LA Art Show’s Summer Edition Highlights Female Creators and Digital Works

By Pearl Fontaine

July 26, 2021

A summer edition of the LA Art Show kicks off on July 29 with a special VIP night at the Los Angeles Convention Center. It will remain open through August 1, coinciding with the debut Los Angeles Gallery Weekend. This iteration of the fair will shine a spotlight on technology in the art world, becoming the first in-person show to join the NFT scene, in addition to programming like DIVERSEartLA and presentations surrounding more classic mediums.

A highlight of the show is curator Marisa Caichiolo’s DIVERSEartLA, puts a focus on women and non-binary artists working at the intersection of art, science, and technology. Organized to feel like an art museum, fairgoers will find presentations like San Marcos Museum of Art’s show of Angie Bonino’s “THE SYMPHONY OF NOW”; Museum La Neomudejar presenting Ana Marcos’s installation _DATA | ergo sum | RELOADED, which uses AI to observe its viewers; a project curated by Fabian Goncálves with Art Museum of the Americas; and Luciana Abait’s video work Agua, which is being shown by Now Art LA and Building Bridges Art Exchange. Viewers should also look out for Tiffany Trenda’s addition to the DIVERSEartLA roster, which will see the artist inviting real-time audience interactions via QR code.

Broaching the world of NFTs through a partnership with SuperRare, the LA Art Show will present “Sea Change”—an exhibition from Los Angeles’s first NFT-backed physical gallery, Vellum LA. The group show, co-curated by Nxt Museum’s Jesse Damiani and Sinziana Velicescu of StandardVision, will feature works by names like Claudia Hart, Krista Kim, Itzel Yard, and Marjan Moghaddam. Each existing on the Ethereum blockchain, the artworks will be presented in person using for the first time StandardVision’s LumaCanvas, which was developed for the exhibition, and is the first museum-grade digital display system.

In addition to these special features, the show will see programming like Citibank’s series of Virtual Galleries Talks and the anticipated lineup of presentations from returning galleries including names like Caldwell Snyder Gallery, In The Gallery, Gallery KITAI, Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery, and Arcadia Contemporary.
