Immerse yourself in Photography’s Past, Present and Future with AIPAD’s Student Discount
From April 16 to 19, fine art photography takes center stage in New York, when the Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD) touches down at the Park Avenue Armory. Now in its 35th year, more than 80 of the world’s leading photography art galleries will present an exciting mix of museum-quality work, ranging from contemporary photo, video and new media-based art to rare prints by 19-century masters. Of particular interest to students is AIPAD’s discounted admission price of $20 with a valid student ID.
In addition to exploring the gallery and dealer booths on the show floor, attendees can also take advantage of a full day of public programming on Saturday, April 18. Held in the Armory’s Board and Officer’s Room, six hour-long presentations include a discussion with artist Mary Mattingly; two selections of short films that highlight contemporary photographic artists (both produced by ART21); the panel Photography and Its Reproductions with artist Kate Steciw, ICP curator Carol Squiers and CUNY professor and director of the Software Studies Initiative Lev Manovich and two showings of the documentary From Darkroom to Daylight by Harvey Wang, which explores how changes from film to digital has affected photographers and their work. The Saturday program is included in the cost of admission, however space is limited and seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
AIPAD’s hours run from from 11am to 8:30pm on Thursday, until 7pm on Friday and Saturday and 6pm on Sunday. An illustrated catalogue and AIPAD membership directory is also available for $20. For more information about the exhibitors and select featured artists, click here.
