fotofever paris 2017 : 6th edition of the contemporary photography art fair



6th edition of the international contemporary photography art fair at the Carrousel du Louvre, with 80 exhibitors presenting 150 emerging artists. 

Discovering & collecting contemporary photography

Last year’s fair was a public, commercial and critical success, confirming fotofever’s position as the leading art event dedicated to collecting contemporary photography in Paris

In 2017, fotofever returns to the Carrousel du Louvre with 80 galleries from France and abroad presenting 150 emerging artists, and a programme encouraging young and confirmed collectors to start collecting contemporary photography.


Emerging players in the spotlight 

fotofever continues to develop its commitment to new names in contemporary photography through initiatives such as :

> Young : a selection of 8 new galleries with a bold artistic program.
> Focus : a section dedicated this year to galleries from Far East Asia (Korea, Japan, Taiwan)

fotofever paris 2017 also showcases photography in its widest artistic dimension by welcoming as many general art galleries as those that specialise in photography.

An original and fluid scenography full of encounters

The original scenography of fotofever paris 2016 will be maintained in 2017 - a route along a zigzag path, breaking with the traditional closed booth. The open plan space allows a more fluid visit, allowing viewers to take in more artworks and meet gallery owners.

A programme to encourage the collection of contemporary photography
In line with its START TO COLLECT mission, fotofever's 2017 programme aims to encourage collectors, young and confirmed, to make new discoveries.

COLLECTOR'S APARTMENT : Collecting is first and foremost about about living daily with artworks, therefore we start with a showcase of artworks in a 200 square meters decorated home interior.

fotofever has invited the French brand Roche Bobois to design the Collector's Apartment, imagined by scenographer Elizabeth Lericheche
