PHOTOFAIRS New York is a new contemporary art fair dedicated to photo-based works, digital art and new media. Taking place at the Javits Center, Manhattan’s West Side, the Fair will present a state-of-the-art view of visual culture.
The Fair’s strong curatorial approach will create a new platform where photography and new technologies intersect. It will provide a dedicated space to explore new trends in the contemporary art market from fine art photo-based works to experimental filmmaking, VR and NFTs.
PHOTOFAIRS New York will connect collectors and visitors with international galleries and boundary-pushing artists inviting discourse and interaction.
New York’s enthusiasm for visual culture is seen through its strong and longstanding gallery scene, with more galleries representing photographers in the city than anywhere else in the world. A place for cultural enrichment, New York has made an impressive contribution to the medium’s development through its public collections and museum holdings being some of the finest in the world.
The United States holds the largest global market for photography and New York is home to more than half of the world’s high-end collectors and patrons of photography, making the city the ideal location for a contemporary fair championing photo-based works and digital art.
PHOTOFAIRS New York will enhance the city’s already rich cultural offering in September and provide a strong draw for visitors and collectors.
Aiming to appeal to established collectors and a new, fast-growing, generation of buyers, the Fair will be accompanied by an extensive VIP program including exclusive events, curator-led tours and private studio visits. The Fair will also hold a vibrant public program looking to cultivate and celebrate the ever-changing dynamic of today’s visual culture.
The inaugural edition of PHOTOFAIRS New York will take place September 8-10, 2023 (VIP Preview Day September 7, 2023).
