photo l.a. returns to the historic Santa Monica Civic Auditorium for its 21st edition on January 12 - 16, 2012. Continuing the discourse on photography’s place in the fine arts, photo l.a. provides dealers from around the globe a platform for the exhibition of vintage masterworks, contemporary photography, as well as video and multimedia installations. This exciting juxtaposition creates the character that is photo l.a.
In addition to our compelling program of lectures, panels, book signings, and special installations, we are pleased to announce Salon de Tableaux, an area of tabletop presentations showcasing vintage, vernacular and unique photography. Also we proudly introduce photoBOOK - a forum with guest reviewers offering feedback to photographers on their book proposals.
During the Martin Luther King holiday weekend, January 12-16, 2012, photo l.a. returns to the landmark Santa Monica Civic Auditorium for the 13th time. As the Getty’s Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945-1980 initiative continues into January, photo l.a. will include installations focusing on post-WWII art created in Southern California. January is also L.A. Arts Month, a collective marketing effort by the city and its arts organizations to attract enthusiasts and collectors to Los Angeles.
Please join us in January for a memorable four days of art, education, and excitement. Check our website reguarly for updates, and join our mailing list for news on ordering tickets, special projects, and events.
