photo l.a. returns to the historic Santa Monica Civic Auditorium for its 21st edition January 12 - 16, 2012. Continuing the discourse on photography’s place in the fine arts, photo l.a. provides galleries from around the globe a platform for the exhibition of vintage masterworks and contemporary photography, as well as video and multimedia installations. This exciting juxtaposition creates the unique environment that characterizes photo l.a.
The opening Gala Reception, which will be held January 12, 2012 from 6 pm - 9 pm, benefits the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s Wallis Annenberg Department of Photography. Our special host of the evening will be Moby, with guest DJ Aaron Byrd (KCRW).
Over the past twenty-one years, photo l.a. has exhibited more than three hundred galleries, private dealers and publishers and has presented more than one hundred and fifty lectures and collecting seminars to the public. Our continued efforts to create a dynamic experience for our patrons has not only increased our loyal fan base, but has attracted over eleven thousand interested collectors, curators and dealers of photography each year.
As the Getty’s Pacific Standard Time: Art in LA 1945 - 1980 initiative continues into January, photo l.a. will include installations focusing on post-WWII art created in Southern California. January is also LA Arts Month, a collective effort by the city and its arts organizations to attract enthusiasts and collectors to Los Angeles.
Please join us in January for four memorable days of art, education, and excitement. Check photola.com regularly for updates on ordering tickets, special projects and events. In addition to our compelling program of lectures, panels, book signings, and special installations, we are pleased to present the Salon de Tableaux, an area showcasing installations, museum booths, vintage photography, and artists’ books.
By Thornton Wilder
Starring Helen Hunt
Directed by David Cromer
Oscar, Emmy, and Golden Globe-winner Helen Hunt stars in this groundbreaking new version of Wilder’s iconic American play. Our Town tells the story of young lovers George and Emily, whose life in a small New England town becomes a microcosm of every day life. The wisdom of the play, rendered through a deceptively simple story, makes Our Town an enduring treasure of the American theater. This electrifying new production is directed by Broadway director and MacArthur Fellow David Cromer in his LA debut. Most of the seating for this production will be on stage with the actors.
Opening Night is Wed, Jan 18th. Don't Miss Out!
All audience members are invited to join us after the show at Zengo, one of Santa Monica's newest premiere hot spots located at Santa Monica Place. Come and enjoy scrumptious bites, cocktails, and delicious desserts while mingling with fellow patrons and stars. Valet parking provided.
