LA’s Longest Running Art Fair Joins artLA projects
Thursday, January 13, 2011 through Monday, January 17, 2011

Opening Reception benefits the
Wallis Annenberg Department of Photography at LACMA

Since photo l.a. was created in 1992, more than 300 galleries, private dealers and publishers have exhibited and more than 150 lectures and collecting seminars have been presented. Many significant artists have been introduced to the public during the fair. photo l.a. is honored to have played a significant role in the cultural life of Los Angeles and proud to have been the catalyst for numerous exhibitions, monographs, and acquisitions by major institutional and private collections, both locally and internationally. It has been essential in transforming the art/ photography landscape of Los Angeles by increasing public awareness and acceptance and the inclusion of photo-based art in almost all contemporary galleries and museum exhibitions. photo l.a. XX celebrates its 20th Anniversary as the longest running art fair west of New York and the largest photo- based art fair in the country, drawing over 10,000 attendees. It brings together photography dealers from around the globe, displaying the finest contemporary photography, video and multi-media installations along with masterworks from the 19th century.

This is the 48th art fair produced by Stephen Cohen, Director of photo l.a. Its sister fairs include artLA and photo NY. Previous fairs include: photo san francisco, photo MIAMI, photo santa fe, and the first vernacular photography fair in New York City. artLA was created in 2004 as a public event bringing together a mix of national and nternational galleries, artists, collectors and curators for a visual dialogue on the current art scene. Its ongoing commitment to presenting the most challenging art being produced today has led to the creation of artLA projects, an ongoing citywide program of dynamic and innovative installations, exhibitions, seminars and conversations with established and cutting- edge artists in all media.

photo l.a. XX and the launch of artLA projects, is a prelude to a much larger artLA 2011 that will align with the start of the Getty’s Pacific Standard Time Initiative and the Los Angeles Contemporary Art Forum, a new art fair in the fall of 2011 created by the team that produces the Armory Show.
