The fourteenth edition of BAphoto arrives

BAPhoto 2018


Through fourteen years of experience, the fair has established itself as a point of reference for Latin American photography and a meeting place for artists, curators, critics, specialized journalists and new collectors increasingly interested in this media. From 2016 the fair is held in La Rural, a change that was very well received by the local and international press, artists and collectors. Since then the fair began a new stage with the aim of strengthening the field of photography and expanding its market internationally. Due to this commitment, Candida Hofer  was a guest artist last year. This edition promises new proposals of great attraction for both the general public and the art world. 



Since 2015, a set of curatorial programs have been implemented in order to meet the needs of the photography field and strengthen the different aspects that allow its development. This year the Special Rooms are retaken, an initiative implemented in previous years and it also takes place at the new Fine Art Music Show section, dedicated to the relationship between music and photographic art.



For the past four years, BAphoto has implemented a tribute program to photographers who have had an active participation in the field of Argentine photography, with the aim of recovering and valuing their figure within local history. In this new edition, there will be an exhibition in homage to Pepe Fernandez, photographer and press correspondent who lived most of his life in Paris. The exhibition, curated by Francisco Medail, presents a selection of street photographs, male nudes, and portraits of cultural references that inhabited Pepe in the city during the 70’s and 80's. This exhibition is possible thanks to the sponsorship of IRSA Properties, the support of Galería Vasari and the Pepe Fernández Archive.



Wunderkammer is the space dedicated to the beginnings of photography that aims to value its different materialities, technological processes, and social uses, assuming the challenge of stimulating a new type of collecting. In its fourth edition, Wunderkammer restates its place at the fair with the participation of Hilario Artes, Letras & Oficios, a gallery specializing in heritage photography and ancient processes that will present a selection of old pieces and vernacular photographs ranging from daguerreotypes and ambrotypes to albums relative of the early twentieth century.



Special Rooms is a section for international galleries, invited by a curator from a specific exhibition proposal, with the aim of expanding the horizons of the fair and establishing new links between the local photographic field and the international art scene. This second edition is carried out by the renowned Peruvian curator Florencia Portocarrero, who, based on the relationship between body and landscape raised by ecologist Brigitte Baptiste, convened a group of artists whose works make contemporary economic and social flows visible, that leave their mark on both the political construction of the body and the territory. The participating artists will be Edi Hirose and Gihan Tubbeh (Del Paseo Gallery), Karen Miranda Rivadeneira and Nicolás Saavedra (Masarte) C.J. Chueca and Natalia Iguiñiz (Y Gallery), Anankee Aseff and Humberto Rivas (Rolf Art).
