The LA Art Show will return to the Los Angeles Convention Center from January 23 – 27, 2019. As the city (and West Coast’s) largest art fair, and one of the most diversely programmed in the world, the LA Art Show features the most comprehensive lineup of exhibitors not only in contemporary and modern art, but also classical and other specialized art scenes that often command their own dedicated shows. For its 24th year, the LA Art Show will focus especially on programming from the Pacific Rim. To date, over 120 galleries and exhibitors have been confirmed, from more than 18 countries, hailing from North & South America, Asia and Europe. Many are participating in the LA Art Show for the first time ever.
CORE is a dedicated space for galleries recognized around the globe as leading the way in contemporary art. The galleries showcasing here continually educate, inspire and enthrall the world’s avid collectors with the most sought-after voices in the market. For the first time ever, Mizuma Art Gallery and Kamiya Co., LTD of Japan, Michael Goedhuis of London, and Galerie Sabine Knust of Germany will be joining the LA Art Show’s roster of exhibiting galleries. Mizuma will be showcasing new large-scale paintings Yoshitaka Amano, celebrated for his character art for the Final Fantasy series. Returning heavyweights include Patrick Painter Gallery, Timothy Yarger Fine Art and Pigment Gallery.
Modern + Contemporary
The largest section of programming at the LA Art Show, Modern + Contemporary exhibits the vast spectrum of contemporary painting, illustration, sculpture and more from galleries in Los Angeles, the Pacific Rim, and over 18 countries around the world. Rofa Project, K+Y Gallery, Masterworks Fine Art Gallery and Denis Bloch Fine Art, are just some of the galleries returning for 2019, along with a slew of new additions to the roster.
Capitalizing on the city’s position on the Pacific Rim, DIVERSEartLA is a special programming section devoted to nurturing the creative energy of international collectors, artists, curators, museums and non-profits by connecting them directly with audiences in Los Angeles. The LA Art Show donates 50,000 square feet of exhibition space to participating organizations each year as a civic duty, and the featured work is not for sale. Overall curation by Marisa Caichiolo with individual curators from institutions around the world.
Honoring the voices and movements that came before, ROOTS is a dedicated exhibition space for galleries that showcase historical works and contemporary artists following in those traditions. MS Rau and Rehs Galleries, Inc. return, with Trinity House joining this section for the first time.
Littletopia was conceived by Red Truck Gallery founder Noah Antieau and Juxtapoz Magazine co-founder Greg Escalante as a showcase of the best and brightest from the lowbrow and pop art movements, which originated here in Los Angeles. One of the only shows in the world to devote so much programming and space to this kind of work, thousands of attendees pass under Littletopia’s custom archway each year to enter the LA Art Show’s mecca for imaginative, new contemporary voices, and honor the visionary artists who came before. Red Truck Gallery and Caro Buermann of Corey Helford Gallery lead this year’s curatorial efforts.
Hailing from around the world, the exhibitors in Project Space showcase a broad array of ideas and talents in the form of solo exhibitions, presented by participating galleries.
