Art Los Angeles Contemporary, now in its fourth year, is the International Contemporary Art fair of the West Coast, held January 24–27, 2013. 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 70 top international blue chip 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.
For the 2013 edition, Art Los Angeles Contemporary is partnering with Ceci n’est pas… Art Between France and Los Angeles and will take part by hosting a special section of the fair dedicated to visiting French galleries and their exhibiting artists. The fair will also highlight the relationship between these two cultural hubs through extensive programming of talks, lectures, and screenings.
