But some point out that the seemingly zeitgeisty shift to LA is nothing new in the art world.
From an increasingly diversified roster of galleries to a surprising slew of rock art, the mega-fair is impressively eclectic this year.
Two gallery shows currently on view in Los Angeles place women artists in conversation with a period of contemporary art history that has been primarily shaped by the output of male artists.
I didn’t expect to say this, but Independent Projects is a lovely fair. Started by the creators of the Independent, Armory Week’s alterna-fair, and taking place in the same location, the former Dia Art Foundation building on West 22nd Street in Chelsea, Independent Projects simultaneously builds on and slims down its sister fair’s model.
