Contemporary Art Galleries

Los Angeles is not only known, but is revered for the cultural diversity of the area, so it’s no shock that they praise, uplift, and help enhance their surrounding art community. One of the most incredible ways to experience this area is to explore the cultural contributions. Offering more museums and art galleries than any city in the US, Los Angeles has a flourishing gallery landscape. This community’s dedication to the arts can be seen with their extremely involved, robust, and engaging arts commission. Their focus is to “foster excellence, diversity, vitality, understanding and accessibility of the arts in Los Angeles County”. There are numerous other agencies and groups that focus on spotlighting not only galleries in the area, but also various other forms of cultural activities for everyone. Contemporary Art Galleries are no exception.

Contemporary Art Galleries in the Los Angeles area are committed to showcasing beautiful works of art from the Contemporary period. This era is period specific in that it is artwork from the present period of time. Including and developing from Postmodern Art, Contemporary art is synonymous with modern and current pieces. This gives Contemporary Art Galleries the free range to highlight artists from whatever is currently being produced (or has been produced during the audience’s lifetime). Ever changing, this focus allows artists, collectors, and arts organizations the ability to ever expand their knowledge and collection of Contemporary pieces. It also facilitates the use of any art form, medium, focus, style, and the like. Essentially, there is no set “box” in which works conform.

Since there is no set standard or style of Contemporary art, galleries can showcase any current form of art that does not mimic a previous standard. And even those impressionists are considered Contemporary because the actual art was created currently during our lifetime. That being said, however, there is a starting period for this movement. Said to loosely begin in the 1960s to 1970s, this cuts off the Postmodern era and makes way for Contemporary art to thrive. While largely encompassing of various styles, influences such as globalization, medical endeavors, feminism, and diversity in cultures can be observed.
