A multi-gallery event celebrating the new contemporary art scene in Los Angeles

Los Angeles’ first Beyond Eden Art Fair to be held at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Park.
The Beyond Eden Art Fair is a multi-gallery event celebrating the new contemporary art scene in Los Angeles. The public is invited to attend this special event and admission is free. A full listing of events, times, confirmed galleries and additional information will soon be available at www.beyondedenartfair.com.
After the success of last year’s East of Eden exhibition which drew over 3,000 people, the organizers have decided to branch out the scope of the fair and expand the focus geographically to include galleries from all across Los Angeles. The goal of Beyond Eden is to celebrate the new contemporary movement that has been building momentum and a patron base in Los Angeles for the past several decades and is finally starting to receive mainstream recognition from major institutions and publications the world over. Organizers are partnering with some of Los Angeles’ leading cultural and community organizations to help broaden the scope of the event. A percentage of the event’s sales also will be donated to MOCA on behalf of the MOCA Contemporaries. The event organizers forecast this year’s event to be even larger and more well received and are expecting upwards of 5,000 people to pass through over the weekend.
Beyond Eden will showcase the works of over 15 galleries and will be held inside the beautiful confines of the historic Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery during the weekend of October 9th, 10th and 11th, with an opening night celebration planned for Saturday, October 10th. An exact schedule of events and full details will follow shortly. A list of confirmed galleries includes Billy Shire Fine Arts, Black Maria Gallery, Carmichael Gallery of Contemporary Art, Copro Gallery, Crewest, DRKRM, Gallery 1988, Gallery Nucleus, La Luz De Jesus, Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery (LAMAG), LeBasse Projects, New Image Art, Subliminal Projects, Synchronicity Space, and Thinkspace.
Founded in 1951, the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery is a historic 10,000 square foot facility located on the sprawling grounds of Olive Hill in the Barnsdall Art Park. The park overlooks the city of Los Angeles and is also home to the famous Frank Lloyd Wright Hollyhock House and Arts Complex. Under the Department of Cultural Affairs, the LAMAG is the premier city-run gallery that focuses on contemporary art, particularly the work of living Southern California artists.
