NEW YORK – The Photography Show will be held April 4-7, 2019, at Pier 94 in New York City. Celebrating its 39th edition, the Show will feature more than 90 of the world’s leading fine art photography galleries, over 30 book dealers and publishers, 12 AIPAD Talks, a special exhibition curated by Alec Soth, and more. Presented by AIPAD (the Association of International Photography Art Dealers), the fair is the longest running and foremost art fair dedicated to the photographic medium. An Opening Preview will be held on April 3.


The Photography Show will feature galleries from more than 11 countries and 41 cities from across the U.S. and around the world, including Europe, Asia, Canada, and South America. Presenting a range of museum-quality work including contemporary, modern, and 19th-century photographs, as well as photo-based art, video, and new media, the Show will offer work from established and emerging galleries. In addition, more than 30 book dealers, publishers, and photography-related organizations will be represented at the Show. New in 2019, a curated selection of project spaces will highlight single artist and themed presentations. Exhibitors are listed here.


A dozen talks will feature prominent curators, collectors, artists, and journalists including Vince Aletti, Harry Benson, Dawoud Bey, Chris Boot, Malcolm Daniel, Sarah Greenough, Deana Lawson, Sarah Hermanson Meister, Corey Keller, An-My Lê, Stephen Shore, Rosalind Solomon, Carol Squiers, and Martha Wilson, among many others. The schedule is available here.


How should the photography world respond to the times in which we live? A Room for Solace: An Exhibition of Domestic Interiors, a special exhibition curated by Alec Soth for The Photography Show, speaks to the possibility of finding refuge during turbulent times. Comprising portraiture, still life, and reportage chosen from galleries exhibiting at the Show, what connects these pictures is a quality of intimacy. With this exhibition, Soth wants the viewer to take a break from the fractious public square of photography and wander quietly into people’s homes. More about the exhibition is here.


The AIPAD Award was established in 2017 to honor and recognize visionaries who have spent their lives at the forefront of the field of photography. The 2019 honoree is Sarah Greenough, senior curator and head of the department of photographs at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC.
