The 56th annual exhibition of modern and contemporary art, held at the Los Angeles Convention Center since 1970, will return to the venue today through January 23. The fair is pleased to provide an array of international galleries that have been unable to visit due to travel restrictions as the event's first event on the grounds since the pandemic.

This year's exhibit, curated by Marisa Caichiolo, will pay particular attention to the environment's depiction in art and humanity's place within the world. The LA Art Show has been the world's largest and longest running art exposition and is excited to bring together an array of international galleries, along with a lecture series highlighting leading organizations and thinkers in the field of contemporary art.

"LA Art Show is honored to be one of the first exhibitions back after six months," says show director Mary Hruska. "There is no better place to hold the 56th edition than at the Los Angeles Convention Center, and we are pleased to give visitors a chance to see some of the industry's finest work in one location."

The fair is pleased to host a variety of foreign galleries that have been unable to attend previous shows on the grounds since the pandemic because they had been kept out by travel restrictions. The seventh edition of the Epica Awards was also curated by Marisa Caichiolo, with a special attention to both the environment's depiction in art and humanity's place within it. The exhibitors are hoping to start a discussion about the Earth's previous, present, and future path for its preservation and humanity's role as caretaker rather than consumer.The "Post-Pandemic" LA Art Show will run from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. until January 23, 2022 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, 1201 South Figueroa St., Los Angeles, CA 90015
