PARIS PHOTO moves to the Grand Palais

Paris Photo, now in it fifteenth year, is moving to the Grand Palais, a larger and more impressive location than its old home at the Carrousel du Louvre. The event will also have a new director, Julien Frydman who since 2006, was head of Magnum Photos Paris and since January 2011 a consultant for the LUMA Foundation for Le Parc des Ateliers in Arles. Frydman replaces Guillaume Piens, the former director.
The 2011 edition will run from November 9-13, 2011.
Perhaps this new and considerably larger venue will open the way for the participation of some new and more cutting edge galleries and also provide improved spaces for the Photobook dealers many of whom moved out last year to a new alternative space near Bastille.
