Incredible Photos From L.A.'s Art Fair | The Atlantic Cities — review

Incredible Photos From L.A.'s Art Fair
By Mark Byrnes

The second annual Paris Photo Los Angeles will exhibit an incredible collection of photography from around the world.

The fair, which takes place inside Paramount Pictures Studios from April 25 to 27, will take advantage of its surroundings, using a police station studio for the LAPD archival images we shared earlier this week.

A wide range of styles and periods will be represented, including anonymous works from a mid-century American photographer, the more recent and awe-inspiring aerial photography of Edward Burtynsky and nearly every kind of image in-between:

Photography collectors and photography lovers — get ready for lots of inspiration and possible visual overload.

Paris Photo Los Angeles, the second US edition of the world’s most celebrated art fair for the best of the best in the global photographic marketplace opens this month — and there is lots to see.

LensCulture is proud to have a long relationship with Paris Photo, and we're thrilled to offer a full-screen slideshow preview here of 68 photos. (Consider this preview as just an appetizer for the show itself which will feature thousands of today's most marketable photographs.)

This year's edition will feature several unique exhibitions and installations. Taking advantage of Paramount Pictures Studios' vintage sound stages, selected galleries will each have an exclusive movie set in which to present their works. For example, the New York Street Backlot, created as a replica of New York City's streets, will be dedicated to the presentation of cutting-edge solo shows, Young Gallery exhibitions, and bookseller projects.

A critical part of Paris Photo Los Angeles is the "Sound and Vision" public programming series, composed of "The Conversations" and "The Screenings". The Conversations, organized by independent curator Douglas Fogle, will bring together notable curators and contemporary artists for a discussion of the practice of image-making. Taking place in Sherry Lansing Theatre, participants will include artists and curators: Walead Beshty, Simon Castets, Doryun Chong, Leigh Ledare, Stephen Shore, Taryn Simon, Jeff Wall and others who will be announced shortly.

The Screenings will be curated by independent curator Kevin Moore in partnership with FotoFocus, Cincinnati. The program pushes the boundary between photography and the moving image by offering visitors exposure to all sorts of exceptional film and video work. The program will have a special emphasis on film and video’s historic ties to art photography. Works will be screened continuously in a series of shipping containers placed on the Paramount Pictures Studios lot. The selection, offering a breadth of international perspectives, will include both contemporary artists and historical precedents: Slater Bradley, Bruce Conner, Moyra Davey, Rainer Ganahl, Rosalind Nashashibi, Nicolas Provost, Julian Rosefeldt and many others.

Photography has arrived in New York along with Spring

Many events for photo fans and collectors are going on in the city these days. The main one is the annual AIPAD fair at the Park Avenue Armory, which runs from April 10th through the 13th. In its 34th edition, the show presents 84 galleries, including many from abroad.

For fans and collectors of photography, April, 2014, is definitely the month. A lot is going on in many locales in New York and across the country, and Paris-Photo-L.A. is about to open—all of this following the early-bird photography auctions at Christies, Sothebys, Phillips, and other houses. ICP offers a generous selection of experimentation in contemporary work in its group show What is Photography, while the Morgan Library has put on display, for the first time, its own collection.
Certainly, the main event on a national scale and certainly in Manhattan is the annual AIPAD fair at the Park Avenue Armory, which runs this year from April 10th through the 13th. In its 34th edition, the show presents 84 galleries, including many from abroad and some that have never before participated.


Other attempts to appropriate commercial images (especially of women) or to respond to them abound, not all convincing. It took some explanations for me to “get” a heavily saturated, rather large image of flowering condoms with butterflies artificially placed in the background by Wendy Small at von Lintel Gallery (L.A.). Title Morning Glory. It’s certainly something that derails you. In a related vein, Matthew Brandt, known for his salt-prints employing semen and other unorthodox materials, is at Yossi Milo, a gallery currently displaying his photographs incorporating dust from demolished major structures. In a digital world, Brandt turns his attention to fading photographic materials and processes.

Top AIPAD Recommendations: Farrah Karapetian at Von Lintel Gallery | GalleryIntell

By Kristina Nazarevskaia

At this point you should be well-familiar with photograms. From our very first interview with Adam Fuss where he explained his process of placing biological objects (live snakes, rabbit intestines, etc.) directly onto large-scale photo-sensitive paper to create colorful chemical reactions, to Alisson Rossiter and her Richard Serra-inspired monochromes, to Man Ray and some of the first ever experimentations with camera-less photography. This year’s AIPAD Photography Show in New York is full of works by contemporary artists who are further exploring the surfaces and the techniques of this timeless process.

Von Lintel Gallery, now based in Los Angeles, is showing several amazing photograms by a California-based artist Farrah Karapetian who used ice to create her abstractions. The images, titled Slips were really experiments, initially created for an installation titled Rock, Paper, Scissors at the California-Pacific Triennial and shown at the Orange County Museum of Art.

In an interview with galleryIntell Farrah explained that she has been using transparent materials like resin and glass in her photograms since 2007. Primarily because they allowed her to achieve a different level of detail, volume and surface than solid objects. She turned to ice because of the desire to emulate various rock surfaces and found the medium to be generous in its abundance of air bubbles and surface irregularities. The process involved recording the shape of the object using her color enlarger, cutting it out and adhering the rock-shaped image onto the wall to create a semblance of the ruins.

As the ice cubes began to melt, this shift from a solid state into a liquid one, this “swishing revolt” as she called it, was the “happy material accident” the artist was ready to accept. The images that eventually made it into the present series were the ones that she “could learn from and ones that could hold their page compositionally.” Naturally drawn to warm colors I asked about the origin of the glowing ochres in several of the images. How did she achieve this color? It turned out that the inspiration came from the Anasazi ruins located in southern Nevada, Utah and Colorado. She called the color “Anasazi Gold.”

The Art Set: No Rules
by Charlie Scheips

I have to say that this winter has been my worst in memory. The months have seemed so dreary that little appealed to me to make the effort to go out. But the past two days have restored my interest in New York. Hope it lasts — as my mother used to say.

Wednesday night I went to the preview of AIPAD — the most important art fair for photography dealers in the country. In the old days it used to be held in the New York Hilton and while I have nothing bad to say about the Hilton it was a dreary affair of ugly booths and loads of bins of photographs that a motley crew of photograph enthusiasts picked through as if in a flea market.

Since 2006, AIPAD’s fair has been held at the Park Avenue Armory and is so much the better for it. I have to say, despite my long history with the photography world, I have a love/hate relationship with it. Firstly, I am a lover of painting and the art of drawing that the photography has obscured in its dominance of how we “think” we see the world. For many, photography is the “most vivid depiction of reality” — even though almost everyone knows that a photo can be doctored up with ease today — just as Stalin erased Trotsky or the latest faux celebrity is digitally Botox-ed beyond recognition.

What I love about photography is how an individual eye can frame the world in a millisecond and how for the past two centuries it has become the preeminent document of historical record.
