Los Angeles hosts several art fairs in January, kicking off the 2017 international art fair circuit. But with the Los Angeles art fairs spread over a three week period, and each of the fairs offering quite different types of art, you may want to plan ahead. To help you to find the art that interests you the most, here is Perkey Fine Art Advisor‘s guide to what to see at the Los Angeles art fairs.

LA Art Show Jan 11-15, L.A. Convention Center
A visit to LA Art Show, one of the world’s largest and longest running art fairs, offers visitors a diverse menu of contemporary and post-war modern art across many different mediums. With more than 90 galleries from over 18 countries, LA Art Show 2017 delivers broad international programming. The focus this year is on Latin American Art, but you will also discover strong presentations from Europe, China, Cuba, Japan and South Korea. LA Art Show launches ROOTS, an exclusive curated section of classic art presenting exhibitions of 18th Century European, Contemporary Realism, California Plein Air and Hudson River School paintings. Experience live performance art and engaging art installations, as well as Dialogs LA, a series of talks and panel discussions featuring artists, collectors, museum directors, curators and internationally renowned art and cultural leaders.
