Paris Photo Los Angeles, taking place April 25–27 at Paramount Pictures Studios, announces the schedule for the Sound and Vision public program and a robust line-up of book-signings.

An important educational component of the fair, Sound and Vision is composed of two sections: The Conversations and The Screenings.

The Screenings
Curated by independent curator Kevin Moore in partnership with Fotofocus Cincinnati, The Screenings provide visitors exposure to exceptional film and video work. The selection, with both contemporary and historical precedents, provides a breadth of international perspectives with a special emphasis on film/video’s longstanding ties to art photography.

Works are paired and screened in continuous succession throughout the fair in Soundstage 28 at the Paramount Pictures Studios. Pairs have been chosen for the dynamic interplay between the two selected works, and based on similar or contrasting themes, formal motifs, or geographic interests, as well as topics endemic to photography’s discretely defined history: social documentary, performative, and formal modes will be explored within the expanded discourse of film and video.
