Paris Photo Los Angeles, the US edition of the world’s most celebrated art fair for works created in the photographic medium, has taken place at Paramount Pictures Studios April 25th-27th, offering 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, and welcoming more than 16,000 visitors.
81 leading international galleries and booksellers from 18 countries presented historical and contemporary bodies of works by renowned and emerging artists in the legendary Paramount Pictures’ soundstages. The New York Street Backlot, the one-of-a-kind replica of New York City’s streets, has been dedicated to the presentation of cutting-edge solo shows, Young Gallery exhibitions, and bookseller projects, each exhibiting within an exclusive movie set.
The public program is also an important component of the fair. Built around cultural events involving artists, art world professionals, collectors, and cultural institutions, this year’s program has included special exhibitions and the Sound & Vision series of conversations and screenings.
