Two Art Shows Bring Global Variety to Los Angeles’ Art Patrons, Highlighted by an Exciting Sculpture Garden and Experience Lounge.

We are about empowering all kinds of creative expression,” stated Chris Davies, founder and director. “For 2018 we are excited to showcase an indoor sculpture exhibition, which will feature large-scale to monumental, freestanding sculpture works, by artists such as Jeff Colson and Pontus Willfors.

Fabrik Media has won praise for bringing American and international artists to Los Angeles for their annual Photo Independent and Fabrik Expo art fairs, and this year art enthusiasts will descend on The Reef in downtown Los Angeles, October 5-7, 2018 for their new editions.

“We are about empowering all kinds of creative expression,” stated Chris Davies, founder and director of both fairs. “For 2018 we are excited to showcase Skulpturengarten, an indoor sculpture exhibition, curated by Ichiro Irie, and will feature large-scale to monumental, freestanding sculpture works by some of the most exciting and innovative, emerging to mid-career artists from Los Angeles and around the world.”

Skulpturegarten takes its inspiration from the classic sculpture garden, whose origins reach far back as 175,000 years ago in the Bruniquel Cave in France. The works presented will showcase the diversity of materials and approaches from artists such as Jeff Colson, Pontus Willfors, Shusuke Ao, Rochelle Botello, Anibal Catalan, Martin Durazo, Lauren Fejarang, Ashley Hagen, Kellan Barnebey King, Jason Manley, and Abdul Mazid, to name a few.

Equally as interesting and thought-provoking is The Experience Lounge, with an art activation titled, The Sereal Killers, by art duo VALTD, and presented by Cartwheel Art. The Experience Lounge is aimed at killing misconceptions and preconceived notions, along with closed or narrow-minded judgments cast on people, especially women, when often the exact opposite or close to it, is true. Participants will have the chance to become ‘sereal killers’ themselves, all while enjoying a mix of delicious cocktails served by the local legends Los Angeles' Infuse Spirits. VALTD's work can be followed on valtdart.com.

Photo Independent, the longest running photo fair for photographers in the World, is now in its fifth year in Los Angeles. Photo Independent champions a new generation of photographers and has become one of the most significant annual photographic events in the World. This year also marks the launch of Photo Independent in Paris, at the Carrousel de Louvre, November 8-11, 2018.
