Three Art Fairs to Attend in February
Art Palm Springs
Art Palm Springs is the premier art fair in the Southwest presenting post-war and contemporary art. This years edition will bring nearly 80 galleries from Asia, Europe, North and South America representing hundreds of artists to the Palm Springs Convention Center. The Fair is strategically scheduled over the extended President’s Day Weekend coinciding with Palm Springs Modernism Week at the height of the Coachella Valley’s season. Art Palm Springs and Modernism Week turn the Desert into a cultural mecca over this weekend, attracting close to 15,000 acquisition oriented art lovers to the Fair year after year.
1-54 returns to La Mamounia between the 23 – 24 February 2019, with VIP Previews on the 21 – 22 February 2019.
For its second Marrakech edition, 1-54 will present 18 international galleries and the work of over 65 established and emerging artists. Once again the fair will be accompanied by a wider programme of events in partnership with local institutions across the city, including Museum of African Contemporary Art Al Maaden (MACAAL), Musée Yves Saint Laurent Marrakech, Montresso Art Foundation*, Comptoir des Mines Galerie, LE 18 and Foundation Farid Belkahia among others. In parallel to the fair, 1-54 FORUM also returns to La Mamounia with daily talks and screenings curated by art historian and curator Karima Boudou.
A reference to fifty-four countries that constitute the African continent, the title of 1-54 establishes the parameters of the fair’s ethos: as a platform that strives to represent multiplicity and showcase the diversity of contemporary African art and cultural production on an international stage.
Art Los Angeles Contemporary
The tenth edition of Art Los Angeles Contemporary will feature top established and emerging galleries from around the world, with a strong focus on Los Angeles galleries. Participants presented some of the most dynamic recent works from their roster of represented artists, offering an informed view on contemporary art making.
