NEW YORK – The Photography Show, presented by AIPAD (The Association of International Photography Art Dealers) will be held April 5-8, 2018 at Pier 94 in New York City. More than 100 of the world’s leading fine art photography galleries will present museum-quality work including contemporary, modern, and 19th-century photographs, as well as photo-based art, video, and new media. The 38th edition of the Show will commence with a vernissage on April 4, 2018.
As one of the world’s most important annual photography fairs, The Photography Show is the longest running and foremost exhibition dedicated to the photographic medium and is organized by the Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD).
“We are excited to continue the extraordinary momentum from last year’s record breaking show,” said Richard Moore, President, AIPAD, and owner, Richard Moore Photographs. “Our debut at Pier 94 brought more galleries, increased attendance and rave reviews. We are working to make this year’s edition even more compelling, with more international exhibitors, special exhibitions, and new programs.”
A number of special exhibitions will be on view at The Photography Show 2018. An exhibition curated by Elton John entitled A Time for Reflection will include thematic work selected from AIPAD members. Another special exhibition will focus on work about childhood and adolescence from the noted private collection of Joe Baio.
An expanded program of talks and panel discussions featuring daily sessions with leading curators, critics, artists, gallerists, collectors, and journalists will be announced in February.
