The Inaugural Edition of Photofairs New York Will Debut This September, Promising Everything From Historic Prints to Cutting-Edge Digital Creations

Photofairs New York promises to add a new dimension to the city's art fair landscape.

New to the New York art scene, Photofairs New York will launch their inaugural edition this September 8–10 with a VIP preview day September 7, 2023. Running concurrently with the Armory Show, and held at the Javits Center as well, the fair is primed to be a new mainstay of the city’s art calendar. Presented by Creo, which also presents Photofairs Shanghai in April, the fair aims to explore the evolving methods and practices of image-based artmaking, from traditional photography to cutting-edge digital art.

The forthcoming fair will see more than 20 cities represented, including Seoul, Lisbon, Paris, London, Milan, and Buenos Aires, offering a diverse range of international voices and perspectives on photography and image-making within the contemporary art landscape. Alongside an extensive roster of well-recognized local and national exhibitors, a number of participating galleries will be exhibiting in New York for the first time, including Les filles du calvaire, Paris; Shun Art Gallery, Tokyo; and Troconi-Letayf & Campbell, Mexico City.

The 60 exhibitors the fair will host for its debut edition reflect a highly curated selection process conducted by the Photofairs New York Selection Committee. The result is an unprecedented collection of galleries brought together in one place—spanning everything from historic photography galleries to avant-garde contemporary art galleries.

In addition to the booth presentations, visitors will also be met with a breadth of special projects, large-scale installations, and publishing projects undertaken by the fair’s programming partners, which include among others Fotografiska New York and Gagosian Quarterly. A dynamic conversation series and programming will also be announced in the lead-up to the fair, which will host thought leaders and innovators in the fields of photography and digital art, contextualizing the practice of photography today.

“Photofairs New York brings together a global network of galleries and interdisciplinary spaces that have championed photography for decades, and also support artists breaking boundaries in the field of image-making today,” said Director of Photofairs New York Helen Toomer. “Our commitment to integrating exhibitors across distinct mediums for the inaugural edition enables our audience to discover new technologies and rediscover photography’s rich history. We’re looking forward to unveiling more details of our program in the coming weeks and opening the doors of Photofairs New York in September.”

Whether an avid follower and collector of photography and image-based art or comparatively new to the mediums, the inaugural edition of Photofairs New York promises to be a comprehensive and wide-ranging event not to be missed.

Photofairs New York is open September 8–10, with a VIP preview day on September 7, 2023.
