Los Angeles, CA (November 24, 2021) - The LA Art Show, the most comprehensive international contemporary art show in America, is excited to be returning to the LA Convention Center with new and exciting programming just 6 months after their last event. This kick-off to the city’s 2022 art season makes a triumphant return to its traditional January event dates with a special focus on environmental programming.
2022 sees the highly anticipated DIVERSEartLA returning with a new ecological lens. Curated by Marisa Caichiolo, this year’s edition will examine not just how the environment is represented in art, but how humanity’s place in the world is depicted. This exhibition will open up an important dialogue about the Earth’s past, present, and future, uniting the community around discussions of the global climate crisis and potential solutions. This topic is already at the heart of a growing number of art narratives and DIVERSEartLA is honored to provide it with an additional platform.
“I am so honored to be once again bringing the art community together in Los Angeles, both with local participants and an international presence. With a focus on the global effects of humankind on the planet, it is the right time to be curating voices from around the world, and I am excited to facilitate this wonderful event,” says Kassanda Voyaigis, Director of the LA Art Show.
With the increased ability to travel safely, many of the show’s favorite participating galleries from Europe and Asia will be in attendance. Many of the attendees’ favorite galleries will be returning with all new work including Arcadia Contemporary, Mizuma Art Gallery, Neue Kunst Gallery, Pan American Art Projects, and Rebecca Hossack Gallery.
As the first live show to join the NFT craze, introducing attendees to the incredible trend in digital art, the LA Art Show has established a reputation for leading the pack. As such, visitors can expect even more eye-catching art trends. The show is committed to creating the most comprehensive contemporary art experience possible.
Since 2015, LA Art Show has been a strong and unwavering supporter of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® as it leads the way the world understands, treats, and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. In 2022, St. Jude returns as the beneficiary with the LA Art Show donating 15% of all ticket proceeds to its life saving mission. The LA Art Show is proud to bring together St. Jude and the art community once again, further expanding their positive impact on the community at large.
With an emphasis on relatable and timely issues, a gradual return to the fair’s traditional international presence, and the ever-popular DIVERSEartLA part of the show, the LA Art Show is kicking 2022 off with a bang! Please visit www.LAArtShow.com to learn more.
