From January 16-19th, 2014, photo l.a. will present its widest collaboration of photography yet, exhibiting works dating from the 19th century, up through the most cutting edge contemporary photo-based art in LA Marts massive 60,000 square foot Exhibition Hall. photo l.a. 2014 will continue its celebration of the photographic arts, both through the exhibition of internationally renowned galleries and as a platform for education and discussion. Known for its excellent programing, photo l.a. will once again spearhead a unique series of lectures, roundtable discussions and docent tours as a valuable supplement to our exhibitions.
photo l.a. 2014 will combine the photography and arts communities under one roof, truly raising the bar for both the cultural and collecting experiences in Los Angeles. This vast collection, along with a variety of outstanding programming and installations, promises an impressive 23rd edition of the fair.
