The LA Art Show begins this week in Downtown Los Angeles (January 14th-18th). The iconic art fair is celebrating its 20th Anniversary. Founded in 1994, the show has grown from a small regional event to become the largest and longest running platform for fine art, bringing in more than 120 galleries representing 22 countries. Over the duration of its 20 years the LA Art Show has evolved along with the Los Angeles art scene. This particular fair brings together all kinds of art, mediums, and venues to offer a truly diverse platform for the equally diverse LA art market. Sparking global art trends, the LA Art Show has consistently been a growing environment for artist, dealers, and galleries to share in an evolving dialogue about the current and future state of the arts.
“The art and artists that have been featured at the LA Art Show have been exceptional over the years,” states LA Art Show Producer Kim Martindale. “I feel that the breadth and quality of the art has sometimes gone under the radar because of the grand scale of our event. We’ve had more than a dozen Venice Biennale artists exhibit their works at our show, as well as artists that have exhibited at major museums such as The Met and LACMA. Now that we are entering our twentieth year, it is an opportunity to look back on all of our accomplishments and the success we have amassed. Having a strong understanding of where we have been will help us chart out our next steps and direct how we want to grow in the future.”
Freeway Editions is most excited about the large list of Modern Contemporary galleries as well as the galleries representing works on paper. The world of art on paper is rarely featured at large art shows such as this but what’s unique about the LA art scene is there is incredible art in all mediums and the LA Art Show is an avid supporter of that idea.
