Art Palm Springs to welcome a record-setting group of international galleries to 2017 art fair in Palm Springs
PALM SPRINGS, Calif. February 3, 2017 – Over 70 galleries and special exhibits from around the U.S., South America and Europe will converge on Palm Springs for Art Palm Springs on February 16 through 19 at the Palm Springs Convention Center.

“This year’s list of galleries is truly impressive,” said Donna Davies, Vice President, Art Group for Urban Expositions. Along with the expanding number of galleries, the show is also expanding the number of talks, tours and special events throughout the weekend. “Our goal is to offer guests the opportunity to immerse themselves in the galleries, artists and Palm Springs for the weekend,” she added. Each year the show draws thousands of unique visitors to the convention center over the course of the Presidents’ Day weekend.

The fair will debut new work by several artists including Rachel Lee Hovnanian, Memorial for Poor Teddy, exhibited by Imago Galleries. Hovnanian is known for her interactive installations including Perfect Baby. In “Memorial for Poor Teddy,” viewers will climb into an enormous bed overflowing with hundreds of teddy bears, and in doing so instantly disrupt a dormant arrangement. Drawn in by the tactile nature of the installation, viewers then become the object of the conversation as they are surrounded by a symbol of early childhood incongruously paired with markers of their digital lives: “tags” around the bears’ necks name a smartphone app the toy has been “#replacedby.”  Elsewhere in the installation, a stainless steel reflective sculpture of a slain teddy bear with a knife protruding from its chest is illuminated by neon wall sculptures that state, “YBR / You’ve been replaced” and “I love my phone more than you / ILMPMTY.”
