The LA Art Show, LA’s largest and longest-running art fair, returns to the Los Angeles Convention Center February 14-18, 2024, to kick off the city’s 2024 art season. Guided by the leadership of LA Art Show producer & director Kassandra Voyagis, the 29th edition welcomes the return of the fair’s signature curated program DIVERSEartLA: “We are excited to continue facilitating this pioneering program,” said Voyagis. “It ignites important dialogue through art and helps to deepen our understanding of what it means to be human.”
Curated by Marisa Caichiolo, DIVERSEartLA partners with important international art institutions to generate thoughtful dialogue through art while also honoring the unique biodiversity of Los Angeles. Last year’s iteration featured nine interdisciplinary projects examining the climate crisis, including inspiring works by artist and ecofeminist Judy Baca and renowned Korean artist Han Ho. The 2024 program explores the intersection of memory, humanity, and AI through a selection of art, technology, and multimedia exhibitions. Eight of the world’s top art institutions will present solo projects, including The Nevada Museum of Art presenting “The Journey” by contemporary artist Guillermo Bert and The Museum of Contemporary Art in Bogotá presenting “Mythstories” by multimedia artist Carlos Castro Arias. DIVERSEartLA 2024 is also proud to announce the second edition of the Museum Acquisition Award for Emerging and Mid-Career Artists.
