The fourth edition of Beyond Eden will once again be hosted by the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall Park this coming October. Beyond Eden is a multi-gallery event celebrating the New Contemporary art movement in Los Angeles put together by Andrew Hosner (co-owner / curator at Thinkspace) and made possible by the City Of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs. The public is invited to attend this special event and admission is free and open to all.

Each successive Beyond Eden event grows larger and larger with average attendance well over 5,000 people for the past three years of the event. The New Contemporary art movement continues to build momentum on a national level and is finally starting to receive mainstream recognition from major institutions and publications the world over. With its foundation firmly planted in Southern California and a patron base here in Los Angeles that has been building over the past several decades, it’s easy to see why Beyond Eden has been welcomed with such open arms by the Los Angeles arts community and has become an anticipated annual event.

Beyond Eden 2013 will showcase the works of four of California's finest New Contemporary art galleries and will be held during the weekend of October 12th and 13th with an opening night celebration planned for Saturday, October 12th. Participating galleries include C.A.V.E. Gallery (Venice, CA), Copro Gallery (Santa Monica, CA), Spoke Art (San Francisco, CA), and Thinkspace (Culver City, CA).

In addition to the works on display from the participating galleries, Beyond Eden 2013 will also feature live painting demonstrations throughout the gallery inside and out alongside a special showcase of Los Angeles street and graffiti artists presented by Thinkspace and curated by local photographer Birdman. This year will also see the tradition continue of honoring those that help to push our movement forward. This year’s honoree will be Greg Escalante (Juxtapoz Magazine / Copro Gallery).
