The LA Art Show has refined it's focus to bring a freshly curated fair for it's 21st edition.

The LA Art Show team is constantly driven to present a magnificent art experience that brings together galleries, artists, curators, and collectors.

As Los Angeles takes its place as a vanguard of the global art scene, our ability to adapt and evolve to meet the art market’s current trends is vital. While dedicated to maintaining our commitment to technique and integrity we are refining our curatorial vision and presenting galleries that showcase premier Modern and Contemporary work at our 2016 edition. The 21st annual show will build on years of success, with new dates, a new hall, and a new direction affording the fair, our exhibitors, collectors, and tens of thousands or art enthusiasts a new quality experience.
