Art Platform – Los Angeles art fair demonstrates the rich and diverse cultural landscape of Southern California and underscores Los Angeles’ influential position within the contemporary art world. Bringing together both local and international artists, dealers, collectors, museums and art enthusiasts that play important roles in the vibrant Southern California art community, Art Platform – Los Angeles emphasizes the increased recognition of greater Los Angeles as an international art capital. In pursuit of such emphasis, Art Platform – Los Angeles 2012 will both continue to provide unprecedented access to the art, galleries, institutions and collections that define the Los Angeles art scene, and to contextualize them within a broader, international framework.
Art Platform – Los Angeles, the modern and contemporary art fair for Los Angeles, hosted its second edition at the historic Barker Hangar at the Santa Monica Airport, just minutes from the beach and the Santa Monica Pier. The move to the Barker Hangar emphasized Art Platform – Los Angeles’ commitment to greater Los Angeles as an international art capital, and to the growth of the fair as an essential event in the ever expanding art world. As the premier art fair in Southern California, Art Platform – Los Angeles seeks to capture the very essence of this great city – light, space, innovation, and recreation.
