As Paris Photo moved from Le Louvre to the Grand Palais in the French capital, its organisers have unveiled the first US edition of the art fair to be held in Los Angeles next April.
This first edition will bring together a selection of 80 French and international galleries at the Paramount Studios on Melrose Avenue in Hollywood.
"Los Angeles is now considered as an international art capital and definitely the most iconic city of image. It is home to major international cultural institutions and considered today as a hub for the entire art scene, artists, galleries and collectors," reads a statement. "In this unique creative environment, Los Angeles offers a real extremely promising context to affirm the fair's unique position internationally."
The organisers add: "Paris Photo L.A will undertake to represent all the currents in photography, including the most avant-garde. The program will be defined in relationship with the cultural events of the city and its principal stakeholders - private collections, cultural institutions etc."
The full program of Paris Photo L.A will be announced later this year.
Paris Photo, which is organised by Reed Expositions and directed by Julien Frydman, is looking to looking to expand its reach internationally, hinting that Los Angeles might just be the first off-shoot of the popular photographic art fair.
