LOS ANGELES, CA (July 28, 2021) In mere days, the LA Art Show returns live and in-person, taking over 200,000 square feet of the Los Angeles Convention Center from July 29th to August 1st. The most comprehensive international contemporary art show in America is officially kicking off the city’s 2021 art season with a special Summer Edition. This year’s show is a harmonious merging of old traditions and new technologies, not the least of which is the return of Citibank.
This year, Citibank once again provides a presence at the fair with the 2021 LA Art Show Gallerist Talks, a series of in-person and live-streaming events and discussions highlighting some of the LA Art Show’s most popular galleries. Conscious of the state of our community and varying degrees of comfort when it comes to in-person programming, Citibank has come up with a thoughtful solution. In a coordinated effort, there will be both an in-person presence and a virtual experience, focusing on four selected galleries and the Citi Collection. The Pigment Gallery, Caldwell Snyder Gallery, Rebecca Hossack Gallery, and Simard Bilodeau Contemporary will be providing insight all weekend long, affording viewers a window into the experience of bringing work to the fair.
These talks will be broadcast around the world from Citi’s gallery space on the show floor all weekend long. This series gives viewers an in-depth look at the curation of each show, with spirited dialogue about each piece, with the option to experience it in person or from the comfort of their own home. Virtual viewers can experience each gallery’s virtual exhibit and livestream event which includes a gallery walkthrough, extended commentary, and conversations with gallerists.
While the in-person event is sure to be a jam-packed and astonishing experience, Citi’s has provided an alternative for those who cannot attend. With a 24-hour channel and calendar of livestream events there is something for everybody, from the LA local to the art enthusiast abroad.
