VIDEO: AIPAD Exclusive: Interview with several International member galleries including SOUS LES ETOILES Gallery, LUMINA Gallery, PACI CONTEMPORARY, GALLERY 51, IBASHO, VASARI and US member SCHEINBAUM & RUSSEK, Ltd..
ARTREELS production spoke with AIPAD members about the benefit of attending the AIPAD photography show at Pier 94.
SOUS LES ETOILES Gallery. New York, NY.
You have a new perspective about what is photography today and the combination between vintage photography, conceptual photography, contemporary photography, abstract photography and that’s why, I think, it’s a huge step because it gives a contemporary vision and it gives the community also a move forward with something completely new. I think photography could be better understood and could be more accessible not only in terms of understanding but in terms of beauty. Just about this.
LUMINA Gallery. Oslo, NORWARY.
We’re bringing in artists that can be a part of this international community, and it’s showing where contemporary photography, but also of course vintage and “old” photography- they become part of a bigger whole.
SCHEINBAUM & RUSSEK Ltd. Sante Fe, NEW MEXICO.
We like it a lot. We like the generosity of the space and the aisles. It’s really wonderful for us to have every type of photography represented. People can show so much more variety of work.
PACI CONTEMPORARY. Brescia – Porto Cervo, ITALY
For sure, the Pier 94 gives much more energy, gives much more impression. especially to the collector and lets us introduce AIPAD show to become a very big International event and just not only focus on the United States. So, I think, that we are on the way to become a very important event for the photography in the world.
GALLERY 51. Antwerp, BELGIUM.
I think it was a good move. When I spoke to visitors, they said they liked the space, they like the venue because they have much more space. The aisles are larger, they can walk around. They don’t feel tired after, you know, an hour. So, I think the general idea is very positive.
IBASHO. Antwerp, BELGIUM
Something that people don’t know about AIPAD that well is that it’s not just about beautiful 19th century vintage work but it’s about photography as a whole. You can see people pushing boundaries of photography. Not just plain photography but folded pieces of paper and more 3-D type of things. So it’s definitely a much wider subject than just straight photography.
VASARI. Buenos Aires, ARGENTINA.
We are from Argentina and we’ve been members of AIPAD for approximately 10 years now We are really happy to be a part of it and to come do the show. Especially this new venue, which is really outstanding.
LUMINA Gallery. Oslo, NORWAY
You are getting International galleries in and dealers. You’re making this something that can be a base of photography in the most wonderful city in the world, which has this history within photography so much more than anywhere else.
