“The new L.A. art fair” Paramount Ranch is running this weekend at their Agoura Hills, CA location, opening tomorrow night and running until February 1.
Located in the rolling grasslands just outside LA, the cluster of desert buildings know as Paramount Ranch was originally a Paramount Pictures film set, used intermittently over the years for an array of films and programs. Still equipped with a Western-style Sheriff’s office, a blacksmith, and a salon, the location is now running it’s second annual art fair, described by organizer Liz Craft as something “between an art fair, a party, a curated show and a performance”.
While last year felt more like an exhibition than a fair, this year brings a stacked list of contributing artists – including Carlos/Ishikawa, Evelyn Yard, Truth & Consequences and Project Native Informant – as well as almost 20 projects and performances over the two-day event (including Amy Yao, Amanda Ross-Ho, Oscar Tuazon). The fair wraps up with a “showdown” after-party on February 1 with a set of music performances.
