Art Los Angeles Contemporary, the International Contemporary Art Fair of the West Coast, returns for its seventh edition on January 28–31, 2016, at The Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California, the pivotal weekend in Los Angeles’s contemporary art calendar. Drawing over 15,000 visitors in 2015, ALAC continues to reflect the pace of Los Angeles as the fastest growing art market, with rapid expansion as an international force in the art world.

The 2016 edition of ALAC brings together over 70 top established and emerging galleries from around the world, hailing from over ten countries and a dozen art capitals. Many of these galleries show for the first time at ALAC, including Bureau (New York), Christian Andersen (Copenhagen), Galerie Kadel Willborn (Düsseldorf), Kayne Griffin Corcoran (Los Angeles) and MOT International (London). ALAC is delighted to announce a strong presence of exhibitors who return to the fair after successful showings in earlier editions. These galleries include 1301PE (Los Angeles), Michael Benevento (Los Angeles), Shane Campbell Gallery (Chicago), CANADA (New York), David Kordansky Gallery (Los Angeles), One and J. Gallery (Seoul), Tif Sigrids (Los Angeles), STANDARD (OSLO) (Oslo), and team (gallery inc.) (New York/Los Angeles). The roster of exhibitors includes a dynamic cross-section of influential galleries from Los Angeles, reflecting both the fair’s long-term presence in its home city, and the arrival of the city’s thriving contemporary art community on the international stage.

“This is a proud moment for Art Los Angeles Contemporary as we enter our seventh year,” says Tim Fleming, Director. “Seven years of presenting the best, most influential galleries from Los Angeles, and seven years of supporting a community of artists, collectors, dealers, and institutions that is fierce, intellectually rigorous, and constantly changing and expanding. Even as the fair grows to be more international and varied in scope, supporting Los Angeles remains at our core.”

“Now we’re introducing significant new features to ALAC. I cannot think of an individual who’s more thoughtfully attuned to independent publishing than Miriam Katzeff, who will be traveling to Los Angeles from the Brooklyn offices of Primary Information to organize a special section featuring the latest and most compelling artist’s books, editions, and publications. I’m delighted about the renewed energy and focus brought to our talks and lectures program by curator Marc LeBlanc, who will be investigating what is happening now in artmaking in L.A., and presenting a romantic, sharp-toned history of how we got here.

“Along with the release of The Reader, our art newspaper that presents original texts from some of the city’s most engaging arts writers, these features take the ALAC weekend to the next level. We hope you’ll join us.”
