PARIS PHOTO – Grand Palais, Paris FR
For the 23rd edition of Paris Photo, 213 exhibitors from 31 countries are reunited at the Grand Palais across 5 sectors offering visitors the largest panorama of premium photographic artworks available on the market today.
Five sectors make up the fair at the grand Palais. The main sector highlights 180 galleries, which will feature diverse exhibitions that traverse the history of photography from the 19th century to today. This year will host 30 solo shows (Joel-Peter Witkin at Baudoin Lebon, Chema Madoz at Elvira Gonzales, August Sander at Hauser&Wirth, John Chamberlain at Karsten Greve, Tim Walker at Michael Hoppen, Yan Morvan at Sit Down, Juergen Teller at Suzanne Tarasieve, Mari Katayama at Sage and many others).
In the Book sector 33 book publishers and art book dealers will be in attendance, hosting signings and meet-the-artist events.
Located in the Salon d’Honneur on the upper floor , the “Prismes” sector puts its spotlight on 14 exceptional projects, all in large-format. These include Olaf Breuning at Metronom Modena, Stephane Lavoué at Fisheye and many more to discover.
The Curiosa sector, inaugurated in 2018, is dedicated this year to emerging artists. Curated by Osei Bonsu (British-Ghanaian curator and writer), this year’s theme addresses photography’s increasingly unstable relationship to the physical world.
Finally, the Film sector, located in the Grand Palais mk2 cinema, includes a series of screenings and talk around the confluence of film, video, and photography.
Paris Photo and BMW will be presenting the work of their laureate Emeric Lhuisset, and JP Morgan will be celebrating the anniversary of the JPMorganChase Art Collection.
Moreover, the Fondation A Stichting will offer an exhibition that questions our perception in a world of overabundant images. Conversations, artists’ signatures, the 4 laureates of the Carte Blanche Students, special exhibitions and awards are all part of a dynamic week that will nourish our sensibilities and develop our understanding of the medium.
