Fabrik Expo–a new art fair focused on the convergence of art, design & architecture–will open with a benefit for Inner-City Arts (ICA) on January 29, 2016. An artist-centric show, Fabrik Expo and Inner-City Arts are committed to supporting creativity among today’s emerging artists.
“We are pleased that Fabrik, a preeminent voice in the LA art and culture community, is launching the Fabrik Expo in our backyard–the DTLA Arts District, and we are thrilled to be the beneficiary of this one-of-a-kind event” said Bob Smiland, Inner-City Arts’ President & CEO. “Fabrik Expo celebrates creativity and artistic diversity, and so it is quite fitting that proceeds will support the creative development of under-served LA youth.” Inner-City Arts will host various creative workshops at Fabrik Expo on Saturday, January 30 and Sunday, January 31. On a first come, first served basis, the diverse workshops will be led by ICA’s core team. (image left: Inner-City Arts fostering tomorrow’s artistic talent)
Fabrik Expo will shift perspectives about the nature of contemporary art by introducing groundbreaking works from artists that blur the boundaries between art, design, architecture, environment and media. Fabrik Expo is committed to expanding the art fair experience and exposing audiences to a wider range of artists, media and practices that represent the cultural, aesthetic and conceptual diversity of contemporary art and design in the 21st century.
