ARTBOOK @ Art Los Angeles Contemporary Fair

Visit us January 30 - February 2 at the Barker Hangar, where we present artist Mark Hagen's Ramada Santa Monica bookstore installation! Designed by Hagen to blend his 'space frame' sculptural works with bookshelf fixtures and other custom surfaces, Ramada Santa Monica is titled after provisional shelters of the American Southwest.

Art Los Angeles Contemporary is Los Angeles' premiere international contemporary art fair.
ARTBOOK | D.A.P. is pleased to be an official Program Partner, organizing and hosting book-related events while running ARTBOOK @ Art Los Angeles Contemporary, our highly curated annual pop-up store, presenting a wide selection of contemporary art books keyed to the fair, with a special focus on young and emerging artists and designers from the Los Angeles area.
