Californians: Have you ever wanted to attend Paris Photo, but couldn’t face the airfare, jet lag, or chance of a general strike?  Paris Photo, the international art fair, will launch its first event in the US next year. The organizers of Paris Photo, which is managed by Reed Expositions France, yesterday announced the creation of Paris Photo L.A., featuring roughly 80 French and international galleries exhibiting inside the 100-year-old Studios at Paramount in Los Angeles from April 24 to 28, 2013.

Paris Photo, which takes place each November in Paris, includes an art fair that last year lured 140 galleries to exhibit at the Grand Palais, plus portfolio reviews, the Aperture Photobook Awards, and a lot of networking opportunities in venues around the city. In the car-dependant city of Los Angeles, the fair will be centered on a single, sprawling location. A full schedule of events and a list of exhibitors will be announced this fall.

The timing of the fair looks likely to overlap with the Month of Photography Los Angeles (MOPLA), which was launched in 2009 to showcase the Los Angeles photo community through interconnected exhibitions, seminars and a portfolio review.

The full announcement of Paris Photo Los Angeles is available here as a PDF.

    Hi There Pdnpulse,
    Speaking of which, Madonna’s 2008 Sticky and Sweet tour is packing out stadiums across Europe, in readiness for her tour that will be unleashed here in October. Her shows have been selling well, and many shows are near sell-outs. In Los Angeles, her only show is scheduled for 6 November 2008 and will be held at Dodger Stadium, and if you act quickly you can snare some tickets at reasonable prices.
    Keep up the good work
