Paris Photo Events in Los Angeles
Expositions France, and Julien Frydman, Director of Paris Photo are pleased
to announce the creation of Paris Photo L.A.
The first edition of Paris Photo L.A will be held in Los Angeles from April
24th to 28th, 2013 and will bring together a selection of 80 international
galleries at the heart of the iconic site of Paramount Pictures Studios in
Over the past 16 years, Paris Photo has become a milestone player in the
art world today including photography professionals, collectors, artists as
well as a wider audience.
The 2011 edition held for the first time in Paris at the Grand Palais
presented more than 135 exhibitors and attracted over 50,000 visitors.
Based upon this success, Reed Expositions has decided to move forward and
chose Los Angeles as its first site to expand Paris Photo abroad.
Los Angeles is now considered as an international art capital and
definitely the most iconic city of image worldwide. It is home to major
international cultural institutions and considered today as a hub for the
entire art scene, artists, galleries and major collectors.
In this unique creative environment, Los Angeles offers an extremely
promising context confirming the fair's unique position internationally.
Paramount Pictures Studios, who are celebrating their 100th anniversary
this year, is considered the ideal emblematic location to host the first
ever international extension of the fair. Paramount has forged a
significant place in the 20th and 21st century's cinematic references. In
this unique environment on the West Coast, the fair will continue to
question photography and its connections to the concepts of image.
Paris Photo L.A will bring together all creative trends in photography,
including the avant-garde. The program will be built around cultural events
involving all major actors within the art world (artists, dealers, private
collections, cultural institutions and art enthusiasts).
The full program of Paris Photo L.A will be announced in Fall 2012.
