Paris Photo, the largest international art fair dedicated to the photographic medium, has developed and supported photographic creation by promoting the work of artists, gallery owners, and publishers since 1997. This year, from November 10 to 13, the fair returns to the Grand Palais Éphémère in the heart of Paris for its 25th edition.
The fair is organized around three sectors that bring together 183 exhibitors from 31 countries: the main sector, which includes 134 galleries from 29 countries; the Curiosa sector dedicated to emerging art, featuring 17 artists from 12 countries under the direction of guest curator Holly Roussell; and the book sector, in which 34 publishers from nine countries offer unique editions and exclusive previews as well as a signature program with top names in photography from all over the world. Visitors may navigate Paris Photo via the Elles x Paris Photo fair path, curated by Federica Chiocchetti, which promotes the visibility of women artists and their contributions to the history of photography.
As part of the fair’s full program, there are dozens of exhibitions on view, such as Fraenkel Gallery’s group show featuring Carrie Mae Weems and images from her series The Louisiana Project (2003). Other highlights include an installation by Daniel Gordon for Huxley-Parlour Gallery, new work by Barbara Probst at Kuckei + Kuckei, and Boris Mikhaïlov’s homage to the people of Ukraine in his rarely shown series Theater of War at Suzanne Tarasieve gallery’s booth.
At the Platform, audiences can enjoy four days of conversations on emerging art, new digital practices, performance art, and more. Visitors may also attend discussions and Q&As with 36 artists selected by The Eyes journal at Artist Talks by The Eyes. For those who are not able to be at Paris Photo in person, there is an Online Viewing Room where they can easily discover new talents, browse curator choices, acquire artworks and books, and check out online programs.
