The Photography Show, which is run by the Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD), has moved to the 7th Regiment Armory, Park Ave. at 67th St., New York City and will run from February 9-12, 2006.
The new venue will allow AIPAD to expand the average booth size dramatically and keep the show all on one level in a more prestigious location. A number of AIPAD dealers who have not exhibited in the recent past, particularly contemporary art photography dealers who had a need for more space, will now be showing at this revamped event. Eighty-two international photography dealers and galleries will exhibit contemporary art photography and 19th and 20th-century vintage material.
Robert Klein, president of the organization, said, "I'm pleased that I am able to announce the move to the Armory as an affirmation of AIPAD's founding role in defining the market for fine art photographs."
Other changes in the 26th running of this show include going back to a four-day schedule from the previous five-day version. The show will kick off February 9, Thursday night from 6-8 p.m. with a benefit reception/opening for Inwood House, an organization that helps troubled teenagers. For details, contact AIPAD headquarters at 1-202-986-0105.
Regular hours for the show are the following: February 10-11, Friday and Saturday, from 12 noon till 7 p.m.; Sunday from12 noon till 6 p.m. The ticket price is $30 three-day pass or $20 per day. The price of admission includes an exceptional catalogue.
