Paris Photo 2015 Gallery Weekend

564b511784463visuel-ppgp2015-portrait2

The 19th edition of the Paris Photo fair had to be abandoned on the 14th November due to the attacks in Paris, but organisers of the fair are now hosting a gallery weekend for those who missed out. The event takes place this weekend in Paris, with Paris Photo releasing the following statement:

‘Following the tragic events that hit Paris and the premature closing of Paris Photo November 14 and 15th, the Paris Photo team thanks its exhibitors for their confidence and shares in the general disappointment of the closing of the 19th edition of Paris Photo after only three days which were to be announced as our most successful to date.

Because such events cannot and must not deprive us of our most important cultural events, at the initiative of the gallery Alain Gutharc, and with the immediate participation of the galleries Les Filles du Calvaire and Françoise Paviot, 54 International and Parisian galleries invite the public to discover their exhibitions in their private venues where the artworks will be displayed as they had been imagined for Paris Photo 2015.

In collaboration and with the support of Paris Photo, participating galleries will be exceptionally open from 10am-8pm Saturday and Sunday November 28-29th. This will be the occasion for collectors and photography aficionados who did not have the opportunity to visit the fair at the Grand Palais, to discover these exceptional artworks within the galleries.’
