From the Nicole Straus Public Relations firm we have received a write-up on the AIPAD exhibition results. Judging by the exhibitor comments it was a great year for sales of photographs. In addition photographers received a great viewing audience of stars, collectors and curators:
Attendance at the fair, which is the longest-running and foremost exhibition of fine art photography, increased to 11,500 – a record high for the Show.
Eighty-two of the world’s leading fine art photography galleries presented a wide range of museum-quality work, and a new booth design complemented the presentations. The show featured contemporary, modern, and 19th-century photographs, as well as photo-based art, video, and new media.
AIPAD also drew a wide range of curators from such institutions as The Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; International Center for Photography, New York; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York: The Morgan Library and Museum, New York; The Philadelphia Museum of Art; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; The J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; The Art Institute of Chicago; Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art; Detroit Institute of Arts; George Eastman House, Rochester, NY; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, Washington, DC; Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, DC; New Orleans Museum of Art; National Gallery of Canada, Ontario; Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam; and Tate Modern, London.
Quite a show indeed …
