Art Nerd New York | Los Angeles

Paris Photo Los Angeles opens TODAY!!

My favorite LA art fair opens today featuring excellent photography from 80 galleries around the world and photography lovers, actors, dealers, celebrities and art nerds! Paris Photo Los Angeles is located at one of the most interesting fair locations: Paramount Pictures Studios in Hollywood. Today is the Press/VIP opening but the fair is open all weekend — #ParisPhotoLA #PPLA2015 are best hashtags to track down images of real-time-action — we’re hoping Orlando Bloom and Alexander Skarsgård will be there!

2015-ParisPhotoLA-Wide

From May 1st through 3rd, the Fair will present 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 will be
made on presentations dedicated to the work of one artist with over 30 gallery solo shows, highlighting both emerging artists and cutting edge young galleries.
