Art fairs are like chameleons, acclimating to their native habitat with ease. While Art Basel Miami is full of raucous all-night parties and a seemingly insurmountable labyrinth of art, Art Platform - Los Angeles takes the SoCal route, endowing the experience with a laid-back California attitude.
Back for its second year, the fair of choice for Cali-bred art lovers revolves around the pillars of being for Los Angelinos: light, space, innovation, and recreation. Emphasizing Los Angeles' status as an international arts capital, Art Platform takes over the sprawling city for a weekend, spotlighting the Golden State's homegrown talent at a variety of museums, galleries, personal collections and fancy homes. There are fairs, yes, but there are also benefits, personal tours, brunches and of course, parties.
The weekend promises infinite opportunities for art adventures. But since we know how much Californians hate stress, we asked Art Platform director and Huffington Post blogger Adam Gross to provide an itinerary to help you navigate the next few days. See his suggestions below and enjoy your art-drenched weekend.
"Art Platform-Los Angeles" runs from September 28 to September 30 with an opening preview September 27 at The Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, CA.
