PHILADELPHIA, PA.- The Philadelphia Show – one of the nation’s leading art and design fairs, known for the exceptional quality of its exhibitors, is pleased to announce a full schedule of upcoming programming for its 61st Edition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art (April 28 – 30, 2023). This year’s show will bring together more than forty of the leading dealers in the US, specializing in fine art, design, antiques, Americana, folk art, ceramics, porcelain, silver, jewelry, textiles, and decorative arts.

Leading up to the in-person fair, The Philadelphia Show presents New Conversations with The Philadelphia Show. Working together with curators at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Philadelphia Show has created four virtual programs for the public on antiques, art and design. The programs are free but registering in advance through the show website is required. Numerous dealers will offer Booth Talks– insightful conversations ranging from early American furniture to Louis Comfort Tiffany glassware to mid-century modern design. Booth Talks will be held live daily in dealer booths.

Dealers are also offering guided tours of the show with insight into acquiring notable objects and tips on collecting. They will offer a different theme each day. The Philadelphia Show tours are at 11AM daily, cost $25 and include show admission and a catalogue.

On Saturday and Sunday of the show, attendees of all ages are invited to take part in a self-guided treasure hunt. Visitors begin their search with a treasure map that is found at the entrance of the show. The hunt continues inside the museum in the in the Early American galleries.

In addition to the virtual and in-person programming, the fair will feature the Loan Exhibition, a beloved tradition of The Philadelphia Show since its founding in 1962. The curated, museum-quality Loan Exhibit offers visitors a closer look at antiques. The Philadelphia Show’s programming spans a wide array of topics, genres and time periods, with conversations and objects on view that focus on antiques, art and design from the 17th to 21st centuries.

Dietrich, II Director of the Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania to discuss the role of museums in engaging their communities.


Faces in the Crowd

This year’s loan exhibition, Faces in the Crowd, celebrates the range of faces found on works of art. On small- and large-scale paintings and on ceramic vessels, furniture, and architectural elements, faces are incorporated in art as both anonymous characterizations and identifiable portraits. The loan exhibit is curated by Alexandra Kirtley, the Montgomery-Garvan Curator of American Decorative Arts at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and Joan Johnson, the collector, designer, museum trustee, and long-time loan exhibit curator.
