The 30th Anniversary AIPAD Photography Show is being held March 18-21, 2010 at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City. The AIPAD Photography Show New York is the longest running and foremost exhibition of fine art photography.

Presented by the Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD), this event features more than 70 of the world’s leading fine art photography galleries present a wide range of museum-quality work including contemporary, modern and 19th century photographs, as well as photo-based art, video and new media.

Special Events

A number of special events, including panel discussions with leading curators, dealers, artists and critics, are being held. 

Celebration, an "exhibition-within-an-exhibition," includes a special work in each exhibitor’s booth, with an accompanying catalogue. Each AIPAD member has been asked to choose a work that reflects the theme of celebration.


A wide range of the worlds leading fine art photography galleries are exhibiting at The Show. In addition to galleries from New York City and across the country, the Show will include a number of international galleries from Paris, London, Berlin, the Czech Republic, Buenos Aires, Japan, and China.

Galleries exhibiting for the first time include: Gallery 339, Philadelphia; Monroe Gallery of Photography, Santa Fe; M+B, Los Angeles; and L. Parker Stephenson Photographs, New York.

Some exhibits:

A rare example of a bird in flight from Eadweard Muybridge's famous study of motion, Animal Locomotion, 1872-1885/1887, will be on view at the Robert Koch Gallery, San Francisco. Muybridge is widely recognized as a pivotal figure in the development of motion pictures, as well as a significant influence on the arts and sciences, inspiring countless artists and inventors including Sol LeWitt, Joseph Cornell, Marcel Duchamp, Francis Bacon, and Thomas Edison.

Monroe Gallery of Photography, Santa Fe, exhibits the historic master vintage print of busboy Juan Romero trying to comfort presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy after the assassination attempt on June 5, 1968. Taken by photographer Bill Eppridge, it is the original print used to reproduce this iconic image in the LIFE magazine issue dated June 14, 1968.

Lillian Bassman is continuing to make photographs at age 92. Abrams has just published her new book, Lillian Bassman: Women, and new work will be on view at Peter Fetterman Gallery, Santa Monica.

Andy Warhol’s black and white photographs from 1976 to 1979 will be a highlight at Steven Kasher Gallery, New York. The gallery is also bringing the first ever prints of Autochromes, c.1907-1925, from the National Geographic Image Collection.

Seminars include:

"What Collectors Need to Know: the Art of Caring for Photographs"
Top experts explore the most important issues involved in caring for photographs. Topics will include: hanging, framing, storage, conservation, ethics and more.

"New Topographics: Landscape Photography Then and Now"
The 1975 exhibition, New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-Altered Landscape, signaled the emergence of a new approach to landscape photography emulated by generations of photographers. A new version of this seminal exhibition is currently touring.

"A Conversation with Members of the Photo League"
In the critical years leading up to World War II, the Photo League flourished as a progressive center for American photography in New York City. In 1947, the League was listed as a "subversive" organization, leading to its demise in 1951. The panel presents a rare opportunity to hear first-hand accounts from the artists themselves during this turbulent period.

Verge Emerging Art Fair Premieres in New York

For the inaugural New York round of the Verge Emerging Art Fair, being held March 4-7, 2010, at YellowFishArt Gallery, owner Alessandro Mangiarotti is exhibiting an installation on a bed. The improvised display, by French-Turkish art duo Lorand Revault and Ali Umut Ergin, saves the Montreal shop $500. That's what it'd cost to remove the King Size from a room at Verge's Dylan Hotel site.

Welcome to contemporary art's newest showcase, an exciting prospect for small fry like the four-year-old YellowFishArt who'd be swallowed by leviathans in a bigger expo, yet still a Darwinian test of survival skills.  

"The aquarium is full of sharks, but you jump into the water, drink your scotch — and remain very aware," says Mangiarotti. While his outfit specializing in Italian and Japanese artists may not easily afford the splurge, it apparently can't afford to sit out such a promising forum's big city debut.

Verge is not, however, a true virgin. It was conceived from the detritus of the Bridge Art Fair, a non-profit noted for sparking controversy during its three-year career.

Billing itself as "the only art fair exclusively devoted to emerging art," Verge puts over new works in all media, with an eye toward combating stasis in evaluating and exhibiting art. It builds on Bridge's embrace of themes ranging from golems and murder mysteries to stunt professionals and "swarthy men in fast cars."

Like Bridge, Verge coincides with Armory Arts Week, which sees thousands of artists and art connoisseurs descend on the City each March. It's hardly the only satellite fair to orbit the Armory Show; Verge joins fellow upstarts Independent and Critical Design as well as veterans Scope, Pulse, Pool, Fountain and Red Dot.

Another established art fair, Volta, is located a scant seven blocks from the Dylan. Newcomer Verge stands to draw some of Volta's traffic, a windfall surely not lost on Verge Artistic Director and Brooklyn artist Edoaurd Steinhauer. With so many satellites vying for fair-goers' attention, being strategically situated could make the difference in a critic's ability to squeeze one more venue into his/her crammed agenda. 

Originally, seven countries were slated to supply Verge's entries, including Greece, Germany, China and Serbia. In the end, Japan, Canada are France are what's left of the show's non-U.S. contingent. Ten galleries have a Brooklyn address, including the Williamsburg-based Gitana Rosa Gallery, which promotes eco-sustainable through its themes and methods as well as through donations to environmental causes.

Though peddling art that's as divergent as their sources, Verve's motley affiliates are apt to agree on at least one thing: Mangiarotti's belief that "there's no way to participate with a zillion-dollar gallery like a Gagosian."
