SHANGHAI.- PHOTOFAIRS Shanghai announces today its gallery and exhibitor line-up for its forthcoming 8th edition. Organised by Creo and presented in partnership with Porsche, the fair returns to the Shanghai Exhibition Centre on April 20-23, 2023. Over 50 exhibitors, comprising high-end galleries, art spaces, institutions, publishers, and studios, are taking part in the different sectors including Main, Platform, Publishing and Culture Spaces.

PHOTOFAIRS Shanghai is Asia Pacific’s leading fair dedicated to photo-based and digital artworks. This year’s edition brings together a strong line-up of galleries from across China; it is a point of convergence, providing a platform for the most exciting emerging voices in Chinese contemporary photography whilst showcasing the historically significant and globally recognised artists that played a key role in shaping visual culture in the region.

Fan Ni, Director, PHOTOFAIRS Shanghai said: ‘We are very happy to return to the Shanghai Exhibition Center this April and present exceptional new photo-based and digital art created both by established artists, as well as young talents from all over the world. Around a third of the galleries and publishers are new to the Fair this year and we are excited to introduce them, together with our long-standing exhibitors, to audiences here in China. Many institutions and organisations are joining us as well this year to showcase their new developments on photography and digital art, among them are local institutions and international cultural organisations. I would like to thank our partners who share with us a passion for photography and I invite you all to experience and enjoy the fair.’

Galleries participating in the Main and Platform sectors present diverse artworks from established galleries to emerging newcomers.

Three Shadows + 3 Gallery (Beijing and Xiamen) presents works by Daidō Moriyama, Nobuyoshi Araki, Koo Bohnchang and Hisaji Hara. see+ Gallery (Beijing, Shenzhen), presents a series of contemporary photographers, including Gabriela Morawetz, Till Leeser, Yan Ming, Lu Yanpeng and Wang Juyan. The gallery also focuses on two critical figures of the post-photographic era: Jerry Uelsmann and Maggie Taylor.

Fisheye Gallery (Paris) brings several emerging photographers, including Léa Habourdin and Delphine Diallo.

Among them, the Miguel de Cervantes Library (Shanghai), the Pro Helvetia Shanghai, Swiss Arts Council (Shanghai), the Swatch Art Peace Hotel (Shanghai), and Fotografiska (Stockholm, New York, Tallinn), all present photography and video art projects at the Fair.
