November 9th - 12th 2017
Grand Palais, Paris
For its 21st edition, Paris Photo will present at the Grand Palais 190 exhibitors from 29 countries. The fair will be composed of 151 galleries offering visitors a complete panorama of the best of photography from the 19th century to today. Another sector is dedicated to large formats while the book sector will reunite numerous publishers and art book dealers. Paris Photo also launches a film and video sector that will be held at MK2 Grand Palais (located within the Grand Palais). The question of different practices and uses of images will be the focus of theses screenings.
This year, Paris Photo proposes to visit the fair through the eyes of an exceptional personality, Karl Lagerfeld. By selecting his personal favourites, the visionary and a cultural icon will create a journey throughout the fair and the thousands of artworks on view, as well as a special edition book published by Steidl. This is an original way for the public to contemplate the artworks exhibited by the gallerists and curators, while discovering the aesthetic universe of Karl Lagerfeld.
