The LA Art Show, the city’s largest and longest-running art fair, returns to the Los Angeles Convention Center (West Hall, 1201 S Figueroa St, Los Angeles) on February 15–19 to kick off the city’s 2023 art season. Guided by the leadership of LA Art Show producer and director Kassandra Voyagis, the 28th edition promises a larger global presence and more ambitious programming than ever before.
LA Art Show will donate 15% of all ticket proceeds to support the life-saving work of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. The LA Art Show 2023 includes the exciting return of the European Pavilion; the debut of the Japanese Pavilion featuring six galleries from Japan; and more South Korean artists and galleries than ever before in testament to the country’s thriving arts scene.
This year’s fair will inspire important social dialogue, including the work of Ukrainian artist-turned refugee Denis Sarazhin. While stranded due to the war, he was able to secure accommodations in the U.S. following a generous GoFundMe campaign, and is now transmuting the chaos and uncertainty of his unraveling life into paintings of wild transformation. TRANSformation by MRG Fine Art in partnership with Zero Two 20 promises to be a thought-provoking exhibition, creating an open platform for talent of diverse backgrounds, addressing a foundational transformation inherent in the evolutionary process of both artists and society alike.
Featuring nine art institutions, the Fair’s non-commercial program and cultural anchor, DIVERSEartLA – curated by Marisa Caichiolo – returns with an ambitious agenda, addressing the global climate crisis. As part of this, MOLAA will present work from iconic Ecofeminist Judy Baca and AMA will present one of Mexico’s most prominent photographers, Alfredo De Stefano.
