2016 Public Programme

Photo London
Mar 22, 2016 3:49PM

Photo London is more than an art Fair. For 2016’s edition, the exciting public programme supported by the LUMA Foundation will present specially-commissioned exhibitions from institutions and private collections, two new installations and a wide variety of book signings. This year’s programme of talks and symposia is curated by William A. Ewing, the distinguished curator, writer and former Director of the Musée de l’Elysée, Lausanne and former Director of Exhibitions at the International Center of Photography, New York. 

New for 2016, Photo London will be running a series of guided Fair tours that will give a unique insight into highlights and must-see tips from leading specialists in the field. Each tour will be carefully curated by the tour leaders, ensuring that you experience a full range of all the Fair has to offer and giving an opportunity to ask questions and engage in discussion with an expert as you make your way around the Fair.
