Paris Photo 2012: Le Grand Palais

15 - 18 November 2012

Please come visit M+B at Stand C15 where we will be exhibiting work by gallery artists Andrew Bush, Jessica Eaton, Sam Falls, Ron Galella, Hugh Holland, Mona Kuhn, Jean-Baptiste Mondino, Robert Polidori and Alex Prager.

The Fair will welcome for the second year at the Grand Palais 128 galleries (36 among them are newcomers) and 23 specialists of Photography books. A renewed international selection emphasizing the diversity and quality of the artists and works presented.

This unique panorama comes again with an ambitious programming. The exhibitions “Recent Acquisitions”, “Private Collection” and “Open Book” will enable everyone to appreciate better what is at stake in photographic creation.

For the first time, Paris Photo puts in place an original journey within the galleries: “Paris Photo vu par...”, which will be entrusted to a different personality each year.

In 2012, it is David Lynch that Paris Photo entrusts with the task of choosing from among the works exhibited by the gallery owners. The resulting journey of that selection will be identified in the Fair and it will be possible to follow it, notably on the Paris Photo app. An original way for the public to contemplate the works whilst at the same time discovering David Lynch’s aesthetic universe.

This year the Paris Photo Platform features 4 days of conferences directed by Roxana Marcoci, Curator of Photography at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, with the special contribution of Paul Holdengräber, Director of "LIVE from The New York Public Library."

Structured as an experimental platform for critical discussions, the Paris Photo Platform engages in dynamic and robust debates about the expanded field and perspectives of photography. Participants feature an international roster of leading artists, architects, filmmakers, cultural historians, and theorists in the field exchanging ideas on the relational contexts in which photography operates today.
