Los Angeles: Fair Director’s Picks
Ahead of The Other Art Fair Los Angeles taking place April 16-19, 2020, we asked Los Angeles Fair Director Nicole Garton to select the artists she is most excited to see at the fair.
“The beauty of visiting The Other Art Fair is in falling in love with a work by an artist you’ve likely never seen before.
I’m particularly excited for visitors to discover the works of these 9 artists — each of whom will be showing with us for the first time at Barker Hangar. Their works are notable for having a highly developed personal style; a strong underpinning of ideas; and a striking handling of color, line, and form.
The best part is, you’ll able to meet each of them in person at the fair this April to learn more about their work and to discover many other talented artists, as well — all in one place.” – Nicole Garton
