Photographic Art Fair
Paris Photo – Los Angeles
“ Do you want to go to Paris with me? Watch this Video…You’ll be in Paris at a wonderful Photographic Art Fair. Then you can meet me in Los Angeles in April and we’ll do this art fair together.
Paris Photo, Europe’s most celebrated photographic art fair for works created in the photographic medium, launches in Los Angeles, California in April 2013.
When: April 25 – 28, 2013
Paramount Pictures Studios
A selection of 80 international galleries to come together at the historic Paramount Pictures Studios in Hollywood.
“Paris Photo’s success in Europe since its first edition in 1997 has been overwhelming. At the same time as the division between collectors of contemporary and modern art and collectors of photography has diminished, so too has there been a breakthrough of artists incorporating photography into their artistic practice.
Now is the time to bring Paris Photo to the U.S., and Los Angeles is the ideal city in which to launch. Not only is Los Angeles home to the creation of moving images, but the city also boasts a rich history of visual iconography. Further, Los Angeles is now an undisputed international art capital with remarkable museums, a vibrant gallery scene, and art schools. It is a city populated by working artists, engaged collectors, dynamic curators, international art students, and a culturally minded public. We are thrilled to bring Paris Photo to Los Angeles and Paramount Pictures Studios,” comments Julien Frydman, Director of Paris Photo.
Paramount Pictures Studios, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary in show business this year, is considered the ideal emblematic location to host the first-ever international extension of Paris Photo, Photographic Art Fair. Paramount has forged a significant place in 20th and 21st century cinematic references.
Participants to the Photographic Art Fair will be selected by the following international gallery committee:
Daniel Blau, Daniel Blau Gallery, Munich; Frish Brandt, Fraenkel Gallery, San Francisco; Philip Martin, Cherry and Martin, Los Angeles; Benjamin Trigano, M+B, Los Angeles; and Eduardo Brandão, Galeria Vermelho, São Paulo.
Applicants will be able to participate in one or more of the Photographic Art Fair’s sections, which are being curated around Paramount Pictures Studios’ unique and historic venues.
Blue Sky Tank, Main Hall
Located at the entrance to Paramount Pictures Studios by the Melrose Gate and in front of the famous “Paramount Blue Sky,” the Blue Sky Tank structure is the Main Hall of the Fair.
New York Street Backlot, Solo Show section
The New York Street Backlot is dedicated to the presentation of approximately 25 cutting edge solo shows. This replica of New York City offers amazing opportunities to present a specific body of work by one artist. Each selected gallery will be allocated one of the exclusive “sets” to create a solo exhibition.
This section will take place in the heart of the Hollywood industry and expand the boundaries between photography and moving images, showcasing work by historical and contemporary artists working in the medium of video.
Program details for Paris Photo Los Angeles will be announced over the next several months. more…
