Los Angeles 2015

"From May 1st through 3rd, the Fair presents 79 premier art galleries and specialized art-book dealers at Paramount Pictures Studios in Hollywood. It is one of the world’s most unique art fairs and provides an incredible opportunity for collectors, exhibitors and enthusiasts alike to experience and discover contemporary and historic works within the ambiance of the mythical soundstages and movie sets of the New York Street backlot. Reuniting exhibitors from 17 countries worldwide, the Fair proposes a panorama exploring how artists have been and are using photography and moving image. For 2015, a focus is made on presentations dedicated to the work of one artist with 33 gallery solo shows, highlighting both emerging artists and cutting-edge young galleries. In support of young talent, Paris Photo Los Angeles announces “INTRODUCING” Young California Photographer Award, in partnership with J.P. Morgan Private Bank. This award provides an opportunity to identify the talents of tomorrow and honor the work of one M.F.A. candidate enrolled in an art school in California.

An exhibition of the work of the finalists and award winner is presented at the Fair. After the success of last year’s UNEDITED LAPD exhibition, the program returns with CALIFORNIA UNEDITED !, unveiling an exceptional collection of 19th‑century photographs from the R.J. Arnold Archive, curated by Anthony Lepore and supported by amanasalto. The Fair program also includes “SOUND & VISION.” The Conversations and The Screenings offering visitors a wide array of intellectual perspectives on the use of images from some of the leading international artists and curators working today. The artist conversation series is organized by independent curators Douglas Fogle and Hanneke Skerath."
