General Info

ART LA, the New Los Angeles International Contemporary Art Fair, takes place at the Barker Hangar at the Santa Monica Airport, January 23 – 25 2009. The fair presents a select roster of 60 top international and Los Angeles based galleries representing an informed cross-section of today’s contemporary art trends and directions.

The exhibiting galleries at ART LA are an even balance of established blue chip and emerging galleries, all presenting the most progressive, international art work being produced today. Half of the exhibitors hail from the immediate Los Angeles area, and half are from the United States and abroad.

The fair is designed to spotlight the Los Angeles art scene and its prominence within current international artistic trends. The fair brings influential international galleries and their artists work for the interested art patron and collector alike to enjoy. The finest examples of contemporary artwork will be available for view and sale.
