Art Los Angeles Contemporary

Some of the sights at Art Los Angeles Contemporary

Some sights to be seen

Since we’d made the cross country trek to Art Basel in Miami, we figured the least we could do was travel cross town to check out opening night at this year’s Art Los Angeles Contemporary at Barker Hangar at the Santa Monica Airport.

After the headspinning madness of Miami, with way too many art fairs to process, we found ourselves happy to be able to focus on one fair, relax, and take in the art. Although we weren’t lusting after any one piece in particular, we did see enough art that held our attention to make the fair worth a visit. Art Los Angeles Contemporary, in its sixth year, focuses on Los Angeles-based galleries, but also includes plenty of national and international galleries featuring established and emerging artists.

Tonight’s event was packed, yet unlike Miami’s risk-taking, fashion-forward crowd, the L.A. art crowd seemed quite tame in their requisite blacks and grays. We had to strain ourselves to find the lone standout in our favorite Gucci boots.

Seeing Yellow at Art Los Angeles Contemporary

Seeing Yellow

Art Los Angeles Contemporary continues through this Sunday and includes events such as screenings, conversations, book launches and gatherings. We’re hoping to check out some of the conversations such as The Taste Divide and Collector as Curator on Friday and Saturday.

TIP: Eventbrite makes getting tickets a snap. Grab a bite at nearby spots like Superba Snack Bar or Cerveteca on Rose Avenue in Venice and make a day of it.
