ART LA, the New Los Angeles International Contemporary Art Fair, takes place at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, January 25 – 27 2008. The fair presents 64 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 rest of the United States and abroad.

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