Art Los Angeles Contemporary, now in its seventh year, is the International Contemporary Art Fair of the West Coast, held January 28–31, 2016.
ALAC returns to the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, a known arts venue with 40,000 square feet of exhibition space and soaring 40 foot ceilings. The fair presents top established and emerging galleries from around the world, with a strong focus on Los Angeles galleries. Participants present some of the most dynamic recent works from their roster of represented artists, offering an informed cross section of what is happening now in contemporary art making. The fair provides a sophisticated yet accessible environment for art collectors, curators, and patrons of the arts alike to enjoy.
In addition, the fair hosts a comprehensive, curated programming series of world class artist talks, panel discussions, film screenings and performances. Special events are staged on site at the art fair as well as throughout the city in satellite locations. Home to internationally renowned museums, leading art schools, hundreds of contemporary galleries, and a prodigious number of practicing artists, Los Angeles serves as the perfect landscape for a progressive, international contemporary art fair.
