The art world was all about LA last week, between the Art Los Angeles Contemporary fair at a Santa Monica Airport hangar, the Pacific Standard Time Performance and Public Art Festival (which continues around the city through the 29th), and of course, all the related parties and afterparties (check out our gallery on the Hole's sick warehouse bash). One of the more anticipated events was the kickoff for the main fair, Judy Chicago's re-staging of her 1968 spectacle using 25 tons of dry ice, glow-lit at dusk and dissipating over the weekend, but alas, someone ran a light and totalled our car on the way there (welcome to LA), but check out ALAC's official pics here. Once our nerves and whiplash abided, we got back on the road and checked out the inaugural edition of The Affordable Art Fair, "affordable" in this case, defined as under $10,000 (it's all relative, right?). Above, a photo gallery with details and prices of some of our fave "bargains."
