This was easily one of the more popular pieces on view at the 2019 LA Art Show last month. Artist Laura Kimpton is the conceptual force behind the Monumental Word Series that began back in 2009 at the annual Burning Man art event in Nevada. Jeff Schomberg collaborated with Laura Kimpton in building and installing her conceptual designs.
If you’re at the LA Art Show today, we highly recommend you check out Melissa Morgan Fine Art in Booth #41. We were thoroughly captivated by works by artists Anthony James (whose work we had previously known only by reputation) and Andy Moses (who we’ve been fans of since meeting him at his show at Produce Haus a couple years ago).
“Anthony James is a sculptor, painter, and performance artist famous for setting fire to a Ferrari in a birch forest and entombing the ravaged car and trees in an installation called Kθ (2008). His practice incorporates a variety of industrial objects, steel vitrines, aluminum sculptures, detritus, and wall-mounted installations, his use of vitrines drawing comparisons to Damien Hirst and Jeff Koons. James is fixated with speed, mechanization, and the search for new practices to reflect themes of death, destruction, and rebirth.
“Andy Moses is a Los Angeles-based artist noted for his particular take on color and the relationship between space, shape and light. Moses paints with pearlescent pigments on concave canvases, which curve inward like the old Cinerama movie screens of the 1950’s.
Moses pushes the physical properties of paint through chemical reactions, viscosity interference, and gravity dispersion to create elaborate compositions that mimic nature and its forces. Moses also works with convex canvases, which utilize an outward curve, causing his pearlescent colors to shift and change as different amounts of light hit the surface at any given point.”
Conceived by Red Truck Gallery founder Noah Antieau and the late Juxtapoz Magazine co-founder Greg Escalante, for the past five years, 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.
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.

While you’re at the LA Art Show, we recommend stopping by Bert Green Fine Art (BGFA). Grey James will be featured in their Solo Projects booth (#827).
“Grey James’ paintings and mixed media works are concerned with the examination of specific motifs. Many of his core subjects are repeatedly and rigorously selected: the male nude, lemons, the sky, the sea, the horizon. At the center of the work is the idea of Nothing. As the artists observes: theres a lot going on in Nothing. As banal and monotonous as that appears, there are deeper meanings that touch on age old experiences of solitude, simplicity, and the truth found in silence and the observation and contemplation of the world. Simple works presented without pretension are tremendously powerful.”
After more than twenty years of exhibitions by The Museum of Contemporary Art hosted at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood, the programming agreement between the two organizations has reached the end of its term. The alliance between MOCA and PDC, which encompassed operational, managerial, and exhibition services that have made the MOCA Gallery a cultural destination for MOCA’s patrons and the architectural and design community, will end after the current exhibition, One Day at a Time: Kahlil Joseph’s Fly Paper, closes on February 24. Over the last two decades, MOCA has exhibited at the PDC countless important and internationally acclaimed shows, including shows by artists such as Takashi Murakami, William Kentridge, Sterling Ruby, Catherine Opie, Rodarte, Jean Prouve, and Rick Owens, among many others.
“We have enjoyed a successful relationship with MOCA, and on behalf of our many showroom tenants in the design community, are appreciative of MOCA’s many wonderfully curated exhibitions,” said Charles S. Cohen, the owner of the PDC.
“We are proud of MOCA’s record of achievement at the PDC,” said Maria Seferian, Chair of the museum’s Board of Trustees. “We are grateful for our partnership with the PDC and Charles Cohen and now look forward to consolidating and growing our exhibition activities, including presentations on architecture and design, at MOCA’s two Downtown Los Angeles locations.”
This exhibition is Ai’s first major institutional exhibition in Los Angeles and The Marciano Art Foundation will feature the new and unseen work Life Cycle (2018) – a sculptural response to the global refugee crisis. The exhibition will also present iconic installations Sunflower Seeds (2010) and Spouts (2015) within the Foundation’s Theater Gallery.
On view for the first time in the Black Box, Life Cycle (2018) references the artist’s 2017 monumental sculpture Law of the Journey, Ai’s response to the global refugee crisis, which used inflatable, black PVC rubber to depict the makeshift boats used to reach Europe. In this new iteration, Life Cycle depicts an inflatable boat through the technique used in traditional Chinese kite-making, exchanging the PVC rubber for bamboo.
This multifaceted installation is a continuation of Ai’s ongoing engagement with politics and social justice. It follows the release of his feature-length documentary, Human Flow (2017), which depicts the refugee crisis on film. In the artist’s op-ed for the Guardian in February 2018, he writes, “I was a child refugee. I know how it feels to live in a camp, robbed of my humanity. Refugees must be seen as an essential part of our shared humanity.”
Celebrate the 2019 LA Art Show, the art experience people are calling “The Most Comprehensive International Contemporary Art Show in America”. Who said that? People.
Experience prominent galleries from around the globe, lectures with noted leaders in the arts, engaging installations, and so much more. More than 200,000 square feet of exhibition space is committed to domestic and international galleries, many of whom curate special exhibits that are at the forefront of the burgeoning contemporary art movement.
