Bypassing the traditional gallery system, stARTup connects hungry art buyers to highly curated up-and-coming artists. There, you will discover over 60 artists – selected by art world experts – who transform hotel rooms into individual exhibition spaces and offer their works for sale to art lovers of all levels.

stARTup LA takes place at hip and stylish Kinney Venice Beach hotel, which is less than a mile from the Venice Beach Boardwalk and walking distance to Abbott Kinney's shopping district. stARTup is held the same weekend as two major gallery fairs: Frieze Los Angeles at Paramount Pictures Studio, and Art Los Angeles Contemporary at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica.
