Beyond Eden Contemporary Art Fair at Barnsdall

Beyond Eden is a new art fair celebrating the latest movement in contemporary art in Los Angeles. Held at Barnsdall Park, the two-day affair should prove to be an impressive effort in bringing together local, modern works representing 15 local galleries. An Artists’ Village will showcase live painting in-the-flesh, live screen printing and live performance art. And what is an art fair without food? A few trucks will be in attendance for your culinary (or pure hunger) sensibilities including Nom Nom Truck, Dosa Truck, Green Truck, Coolhaus and Gastrobus.

The featured showcase of the fair is “Heroes and Villains” by Tatiana Wills and Roman Cho with photographic portraits of emerging as well as established figures from the pop surrealist, graffiti and alt-comic book worlds. Throughout the fair, works from artists such as Liz McGrath, Shepard Fairey, Nate Frizzell and Tm Gratkowski will be on display.

On Sunday, there will be a special screening of Scribble08, a 48-minute art doc film featuring Clayton Brothers, Martha Rich, Jeff Soto, Joe Sorren, Camille Rose Garcia, and Kevin Christy from Murphy Fine Art Films. Peep below for the full schedule, or visit the Beyond Eden website. What a great, affordable way to spend your weekend and get involved with the local art movement.
