The LA Art Show, the most comprehensive international contemporary art show in America, will officially kick-off the city’s 2020 art season at the Los Angeles Convention Center on February 5, 2020. As LA’s largest and longest-running art fair, this year marks a milestone both for the LA Art Show and the entire LA art community. As the LA Art Show celebrates its 25th Anniversary, Los Angeles will be gearing up for the biggest lineup of art and cultural programming in the city’s history—rivaling New York, the reigning arts capital of the US.
Since the turn of the decade, the city’s status as a marketplace has seen an astronomical rise. Over 50 galleries have opened in LA since 2013. In that same time frame, three brand new world-class museums and institutions have opened, all rivaling MOCA in size. All the activity has attracted the attention of Frieze.
So far, the 2020 lineup of exhibitors includes LACMA, The Broad, Japanese American National Museum, La Neomudejar Museum from Madrid, MOLAA, Art Al Limite, LA Art Association, the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center, and many others. For the first time ever, work will be presented by the Danubiana Museum of Bratislava, with a special exhibition from the collection of Homeira Goldstein, and more. Proving to be popular in years past, the performance programming for the 2020 DIVERSEartLA includes work by PSJM Collective from Spain and artist Miss Art World, presented by the LA Art Association. The fair will host over 100 galleries from 18 different countries.
bG Gallery of Santa Monica and its Gestalt Projects will host a special exhibit titled “Circular Cluster.” As one of the selected artists for the Gestalt Space exhibition at the LA Art Show, SoCal Light & Space artists, Frederika Roeder, will be showing two abstract works in mixed media: Concarena Massif and Prosecco. Each piece is 8″ in diameter. Materials include archival digital image on canvas with watercolor, acrylic pens, neon, prismacolor pencil.
