Instrumental in past Littletopia programming is low-brow pioneer, gallerist and Juxtapoz Magazine co-founder Greg Escalante, who passed away unexpectedly earlier this year, sending shockwaves through the entire contemporary art world. Juxtapoz Magazine will pay tribute to the icon and his legacy this year throughout the Littletopia fair, including a sponsored bar featuring a site-specific mural by Jillian Evelyn, as well as an altar.
For the first time ever, Superchief Gallery LA will participate in the fair. They will be showcasing the centerpiece of their most recent exhibition: a 22 foot long “space boat” created by Bunnie Reiss for her “Space Angels” solo show, made in the memory of the victims of the Ghost Ship art community fire that happened in Oakland last December. After the awards ceremony on Thursday, January 11, Superchief Gallery will host the official after party at their space in downtown Los Angeles.
Each year, the entrance to the Littletopia art fair is marked by an iconic archway. In 2018, the archway will be produced by Dennis McNett (aka Wolfbat), an internationally renown muralist and installation artist known for his incredible details in his psychedelic style.
