The fair runs Jan 18 - 22 at the Convention Center in West Halls A and B. There are two separate shows running simultaneously, The Los Angeles Fine Art Show: Historic and Traditional (HAT) and the LA Art Show: Modern & Contemporary (MAC). Based on the turn-out at the opening night premiere party last night, hosted by David Arquette, it looks like outreach will successfully be elevated to new levels.
The Fine Art Dealers Association (FADA) who has organized the annual LA Art Show for the last 17 years is pleased to announce a new partnership and direction for the future. FADA President Betina Tasende states, “Partnering with Art Miami will bring a new level of commitment and future growth to the fair while adding value for Galleries. The two-show format is very exciting. We have set the highest standards for these shows and created an atmosphere catering to both the discerning collector and respected galleries”.
Come scope works by emerging artists, as well as your favorite established artists, like Ed Ruscha, John Baldessari, Henry Moore, Sebastião Salgado, David Hockney, Judy Chicago, Roy Lichtenstein, Arshile Gorky, Jim Dine, Andy Warhol, Fernando Botero and others.
