THE LA ART SHOW
MODERN + CONTEMPORARY
The LA Art Show is distinguished as the region’s foremost celebration of the visual arts offering collectors, galleries and the community the opportunity to view, exhibit and purchase art from around the globe. Every year we exceed all expectations and 2017 proved to be record breaking as we deepened our roster of galleries, pursued new exciting art programming and engaged LA’s major art institutions. The demands of the evolving art market in Los Angeles and it’s emergence as a vital player of the global art scene drives our marketing and planning. Creating an art show which influences the highest level of creative innovations through the connection of world-class galleries, renowned artists, top curators and collectors is our goal. The LA Art Show is proud to be one of the world’s largest and longest running events with more than 100 leading galleries from over 18 countries exhibiting in 200,000 square feet of exhibition space to an estimated 70,000 attendees over a four day period.
