PHOTOFAIRS Shanghai will move to Spring season from 2023 onwards

Building on its successes as Asia Pacific’s leading fair dedicated to photo-based and digital artworks, PHOTOFAIRS Shanghai will be held from 20-23 April 2023 at Shanghai Exhibition Centre and permanently move to the Spring season going forward.

A key moment for the region each year, the new dates will strategically enhance the fair’s offering and further bolster its position as a staple of the global art circuit. PHOTOFAIRS Shanghai’s new fixture strengthens its ties to institutions and galleries both regionally and worldwide, with the aim of championing the very best of contemporary fine art photography, moving images, and digital art.

PHOTOFAIRS Shanghai is part of the newly announced Art Assembly, an affiliation of art fairs across Asia Pacific. In addition, the World Photography Organisation, the organiser of PHOTOFAIRS Shanghai, has built a new partnership with Photo London, acquiring a 25% stake in the London based fair, in order to increase interactions between the two primary international photography platforms. While strengthening its position within the global community, PHOTOFAIRS Shanghai will continue to cultivate its local presence, not only by gathering together museums and institutions based in Shanghai but also through a series of annual parallel programmes and periodic market and VIP events to explore the vibrancy and diversity of further cities and regions beyond.

Fan Ni, director of PHOTOFAIRS Shanghai said, “We are deeply committed to supporting galleries, artists and the photographic art world community and to providing a unique and dynamic fair for all. We are excited by the opportunities of this broader platform to strengthen collaboration and to further serve our exhibitors and audiences. We look forward to bringing a new look next April.”

Applications for the 8th edition of PHOTOFAIRS Shanghai are now open until 23 December 2022. For more information, please follow the official channels of PHOTOFAIRS Shanghai.
