The inaugural edition of PHOTOFAIRS New York, created by Creo in partnership with Angus Montgomery Arts and in collaboration with Photo London Founders Michael Benson and Fariba Farshad, is taking place from September 8-10, 2023 at the Javits Center.
The fair is presenting an expansive view of image-making, from modern masters of lens-based work to the boundary-pushing digital vanguard.
Running alongside The Armory Show, the fair welcomes a highly curated selection of international galleries to present a state-of-the-art view of visual culture. Visitors have the opportunity to explore a wide range of work, from traditional photography to cutting-edge digital art. The fair will also feature a number of special projects, including solo presentations by renowned photographers and large-scale installations.
PHOTOFAIRS New York includes four sectors: Galleries, the main section showcasing modern and/or contemporary artists working across photography-based art; Platform, featuring galleries established for less than eight years or booth presentations of artists under the age of 35; Screen, comprising galleries which showcase a wide range of new media and technology and digital artworks; Film, focused on new filmmaking practices, experimental film or film as an artistic medium.
