ART SAN DIEGO is San Diego’s only contemporary fine art show and has become one of the leading cultural events in Southern California. Since its inception in 2009, Art San Diego has enriched the city each year with compelling, site-specific art projects, art talks and panel discussions, a selection of dynamic and cutting-edge film, video and new media works, and a curated selection of emerging and spotlight artists.

“This year’s theme, [inter-play] has created an exciting platform for incoming artists to interact with guests and create an atmosphere that is compelling, visually appealing and will grab attention of viewers,” said Ann Berchtold, ART SAN DIEGO Founder and Director. “We are very excited for the new additions to this year’s show, it will really ramp up the exposure of the festival, as well as bring in guests from different areas around the world.”

New this year, ART SAN DIEGO will feature ArtSpot International Art Fair— a show within a show. ArtSpot International is replicating a model introduced during Miami Art Week last year, and will present carefully  selected modern, contemporary and cutting-edge galleries with a strong Latin-American emphasis curated by Aldo Castillo. Castillo is one of the most respected authorities of modern and contemporary art and has overseen over 250 international art exhibitions.
