The LA Art Show returns to the Los Angeles Convention Center with a sensational Opening Night Premiere benefiting St Jude Children’s Hospital on February15. This is one of the “don’t miss” parties of the year. Guests will get a first look at art presented by 120 galleries, museums and nonprofit arts organizations, sample complementary treats and beverages from top LA restaurants, mingle with artists, gallery owners and other art aficionados.

“One of the most powerful things about art is that it brings people together, and ignites transformative conversations about what it means to be human, which feels particularly relevant in a world that’s forever shifting,” says LA Art Show producer and director Kassandra Voyagis. This year’s show will seek to celebrate art—globally and locally—and inspire important dialogue.

The show’s 28th edition will showcase an unparalleled international art experience. The largest section, Modern + Contemporary exhibits a vast selection of contemporary painting, illustration and sculpture from galleries in Los Angeles, the Pacific Rim and around the world.

The European Pavilion is dedicated to European galleries showcasing curated exhibitions that highlight contemporary movements and stylistic developments in Europe. New this year, The Japanese Pavilion will introduce more than 10 galleries from Japan.

As the first live show to showcase the NFT craze two years ago, the Contemporary digital art section will continue to introduce attendees to the incredible trend in digital art, showcasing more eye-catching art trends. 

The fair’s signature curated program DIVERSEartLA, a cultural anchor for the LA Art Show and the only educational project of its kind in the United States, will continue its curatorial focus on the global climate crisis. “The ethnic backgrounds of the people in Los Angeles are varied and vast, just like its natural environments,” says DIVERSEartLA curator Marisa Caichiolo. “To honor this unique biodiversity, we’ll continue our curatorial focus on diversity and inclusion—both within human communities, and in global ecosystems.

Since 2015, the LA Art Show has been a strong and unwavering supporter of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® as it leads the way the world, and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. In 2023, the LA Art Show is donating 15% of all ticket proceeds to St. Jude and its life saving mission.

LA Art Show February 15–19, at the Los Angeles Convention Center (West Hall). For tickets and more information, click here.
