultural-exchange program culminating in more than 30 French-American collaborations.
