Paris Photo 2011 Opens November 10

Open this year from November 10th through November 13th, Paris Photo celebrates its 15th anniversary by moving to a new location, the Nave of the Grand Palais, a spectacular venue like no other in the French capital for presenting works by photographic artists, thus marking a major turning point for this important international event. Paris Photo 2011 takes African photography as its special theme, paying tribute to the rich breadth and diversity of work produced by the continent’s creative talent in this field, from Bamako to Cape Town. A total of 118 international galleries, representing France and 29 other countries, have been selected to present the best of nineteenth-century, modern and contemporary photography in the heart of Paris.

Taking on greater prominence with its move to the Grand Palais, Paris Photo continues to develop activities for all of its visitors, always with the objective of making a vital contribution to, and exploring interconnections with, the city’s cultural programming. For example, Paris Photo organises personalised itineraries for its VIPs through the city’s cultural institutions and other venues so as to treat them to the best of what the current Paris arts scene has to offer. Again this year, Paris Photo aims to welcome the participation of over thirty cultural institutions, organisations and patrons, including the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris and the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, the Centre Pompidou in Paris and Metz, the Photographer’s Gallery and the Tate in London, the International Center of Photography (ICP) and the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), the Musée d’Art Moderne et Contemporain (MAMCO) in Geneva and the Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne who have already announced their presence at Paris Photo 2011. –
