New York – After a stellar performance in its new location at Pier 94 this past spring, the Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD) has announced that the 38th edition of The Photography Show will be held April 5-8, 2018, again at Pier 94. More than 100 of the world’s leading fine art photography galleries will present a range of museum-quality work including contemporary, modern, and 19th century photographs, photo-based art, video, and new media. One of the world’s most highly-anticipated annual art fairs, The Photography Show is the longest-running and foremost exhibition dedicated to the photographic medium. The Show will open with a vernissage on April 4, 2018.

“The 2018 Show will build on the excitement generated by the 2017 Show, which saw an expanded program of exhibitions and events, record attendance, and strong sales to institutions and individuals,” said Kraige Block, President of AIPAD and Executive Director of Throckmorton Fine Art, whose design concept brought a new look and feel to the Show. “For our second outing at Pier 94, the Photography Show will present new and returning galleries; talks with leading artists, collectors and curators; award presentations, and special exhibitions.”

In addition, AIPAD continues its relationship with global art insurance specialist AXA ART Americas, as premier corporate partner of The Photography Show. AXA ART distinguishes its service with extensive insurance expertise and art market know-how to assist collectors as they seek to properly care for and preserve objects of art.
