The LA Art Show, the 200,000 square foot art fair that welcomed more than 50,000 art enthusiasts to the Los Angeles Convention Center this past year, will launch its newly curated art show experience at the upcoming 2016 event. Looking back on the 20 year history of the LA Art Show, one can’t help noticing how it has evolved, changing locations and growing in diversity to reflect the trajectory of the burgeoning Los Angeles art scene. The 2016 show offers visitors and collectors a new hosted art experience which will entail a fair devoted to only Modern and Contemporary art. Located next door, the Los Angeles Fine Art Show will exhibit works of Historic and Traditional Contemporary Art.
Founded in 1994, the show has grown from a small regional event featuring 14 galleries to become the largest and longest-running platform for fine art, bringing in more than 120 galleries representing 22 countries.
In recent years, the LA Art Show has become the most internationally diverse art platform in the Western world, bringing in the largest groupings of Korean, Chinese and Japanese galleries outside of Asia. Beginning in 2010, the LA Art Show has actively developed its international gallery offerings to provide collectors with a unique opportunity, to spot international trends and zeitgeist through art, a medium that has the ability to transcend language. This keen focus has been a hallmark of the show.
For this 2016 edition of the LA Art Show, Other Criteria will be featuring an original Harland Miller oil and gold leaf work on paper, as well as prints from the artist‘s most recent collaboration with Other Criteria. Additionally exhibited will be Damien Hirst‘s newest Psalm prints, which debuted last month at Art Miami, alongside both sculptural work and unique paper diorama works by Mexican-American artist Eduardo Sarabia.
