Museum Engagement

LA Art Show in 2017 offers a slate of new programming established with the city’s major art institutions. The programming, which establishes a public platform to present the city’s world-class art and cultural initiatives to an estimated 70,000 visitors from around the world, comprises special exhibitions, installations, performances with a thematic focus on Latin American art, and a series of high-level conversations with prominent museum leaders, internationally recognized curators and artists. Designed from its inception in 1995 to address the cultural interests of Angelenos, LA Art Show played a large role in engaging the community with the depth of international work from the Pacific Rim and Europe. For its 22nd edition, with 100 leading galleries from over 18 countries and a robust slate of programming organized with The Broad, the Getty, LACMA, MOCA, MOLAA, Anaheim’s Muzeo and UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center, the 2017 Show establishes a new and more vital global forum for the arts in the hub of the city’s vibrant art scene.

Avant-garde and realistic
Yu Xiaofu is not a simple realism that emerges from revolution; the rupture of the depressing, one fold cultural trend manifests his avant-garde. Using simple oil painting language and romantic skill, personal narrative replaces historical narrative; personal truth replaces historical truth.
