LOS ANGELES, CA
With more than 90 galleries from over 20 countries including China, Czechoslovakia, France, Japan, Mexico, and the United Kingdom, LA Art Show 2017 continues a tradition as one of the largest and most international art fairs in the United States and ranks among the most prestigious events of the year in Los Angeles. It is poised to reach its most diverse audience and an expanded luxury lifestyle driven clientele with new and returning corporate and media partners, including Stella Artois and The Agency, who will lend their support to the arts and join the international collectors, artists, curators, and gallerists comprising the 70,000 visitors expected at this year’s fair.
Stella Artois has long been a sponsor of global art initiatives from ArtPrize to Art Basel Miami Beach and LA Art Show 2017 is proud to welcome them as its official sponsor. At this year’s fair, Stella Artois will showcase the work of DOMA, one of the most active art collectives in South America for the last two decades. They will present an exclusive sculptural installation as a commentary on their Latin roots and the idealization of the “L.A. dream,” as well as participate in the fair’s fourth annual Dialogs LA panel series to discuss the work, share an overview of their engagement with the arts, and present a newly published career retrospective catalog.
For the third year in a row, The Agency will be the official sponsor of the VIP Lounge at the LA Art Show 2017. The Agency will also present two Dialogs LA panels addressing home curation, home as art and how social media influences the decisions collectors today make about collecting for private and public spaces. Paul Lester, Partner and a Founder of the Los Angeles luxury real estate firm who designed the 2016 lounge, said, “At The Agency we live and work in the world of art in the considered selection of homes we bring to market. We are curators of the fine art of living. Our sponsorship of LA Art Show 2017 is in keeping with our commitment to contemporary art and design.”
“Our corporate partners, especially Stella Artois and The Agency, have earned well deserved recognition for their commitment to sponsoring arts programming and events around the world,” says Kim Martindale, general manager and producer of the LA Art Show. “We are delighted that they are bringing international art projects and new collectors to our community.”
