Paris Photo Los Angeles is the US edition of the world’s most celebrated art fair for works created in the photographic medium. The Fair is held annually each spring at the Paramount Pictures Studios, the ideal setting to explore how artists have been and are using photography and moving image in their work in the 20th and 21st centuries. In 2013 the Fair hosted 81 leading galleries and art book dealers from 18 countries world-wide and welcomed more than 16,000 visitors.
Exhibitors presented historical and contemporary bodies of works, cutting edge solo shows, and book projects by renowned and emerging artists in the legendary Paramount Pictures’ soundstages and the New York Street Backlot’s exclusive movie set replicas of New York City’s streets.
The public program is an integral component of the fair. Built around cultural events involving artists, art world professionals, collectors, and cultural institutions, the 2013 program included the Sound & Vision series of conversations and screenings as well as the UNEDITED! exhibition with photographic material from the LAPD Archives and a special tribute to Actor/Director/Legend, Dennis Hopper.
