ARTISTS IN RESIDENCE: LA ART SHOW

DTLA-WEEKLY.COM

2018 LA ART SHOW RETURNS to LA Convention Center

A

lready considered one of the largest international art fairs in the United States, with 70,000 attendees last year, the LA Art Show is significantly expanding its footprint for its 22nd edition opening January 11-15, 2017.

T

he 2017 fair will feature the most international list of exhibitors to date, with more than 100 galleries from over 20 countries including China, Czechoslovakia, France, Japan, Mexico and the United Kingdom; an expanded group of corporate and media partners, including Stella Artois and the China Cultural Media Group, among many others; and an exciting roster of new exhibitions and programs curated by major local and international museums and arts organizations. In recognition of Los Angeles’ new position as an international hub for cutting-edge contemporary art across all mediums — from painting, sculpture and drawing to performance, video, and installation — the fair’s board of directors is placing a new focus on post-war modern and contemporary artwork.

This year the LA Art Show will also launch ROOTS, an exclusive curated section of historical dealers from the old Los Angeles Fine Art Show, presenting exhibitions of 18th Century European, Contemporary Realism, California Plein Air and Hudson River School paintings. “As Los Angeles takes its place at the vanguard of the global art scene, our ability to adapt and evolve to meet the art market’s current trends and provide strong civic support is vital,” says LA Art Show producer and partner Kim Martindale. “The evolving role of the art fair as a fulcrum for art commerce, connecting galleries, artists, curators and international and multi-generational collectors drives our program.” For the third year in a row St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® will be the beneficiary of LA Art Show’s Opening Night Preview and Premiere Party, which will kick off festivities on January 11, 2017 with a portion of ticket proceeds benefiting the hospital’s mission. Last year’s Opening Night Preview was attended by more than 7,000 VIPs and was hosted by Anne Hathaway and Adam Shulman. laartshow.com

ow do they do it? Well, it seems to be a trade secret for now, but Fix Cafē exists to revolutionize the DTLA food culture and make the $4 cup of coffee a distant memory.  The powers behind Fix Cafē want the working people of Los Angeles to get something for their hard earned money besides a thankless commute and an overpriced lunch.  With the support of the DTLA public, which is already well underway, Fix Café is destined to become a “fixture” of DTLA and change its food and business landscape forever. The food revolution is long overdue and you are encouraged to celebrate each and every day.

12. DTLA ARTIST IN RESIDENCE: REDCAT's 11 Days of Pacific Standard Time

DTLA-WEEKLY.COM

11 Days of Pacific Standard Time at REDCAT

A

s part of the Getty-led initiative Pacific Standard Time Festival: Live Art LA/LA will run from January 11 through 21, 2018.

“Many of these influential artists are confronting urgent topics, building on the traditions of performance art practice in Latin America and Southern California that are deeply rooted in a history of political and social activism, protest, and struggles for human rights and against colonialism.”

O

rganized by REDCAT, CalArts’ Center for Contemporary Arts, in collaboration with partner organizations throughout the city, the 11-day festival will feature more than 75 works by Latin American and Latino artists, performed at more than 20 indoor and outdoor spaces throughout greater Los Angeles. Supported by a major grant from the Getty Foundation, events will range from large-scale, site-specific performances to multi-artist evenings and will be presented in parks, plazas, galleries, theaters, and busy urban settings. “Over the last two months, art museums, galleries, and performing arts spaces throughout Southern California have presented exhibitions and events as part of PST: LA/LA, inspiring thousands of people to explore works by Latin American, Latino, and Chicano artists,” said James Cuno, President and CEO of the J. Paul Getty Trust. “Now, with the Pacific Standard Time Festival: Live Art LA/LA, supported by the Getty Foundation, we will connect artists from more than a dozen countries with communities throughout Los Angeles with vital performances that address a variety of issues relevant to the people of the regions represented throughout PST: LA/LA.” Mark Murphy, Executive Director of REDCAT, who is organizing the festival with Associate Director Edgar Miramontes and Gallery Director/Curator Ruth Estévez stated,

“We’re enthusiastic about working with our partner organizations to present events ranging from community-based projects in neighborhood parks to industrial-strength performance installations.”

F

estival highlights will include an opening celebration featuring groundbreaking Mexican artist Astrid Hadad, the fierce Mexico City diva of performance art; an outdoor motorcycle performance on an artist-designed obstacle course by LA-based artist Carmen Argote an ambitious, three-part performance by Rafa Esparza at MOCA Geffen, created for the festival and Sylvia Palacios Whitman’s reenactment of actions from the 1970s, presented at the REDCAT gallery.

Collaborative programs featuring a variety of performers and voices include an interdisciplinary evening of music, spoken word, theater, comedy, and the visual arts at the historic Mayan Theater; a two-day performance art biennial in partnership with the USC Roski School of Arts and Design; and a performance and social practice event featuring new works by five LA-based artists responding to works in the PST: LA/LA exhibition Laura Aguilar: Show and Tell at the Vincent Price Art Museum. Organizations partnering with REDCAT to present Pacific Standard Time Festival: Live Art LA/LA programs include 18th Street Art Center, The Armory Center for the Arts, The Broad, Hammer Museum, Human Resources LA, LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions), The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), Machine Project, The Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA), USC Roski School of Art & Design, Self Help Graphics & Art, Skirball Cultural Center, and the Vincent Price Art Museum. Many of the performances are free. redcat.org
