For the 2019 edition of PHOTOFAIRS the Connected program will be expanded to celebrate video and how new technologies (VR, AI, Video etc) can represent the un-representable for example, emotions, thoughts, contradictions and gaps in thought. Exhibitors are invited to submit proposals from which artworks for a limited number of spaces will be chosen by PHOTOFAIRS.
