Fotofever paris 2017: 6th annual contemporary photography fair opens
Last year’s fair was a public, commercial and critical success, confirming fotofever’s position as the leading art event dedicated to collecting contemporary photography.

PARIS.- fotofever will be welcoming collectors to the Carrousel du Louvre from 10 to 12 November for our 6th annual fair featuring 150 emerging artists and 80 galleries from France and abroad.

Last year’s fair was a public, commercial and critical success, confirming fotofever’s position as the leading art event dedicated to collecting contemporary photography.

True to our roots, fotofever continues to showcase the diversity of contemporary photography and encourage collectors, young and confirmed, to give it their attention.

The many visitors to the 2016 fair loved the flowing zig-zag floor plan so we’ve brought it back for this year’s show. It’s a unique setting which optimizes visibility for both the exhibitors and the artworks.

70% are returning exhibitors and 30% are new galleries at fotofever paris 2017.

60% are international galleries and some are first-timers including, in particular, Australia’s THIS IS NO FANTASY + dianne tanzer gallery, Turkey’s Gama Gallery and Slovenia’s Photon Gallery.

fotofever continues to develop its commitment to new names in contemporary photography through initiatives such as:

• Young, a selection of eight emerging galleries which have a bold approach. These include French gallery EXPOSED which will be showing the work of artist Christophe Beauregard when it opens in autumn 2017

• Focus, a section of this year’s fair dedicated to East Asia and, in particular, the South Korean gallery AN INC. which returns once again to fotofever, this time exhibiting the artist Suntag Noh.

fotofever’s founder Cécile Schall is committed to broadening the appeal of collectible photography: “Through innovative projects and initiatives, fotofever paris 2017 is increasing support for the creators and collectors of contemporary photography.”

fotofever paris 2017 is joining forces with the Salon de la Photo, which runs concurrently 9–13 November, to offer 70,000 visitors the chance to develop a taste for collecting. The Salon will be hosting artworks selected from the galleries exhibiting at fotofever paris 2017 that cost less than €1,000.

Last but not least, fotofever is working with famous furniture design brand Roche Bobois to build, at the entrance to this 6th annual fair, a space dubbed “the collector’s apartment”. Curated by Elizabeth Leriche, the concept will show artworks as they would appear in a home interior.
