Since launching in 2014, PHOTOFAIRS has played a significant role in the growing importance of photography in China, the world’s second largest art market and its repositioning as a collectable art form. This year’s program will feature an ambitious Insights exhibition, and a strong focus on artists pushing the boundaries of photography across the Fair’s 50 leading Chinese and international galleries.   Classic masterpieces will be shown alongside contemporary work combining photography with art, sculpture, installation and video.

Full programming and galleries for PHOTOFAIRS | Shanghai will be announced in the summer.   The Fair’s official online preview by International Online Partner Artsy will launch in September.
