Paris Photo is the world’s largest international art fair dedicated to the photographic medium. Presented with the Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD), the new fair will create a transatlantic hub between the two historic centers for photography – Paris and New York thus forming a collective voice and international reference for the photographic medium.
The new fair will capitalize on the strength of the American photography market by expanding and diversifying the fair’s representation of international and cutting-edge galleries and invigorating the community of curators and art professionals throughout the Americas and beyond.
Drawing from the city’s thriving arts scene and rich network of museums and organizations, the New York edition will highlight their indelible impact on the history of the medium and the recognition of its artists. Invited guest curators will organize programming, including exhibitions, conversations, to connect international leaders in the field and advance the understanding and appreciation of fine art photography.
