photo l.a., celebrating its 20th Anniversary, is the longest-running art fair west of New York and is the largest photo-based art fair in the country with 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.   photo l.a. is pleased to join with artLA projects to present contemporary art galleries as a prelude to a much larger artLA 2011 that will align with the Los Angeles Contemporary Art Forum, a new art fair in the fall of 2011 created by the team that produces the Armory Show.
