artfairs, inc., producer of the highly acclaimed art fairs photo MIAMI and photo l.a., is pleased to announce ART LA 2007, spearheaded by the fairs recently appointed director, Tim Fleming. After two successful editions, ART LA, the only major contemporary art fair to be held in Los Angeles in more than a decade, returns for a third year to the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium.
ART LA will focus on Los Angeles’ vast number of important galleries ranging from established blue-chip galleries to young experimental art spaces, all operating at the forefront of contemporary art. Also invited are a select number of prominent international galleries. The fair will draw international attention to the multi-faceted world of contemporary art, showcasing current international trends while spotlighting the productive art world that is thriving in Los Angeles.

We are excited to be partnering with Los Angeles galleries to draw international attention to the fast-paced local art scene,” says ART LA director Tim Fleming. Our concept is to bring together a diverse range of LAs influential contemporary galleries ranging from the very established to the radical younger spaces in an effort to strengthen the ever-growing Los Angeles art community. ART LA is an intimate fair offering the interested art patron a broad view of the LA scene and its relationship to contemporary artistic production on a global scale.
