The Art Platform – Los Angeles art fair will demonstrate the rich and diverse cultural landscape of Southern California and underscore Los Angeles’ influential position within the contemporary art world.

This exhibition will bring together the local and international artists, dealers, collectors, museums, and art enthusiasts that play important roles in the vibrant Southern California art community. To emphasize the increased recognition of Los Angeles as an international art capital along with the anticipation of the shows and events taking place during the Getty’s Pacific Standard Time initiative, the directive of Art Platform – Los Angeles 2011 will be to contextualize works by the many critically acclaimed artists working in and from Los Angeles. To demonstrate Los Angeles’ position in the contemporary art world, priority will be given to single artist presentations or to curated presentations of Los Angeles based artists, thus giving emphasis to artists individual practices both locally and globally.

Art Platform – Los Angeles is launching the same weekend as Pacific Standard Time: Art in LA 1945 – 1980, an unprecedented collaboration of more than sixty cultural institutions across Southern California, coming together to tell the story of the birth of the L.A. art scene. Initiated through grants from the Getty Foundation, Pacific Standard Time will take place for six months beginning October 2011. Pacific Standard Time encompasses developments from L.A. Pop to post-minimalism; from modernist architecture and design to multi-media installations; from the films of the African American L.A. Rebellion to the feminist activities of the Woman’s Building; from ceramics to Chicano performance art; and from Japanese American design to the pioneering work of artists’ collectives.
