Luis De Jesus Los Angeles is very pleased to announce our participation in ART LOS ANGELES CONTEMPORARY, the International Fair of Contemporary Art, taking place at the Barker Hanger in Santa Monica, California, from January 27-30, 2011.

The Gallery will present Federico Solmi's monumental video installation 'Douche Bag City' (edition 1 of 5), comprised of 15 individual video animations with sound and custom designed frames. This particular edition was produced and exhibited at 'The Dissolve' - the 2010 SITE Santa Fe International Biennial. It is the last available edition. Federico Solmi will be present at the booth during the fair.

In addition, the Gallery will present a suite of eight new 'scratched' and silver spray-painted photographs titled 'Framing Exercises' by L.A. artist Christopher Russell. Each photograph is a unique, one-of-a-kind work whose ornate scroll designs Russell has 'etched' by hand, and are inspired by the border illustrations created by William Morris for a 19th century edition of the Canterbury Tales. A similar pair was featured in his sold-out solo presentation at NADA in Miami this past December.

We will also present new abstract paintings by Heather Gwen Martin (her recent solo show at the Gallery was selected as one of the 'Top Ten' exhibitions in Southern California in 2010), and a new limited edition ceramic and neon sculpture by David Adey, whose work is currently on view in the 2010 California Biennial.

We look forward to seeing you at the Fair.
