PHOTOFAIRS | Shanghai 2016

Asia’s most diverse and unique international art fair for photography

PHOTOFAIRS, international art fairs dedicated to photography, announced the galleries for its third edition in Shanghai. The fair is the most international art fair in mainland China and has quickly established itself as a key influencer of the art market within the region. The 2016 Shanghai edition will cover more regions than ever before – with South Korea, Belgium, Israel and Iran being added to the 15 countries and 24 cities represented at the fair. Of the 50 hand-selected galleries, 25% have never before shown in China offering a highly-curated platform for collectors and curators.

As the leading commercial fair solely dedicated to photography in Asia, each participating gallery at PHOTOFAIRS | Shanghai will offer unrivalled access to exciting new art from China, Asia Pacific and beyond. The mission of PHOTOFAIRS is to chart the history of the photographic medium on an international scale. Stars of the 19th Century such as Gustave le Gray will be exhibited next to world famous photojournalists Elliott Erwitt and William Klein and 20th Century masters such as August Sander, Robert Mapplethorpe and Irving Penn.

Works by leading figures of the international contemporary photography market will also be exhibited: Mona Kuhn, Cai DongDong, Wim Wenders, Ren Hang, Vik Muniz, Shen Wei, Candida Höfer, Wang Youshen and Jiang Pengyi, among many others.  Fashion photography will also continue to be a strong theme with the work of Mario Sorrenti, Patrick Demarchelier and Jeanloup Sieff for sale-

The 50 leading international and local galleries participating in Shanghai will fall into three sectors: 'Main' and the two new sectors for 2016, 'Connected' and 'Platform'. Those in 'Main' show highly ambitious museum-quality presentations. 'Platform' spotlights international galleries that are exhibiting in mainland China for the first time. And 'Connected' celebrates artists working within the realm of moving-image in China.

PHOTOFAIRS was created by the World Photography Organisation in recognition of the growing interest in and demand for photography worldwide. Its destinations in Shanghai and San Francisco provide a distinctive and considered platform for galleries from across the globe. The fairs engage established and nurture new collectors alike and showcase photography to the international community.

The 'Insights' exhibition is a brand new curated initiative that will run across all PHOTOFAIRS destinations. Its launch in Shanghai will offer visitors to the fair a whole new type of experience dedicated to contemporary photography. ln Shanghai 'Insights' presents the work of 30 artists including Peter Beard, Birdhead, Geng Jianyi, Lee Kit, Helmut Newton, Shao Wenhuan and Sukho Kang – each of whom work in original and breathtaking ways. After Shanghai, 'Insights' will move on to PHOTOFAIRS’ next edition in San Francisco in January 2017.
