LA Art Show
Jul 29 - Aug 1(All times are in PDT)
The LA Art Show, the most comprehensive international contemporary art show in America, is honored to officially kick-off the city’s 2021 art season at the Los Angeles Convention Center running from July 29, 2021 to August 1st 2021. This special Summer Edition–on the heels of the landmark 25 year anniversary–takes a closer look at some of the latest technological trends in the art world, while still offering a traditional lens for art from around the globe. In order to best cater to their loyal and large fan base, the LA Art Show has developed some unique programming to showcase some of the most interesting advancements in art including AR, VR, and NFTs, while also spotlighting women.
This new programming, in addition to the design and more classic mediums the show is known for, was designed with the viewers in mind, exposing people to something new and making digital art and technology more accessible. With this, the LA Art Show will be the first LIVE show to join the NFT conversation.
Sitting among the exciting additions and traditional staples, we have the return of DIVERSEartLA, an important and highly-anticipated part of the show curated by Marisa Caichiolo. This part of the show will focus on the presence, contributions, research, and documentation of women and non binary artists at the forefront of work at the intersection of art, science, and technology, represented by guest museums and institutions.
The 2021 roster would not be complete without the return of some of the LA Art Show’s favorite galleries including Arcadia Contemporary, Caldwell Snyder Gallery, Simard Bilodeau Contemporary, Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery from London for the lineup of Modern + Contemporary, as well as LA favorite, Track-16. The show will once again have an international presence with the Pigment Gallery returning from Spain, In The Gallery returning from Denmark, and work from Gallery KITAI in Japan, just to name a few.
For the past six years, LA Art Show has been a strong and unwavering supporter of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® as it leads the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. In 2021 St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® remains the beneficiary, but in an expanded capacity. Previously opening night proceeds had benefited the charity, but this year the LA Art Show is donating 15% ALL ticket proceeds to its life saving mission.
The LA Art Show is excited to once again interact with the community in a safe way, welcoming back old friends and joining new ones for the first time. With the draw of a long-awaited in-person event, a carefully curated group of artists, a focus on women and technology, and the charitable component, tickets for this event are likely to sell quickly.
