The First Annual:
Malibu Annual


August 28 - August 30, 2009

Gallery-organized fair featuring work by internationally exhibiting artists to be held at the Malibu Country Mart August 28 – 30, 2009.

Seven Los Angeles-based contemporary art galleries are going to the beach! China Art Objects, Chung King Projects, Circus Gallery, The Company, Eighth Veil, Parker Jones, and Sister are pleased to announce the first Malibu Annual Contemporary Art Fair.

Taking place at the Malibu Country Mart from August 28 – 30, the Malibu Annual brings together 7 of the most exciting contemporary galleries in LA for an art fair the likes of which have not been seen in Malibu. This gallery-initiated special event brings fresh energy to the idea of a contemporary art fair, and will showcase the work of over 40 internationally exhibiting artists. Free and open to the public, the Malibu Annual will premiere for one weekend in the heart of Malibu at the Malibu Country Mart ( 

It’s fitting that this art fair will transpire during the hottest part of the summer in a city that draws millions of visitors to its beaches to cool off and relax. With artists working in a variety of media (painting, photography, sculpture, video, drawing, and installation), the Malibu Annual will offer the public a glimpse of Southern California’s freshest galleries. Held in a 4,000 square foot space that once housed a high school, each participating gallery will commandeer and re-invent a classroom, and present works both from gallery-represented artists and special projects made specifically for the Malibu Annual. In addition, the Malibu Annual will feature performance art projects and video screenings for fair visitors to enjoy. A schedule of performances will be posted on the website.
