Now in its 29th year, the L.A. Modernism Show returns to 3Labs Studio in Culver City on May 13 for a weekend of events that benefit the Los Angeles Conservancy, with a new focus on contemporary design objects from the 21st century—and a new name: LA20/21: The Los Angeles Modern Design Show & Sale. This year’s show will include furniture, lighting, sculpture, paintings, jewelry, silver, glass, ceramics, photography, textiles, prints, rugs, posters, vintage clothing and accessories.

Rosemary Krieger, one of the fair’s organizers, says she is most looking forward to new vendors like Red Modern Furniture from Phoenix, Arizona; Pietra Gallery from Mexico City; The 2nd House Objects from L.A.; and Silk Road Modern + Contemporary Rugs from Beverly Hills; as well as returning notables like Reform Gallery, L.A.; Archive, Laguna Hills; NoHo Modern, L.A.; Lisa Cliff Collection, Pasadena; and others. Krieger names her picks: “Billings of L.A. will be presenting a 1958 Volkswagen Karmann-Ghia Convertible. Silk Road Modern + Contemporary Rugs…will be showing rugs from the Uzbek Kilim Collection.”
