In addition to Pacific Standard Time, the unprecedented collaboration of more than sixty cultural institutions across Southern California coming together to tell the story of the birth of the L.A. art scene, three art fairs launch this weekend in Los Angeles:
Art Platform – Los Angeles – Over 90 exhibitors gather at the LA Mart downtown, presenting an expansive assemblage of contemporary art, ranging from exciting works by emerging artists to international blue-chip art.
Pulse Los Angeles – The Pulse art fair takes place on the Event Deck at LA Live, focusing on interesting and relatively affordable contemporary art.
Fountain LA – Set in the loft district by the L.A. River, the Fountain LA art fair showcases edgy galleries and independent artists.
To kick it off, join me Friday evening, Sept. 30, at the Vernissage Party at Art Platform – Los Angeles. You get to scope out the art before the fair opens to the public, party with movers and shakers of the art scene, and proceeds from your ticket will benefit LACMA, MOCA and the Hammer Museum.
Feel free to contact me, and I will be happy to share insights on the best of the Los Angeles art fairs and offer tips for building your art collection. And check my art consulting blog and Facebook page for more recommendations to add to your art collection.
See you at the art fairs!
