We are pleased to again be exhibiting at the longest-running international photography fair on the West Coast, the Photo LA Fair. This year the fair takes place January 30 – February 2, at The Barker Hangar, 3021 Airport Ave, Santa Monica. Monroe Gallery will be located in booth #A02, just to the right of the main fair entrance.

The gallery will be exhibiting a selection from the just-concluded acclaimed exhibit “La Dolce Vita” that celebrated Tony Vaccaro’s 97th birthday alongside photographs by Ida Wyman (1926–2019), whose work for Life, Look, and other magazines went unrecognized for decades. A special exhibit will showcase work of the new wave of fearless frontline photojournalists that are covering 21st-century events.

The fair will feature photography from more than 60 local and international galleries and dealers, but will also welcome collectives, leading not-for-profits, art schools, and global booksellers. Moreover, the fair will present renowned lectures, panel discussions, special installations, and docent tours.
The Private Vernissage will take place on Thursday, January 30th, from 4 to 6 p.m, while the Opening Night Preview will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. The doors of the fair will be open to the public from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.

Tickets and more information can be found here.
