Art Los Angeles Contemporary, Barker Hanger, Santa Monica ,California, January 30, 2014 to February 2, 2014

Art Los Angeles Contemporary, the International Contemporary Art Fair of the West Coast, returned to the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica on Thursday January 30 and continued through Sunday February 2
For its fifth edition, ALAC features a roster of international and Los Angeles galleries presenting new work from their represented artists. The fair featured an extensive program of screenings, panel discussions and performances.

This year's fair was a real treat. It was smaller than previous years. However, that was perfect. The galleries and exhibitors brought their best works forward. The whole fair was well curated. One did not feel overwhelmed or visually jaded by the entire fair. Some of the highlights of this year's fair were Solomon Huerta's new paintings (Christopher Grimes Gallery), Barbara Bloom's sculptures and video works (Tracy Williams Ltd), Ruby Neri's sculpture installation (David Kordansky) and David Armstrong Six (Parisian Laundry). David Armstrong Six will show later this year at Night Gallery in Los Angeles, California. His works defy both weight and gravity. Six is definitely an artist to look out for in the near future, When I left the fair, I was thoroughly satisfied about my experience. I look forward to next year's Art Los Angeles Contemporary.
