The Los Angeles Art Show
Next week some of the greatest Contemporary and Modern Art around will be in Los Angeles at the LA Convention Center. It’s time for the 2019 rendition of the Los Angeles Art Show. There’s something for everyone to like at one of the country’s oldest art shows. Additionally, while certainly a mecca for Contemporary and Modern Art, the show also features Historic and Traditional Art as well.

The blog has certainly been on a bit of an art kick these last couple of weeks. I have yet another impressive art event to talk to you about. This time it’s Art Los Angeles Contemporary, also known as ALAC, a tremendous international art gathering. As part of the ninth edition of the fair, ALAC welcomes over 60 new and returning exhibitors from Europe, Latin America and Asia. There will be exciting art exhibits as well as on-site talks and lectures. Discussions will involve contemporary art and where Los Angeles stands in the international contemporary art community.
Pricing for the event proceeds like thus: Opening night $60; one-day pass $25; three-day pass $30.

A brief sampling of exhibitors who caught my eye include:
These exhibitors caught my eye while quickly perusing the ALAC list. There were many others that i’d love to include on the blog, but I want to encourage you to check out the website and the exhibitor’s list for yourself.
If you find yourself in the Santa Monica area with some free time over the next week, you should definitely check out Art Los Angeles Contemporary.
Hauser Wirth & Schimmel, is the Los Angeles location of Hauser & Wirth, and part of the burgeoning Arts district of Downtown LA. They are an international gallery which focuses on contemporary/modern art. And at the gallery’s very own bookstore “Artbook,” you can further explore the artists and movements that are featured. The store has a variety of different books, catalogs and prints. In addition, “Manuela,” a new restaurant which specializes in seasonal, soulful cuisine is coming to the gallery as well. It highlights ecological sustainability through its own onsite vegetable and herb garden. It also utilizes other locally-sourced ingredients too. The restaurant from the mind of Chef Wes Whitsell opens later this summer.
The gallery hosts a series of free live music performances every Thursday from 5pm to 9pm. It is appropriately called “After 5”. You can explore the current exhibition, and then stride through the gallery’s central courtyard for the weekly event. As a matter of fact, it currently features ‘Revolution in the Marking; Abstract Sculpture by Women, 1947 – 2016.’
Enjoy live bands and DJ sets, while you sip on craft cocktails from one of the areas hottest bars—Spare Room Hollywood. And you can munch on some Russian hand-pies from Pirozhki LA as well. If you are looking to explore your artistic sensibility and refine your palate, this is a perfect night on the town.
This Thursday, July 21st, musician Jason Golday is set to perform at After 5. A native of the California Institute of the Arts, the composer writes, performs and records music for television and film. He uses guitar along with a variety of different other instruments to “incorporate the unique aural periphery of a given locale.” Sounds pretty interesting to me!
If you’re in the mood for music, some food and drink, and some Arts and Culture, check out After 5 this Thursday.
