Art Los Angeles Contemporary has named the 102 exhibitors that will take over the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica for the fair’s 10th edition, which runs from February 13 to February 17. For this iteration the fair has added two new sections, “Salon” and “Publishers”; ALAC has also overhauled its branding this year, and will have a new floor plan. The fair has also tapped Charlotte Walters to be its managing director.

The main galleries section will include 64 exhibitors, with 21 coming from the L.A. area. The Publishers section, titled “Moveable Types” will feature 24 presses and book shops from across the world, and will be organized under the auspices of Frances Horn, a Brussels-based curator who founded the now-defunct art book fair PA/PER VIEW, which was held at the Belgian contemporary art museum WIELS. The “Salon” section of the fair will be devoted to curated offerings. This year, ALAC has brought in the Berlin-based curator and former gallerist Claudia Rech to organize the section, which will take the title “The Academy.”

This is the first time ALAC will coincide with two new fairs being held in the city, Frieze Los Angeles and Felix LA. Notable absentees from ALAC this year include San Francisco’s Altman Siegel Gallery, São Paulo’s Vermelho, and L.A. galleries Ghebaly Gallery, David Kordansky Gallery, Kayne Griffin Corcoran, Night Gallery, and Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects, all of whom are participating in Frieze L.A.

“After ten years, I recognize the impact we have made locally and internationally,” ALAC founder and director Tim Fleming said in a statement. “To walk into a collector’s home and see a work from a past edition of our fair is such a pleasure because it solidifies for me how we’ve achieved our mission by supporting galleries and informing collections. Our 10th anniversary is a chance for us to recommit to who we are: content-forward, trusted but inventive, international and L.A.”

The new floor plan for the fair will be designed by Jerry Garcia, of the Seattle-based Olson Kundig firm, and graphic designer Brian Roettinger has created the fair’s new visual identity.

Walters joins ALAC after previously being the associate director of the New Art Dealers Alliance, which produces annual fairs in Miami and previously in New York and Cologne. In her role, she will look to grow the fair’s audience, create new business initiatives, and oversee the fair’s existing partnerships.

“I look forward to expanding on ALAC’s legacy as an established independent fair that celebrates the strength of L.A.’s unique cultural scene on an international scale,” Walters said in a statement. “And I’m excited to soon announce the curatorial programs and global partnerships we have established for the 10th edition.”
