artfairs inc., producer of the highly acclaimed art fairs photo Miami, ART LA, photo san Francisco and photo new york, is pleased to announce that photo l.a. 2008, the 17th Annual International Los Angeles Photographic Art Exposition, which will take place January 10-13, 2008. artfairs inc. also announces that this highly anticipated event–popular among collectors and curators alike–is moving to a larger location: the 35,000 square foot Barker Hangar at the Santa Monica Airport. The new event space will allow for larger booths and an improved lighting system, producing a clean, modern backdrop against which to display more photo-based art, including digital and video than ever before. The Barker Hangar, located at 3021 Airport Avenue in Santa Monica, also will comfortably accommodate a crowd in excess of 10,000 people–a necessity as photo l.a. has become one of the country’s most popular art fairs and will coincide with Golden Globes week in January 2008. The exhibition will be open to the public Friday, January 11 and Saturday, January 12 from 11:00 to 7:00 p.m., and Sunday, January 13 from 11:00 to 6:00 p.m.

At the opening night reception scheduled for Thursday, January 10 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m., artfairs, inc. will welcome to Los Angeles, and photo l.a. 2008, the new Department Head and Curator of Photography at LACMA, Charlotte Cotton. Renowned architectural photographer Julius Shulman will be honored with photo l.a.’s inaugural lifetime achievement award in association with The Center — a nonprofit organization that honors, supports and provides opportunity for gifted and committed photographers. Proceeds from the opening night reception will benefit the Photography Department of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
