Over 100 Galleries & Museums Represented at the Globally-Focused 16th Annual LA Art Show
By Rebecca Joyce/Special to LAist
A wonderfully diverse crowd filled the convention center this Sunday for the last day of the 16th annual LA Art Show. The event is the largest of Los Angeles Arts Month, with over 100 galleries and museums bringing works from all over the world.
The featured program of the show was China Today, over a dozen Chinese galleries giving attendees a rare look at the driving force that is modern Asian art. Many of these Chinese galleries have never shown in the United States.
Also in the U.S. for the first time was La Casona Gallery from Cuba. Uruguay, Argentina, Spain, Venezuela, Peru as well as many U.S.-based Latin American Art galleries also gave the Spanish-Speaking art world a large presence at the LA Art Show.
Attendees were treated to the live art installation Vox Humana, presented by L.A. Art Machine.
Lovers of photography were treated to a private collection of Henri Cartier-Bresson prints curated by Peter Fetterman. The exhibit titled Rarely/Unseen was just that, and for viewers wanting more Peter Fetterman Gallery will feature Cartier-Bresson’s work in their exhibit Eye Of The Century, opening in October.
The show was sure to please enthusiasts of art of all genres and periods while making clear that the Los Angeles Art Show is the ultimate destination for seeing what is new, great, and hot in art today.
