AIPAD 2015 Shines
Strong Attendance with a record number of galleries, excellent sales, and new look praised
The 35th annual AIPAD Photography Show New York, held at the Park Avenue Armory from April 16-19, drew rave reviews and high attendance. Collectors and exhibitors praised the new look of the Show which featured a record 89 exhibitors. Attendance peaked at over 12,000, up from last year’s number.
On view were contemporary, modern, and nineteenth-century photographs, as well as photo-based art, video, and new media. Presented by The Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD), the Show is the longest-running and foremost exhibition of fine art photography.
The opening night preview on April 16, which benefited the 92nd Street Y for the first time, drew a large crowd of top-level collectors, curators, and critics.
AIPAD’s VIP program presented lectures, private tours, and previews of exhibitions at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, the Center for Modern Italian Art, The Morgan Library, The New York Public Library, and the Japan Society.
A number of notables attended, including Chris Rock, Gary Oldman, Blythe Danner, Jessica Lange, Elliott Erwitt, Lee Friedlander, Daniel Beltra, Jerry Uelsmann and Maggie Taylor, Jeff Mermelstein, Cig Harvey, Stephen Wilkes, Phyllis Galembo, Gary and Sarah Wolkowitz, Joe Baio, Michael Mattis and Judith Hochberg, Celso Gonzalez-Falla and Sondra Gilman, Michael and Elizabeth Marcus, Artur Walther, Richard Menschel, Eileen Cohen, Bill Hillman, Gary Sokol, David Mahoney, Robert Menschel, Christiane Fischer, Quentin Bajac, Carol Squiers, Malcolm Daniel, Anne Tucker, Corey Keller, Brian Wallis, Nissan Perez, Sandra Phillips, Alison Nordstrom, Lisa Hostetler, and Jeff Rosenheim.
"I have had more compliments about AIPAD this year than any other year," said Catherine Edelman, AIPAD president. "Many museum curators from across the country told me that AIPAD is a must-see for them and their acquisition board members."
