AddThis Social Bookmark Button

The beloved Littletopia section of the ​LA Art Show has showcased some of the fastest rising lowbrow and pop art galleries, curators and artists in the world,a movement that first flourished in Southern California, returns.

Conceived by Red Truck Gallery founder Noah Antieau and the late Juxtapoz Magazine co-founder Greg​ Escalante,​ for the past five years. The LA Art show is one of the only shows in the world to devote so much programming and space to this kind of work.

Thousands of attendees pass under Littletopia's custom archway each year to enter the LA​ Art Show's​ mecca for imaginative, new contemporary voices, and honor the visionary artists who came before.

This year, Caro Buermann of the leading new contemporary Corey​ Helford Gallery joins​ Red​ Truck Gallery to bring Littletopia into the future by highlighting the women who have fueled the rise of the new contemporary art movement. Hi-Fructose Magazine​ joins as media partner for the first time ever.​       

Camille Rose Garcia

 

Each year, an artist is presented with a Lifetime​ Achievement Award.​ The recipient for 2019 will be Camille​ Rose Garcia,​ following the release of her long-awaited Dr.​ Deekay universe, in the form of the full-length illustrated book The​ Cabinet of Dr. Deekay​, an art exhibition, a series of sculptures, and a stop-motion animation, with additional cinematic adaptations in the works.

She will also be exhibiting a special installation, presented by Corey​ Helford Gallery and curated by Caro​ Buermann.​ Often compared to Mark​ Ryden,​ she has been a working artist since the age of 14, depicting wasteland fairy tales influenced by vintage Disney cartoons. To this day, her work serves as commentary commentaries on the failures of modern day utopia, blending nostalgic with a satirical skewering of modern society. Her work is currently held in Los Angeles County Museum and San Jose Museum of Art.

In December, Garcia was honored as the recipient of Maestro​ Dobel Tequilla's Legacy​ Series at Art Basel Miami for her contributions as a Mexican artist. Last year's recipient was the legendary Margaret​ Keane of "Big Eyes" fame.

Dosshaus

 

This year's Collector​ of the Year Award will be presented to Danny​ Carey,​ drummer of the multi-platinum, Grammy-winning rock band Tool​ ,​ and his wife, Rynne​ Stump​. They are avid collectors of artists such as Stanislav​ Szukalski, Rick Griffin, Mab Graves, Adrian Cox, James Jean, Meredith Marsone, Andrew Shoultz, Arik Roper, Jason Borders and Martin Ontiveros, among others.​             

Every edition of Littletopia​ is marked by a custom, artist-created archway. The 2019 edition will be created by the iconic cardboard duo, Dosshaus​,​ fresh from their success at the Lucca​ Biennale.​ Dosshaus​ is the creative collaboration of Zoey​ Taylor and David​ Connelly,​ artists whose work blends painting, sculpture, photography, fashion, video, and performance.

From the outset, the pair has been interested in the intersection of high and low culture. Responding to a society saturated with social media-generated images in which reality itself seems more and more relative, Dosshaus​ explores the impact the emerging culture has on the way people view themselves and their place in society.

They seek to create something out of that culture – a substitute reality that selectively accepts and rejects the conventions placed upon them individually as people and collectively as artists. They use recycled cardboard, paper, acrylic paint and glue as their primary mediums to fashion their own highly idealized universe.

 

Australia's Pip​ & Pop (Tanya Schultz) will create a special on-site installation at the LA​ Art Show,​ immersing attendees with an eclectic​ range of materials including sugar, glitter, candy, plastic flowers, everyday craft materials and all sorts of objects she finds on her travels. Her practice embodies both independent and collaborative processes across varying disciplines including installation, painting, wall-works and sculpture.

Often ephemeral, her meticulously constructed and highly detailed works embrace notions of abundance, utopian dreams and fleeting pleasure. She is fascinated with ideas of paradise and wish-fulfillment described in folk tales, mythologies and cinema.

Other installations include work by SAUTE​ ,​ presented by ​Superchief Gallery,​ ATTABOY​ 's​ "Cradle of Life," presented by Hi-Fructose​ Magazine,​ a new sculptural installation of Brandi​ Milne's "Snowman," and work by Jasmine Beckett-Griffith.​

Confirmed galleries exhibiting include Boxheart Gallery, Copro Gallery, Corey Helford Gallery, John Natsoulas Gallery, Keane Eyes Gallery, Red Truck Gallery, Sally Centigrade and ​Superchief Gallery LA​ .        .​

The LA Art Show will​ return to the Los​ Angeles Convention Center from January 23 - 27, 2019. As the city (and west coast's) largest art fair, and one of the most diversely programmed in the world, the LA​ Art Show features​ an encyclopedic lineup of exhibitors not only in contemporary and modern art, but also classical and other specialized art scenes that often command their own dedicated shows. For its 24th year, the LA​ Art Show will focus especially on programming from the Pacific Rim​ .​

    As I look outside my window, to see a whole city covered in a blanket of snow, I’m reminded of Bing Crosby, Christmas carols and all things holiday. Yet, the presents under the tree have been opened for some time now, the ornaments gone, and lights properly put away. Don’t get me wrong, I love winter, being from Colorado; I love skiing down the slopes of Breckenridge and walking in my snow-boots to Starbucks. I love everything from the first frost to the last flake falling.
