14 DIGS.NET 1.19.2018 C I T Y BARKER HANGER 3021 AIRPORT AVENUE SANTA MONICA, CA 90405 BARKERHANGER.COM The ninth annual Art Los Angeles Contemporary lands at Barker Hangar this month WRITTEN BY JENN THORNTON EXHIBIT L.A. T he global art communi turns its gaze to L.A., as Santa Monica's Barker Hangar welcomes Art Los Angeles Contemporary (ALAC), Jan 25-28. Now in its ninth year, the West Coast extravaganza will put the contemporary art world on show in a ci as culturally diverse as its representation. "As the international art community looks towards Los Angeles as a new global epicenter, it is essential to have an event that draws upon a comprehensive notion of the city," said Tim Fleming, founder and director of Art Los Angeles Contemporary. "ALAC is a product of Los Angeles' unique cultural community composed of an incredibly diverse array of artists, galleries, curators, institutions, collectors and enthusiasts." A quick glance at ALAC's 2018 exhibitor list proves Fleming's point. Along with a substantial group from L.A., including David Kordansky Gallery and AA|LA Gallery, are domestic galleries from San Francisco, Chicago, Detroit and New York, and an international contingent spanning from Montréal to Moscow and prominent points in between. Fair first-timers from Bogotá, Lima, and London will join both upstart and established galleries. is exhibitor group, as well as programming devised to provoke an examined discussion of contemporary art, will, as Fleming puts it, affirm L.A.'s emergence as a "powerful cultural hub."
