The LA Art Show returns to the Los Angeles Convention Center from Thursday, Jan. 15 through 18, and will showcase works by hundreds of artists.
The show will feature an extensive program of Latin American art that includes special exhibits, lectures and a large showcase of galleries from Mexico, Venezuela, Columbia, Cuba and the Dominican Republic. Located in the convention center’s South Hall, the Latin American art program will explore themes of cultural exile, the evolution of Latin American art in the United States and abroad, and engaging the Latin American art community. The program will include modern artists, celebrities, arts professionals and collectors.
“Nomads Sculptures”, an installation by Cuban artist Angel Ricardo Ricardo Rios, will feature a selection of inflatable sculptures up to 26 feet tall. The project has six monolithic pieces, columns, fruits and small trees placed in pots, which are based on different versions of a fable told by Ettore Sottsass.
“Outside Also”, a performance installation by Cuban artist Angel Delgado, explores the underlying ambiguities of physical confinement. Works by pioneering “Los Four” Chicano artists Frank Romero, Carlos Almaraz and Judithe Hernandaz will be featured in a curated group show titled “Art Going Public – Happily Ever After?”, presented by the Mural Conservancy of Los Angeles.
Additionally, the Museum of Latin American Art will showcase pieces from its permanent collection and featured exhibitions, and the LA Art Show will also feature works submitted by Latin American galleries such a FIFTY24MX Gallery, Antena Estudio and Maria Isabel Becerra Ambrocio, from Mexico; Arte Berri, from the Dominican Republic; Galeria Moro, from Venezuela; 308 Arte Contemporaneo, from Cuba; and Luis Ernesto Ortiz, from Columbia.
The LA Art Show runs concurrently with the Los Angeles Jewelry, Antique & Design Show at the Los Angeles Convention Center, 1201 Figueroa St. For information, visit www.laartshow.com.
