LA’s largest and longest-running art fair, will return to the Los Angeles Convention Center from February 14-18, 2024 to kick off the city’s 2024 art season.
Guided by LA Art Show producer & director Kassandra Voyagis, the 2023 show welcomed more than 60,000 visitors. With tickets now live, the 2024 iteration promises another spectacular international lineup of exhibiting galleries and museums from countries including the Philippines, Italy, Israel, Peru and South Korea: “The LA Art Show is committed to creating the most comprehensive international contemporary art experience imaginable,” says Voyagis. “We keep building a bigger and better version every year.”
Curated by Marisa Caichiolo, LA Art Show’s signature non-commercial platform, DIVERSEartLA will be back for 2024 with a range of art exhibitions and tech-based immersive experiences. In collaboration with some of the world’s top international art institutions, visitors will be encouraged to explore the evolving relationship between memory, humanity, and AI. Last year’s iteration featured nine interdisciplinary projects examining the climate crisis, including inspiring works by artist and ecofeminist, Judy Baca and renowned Korean artist Han Ho.
The LA Art Show has announced its new Charity Beneficiary, the American Heart Association, a global force for healthier lives for all. Celebrating its centennial in 2024, the Association has saved and improved lives, pioneered scientific discovery, and advocated for healthy public policies in communities across the country. The LA Art Show will donate 15% of proceeds from every ticket to the American Heart Association’s Life is Why ™ campaign.
