Paris Photo 2023


Paris Photo is the unmissable event for artists, institutions, curators, collectors, journalists and photography enthusiasts, bringing together the best of international galleries and publishers. The 26th edition of the fair is taking place at the Grand Palais Ephémère from 9 to 12 November 2023.

The challenges are threefold: to offer a selective photography panorama over nearly two centuries – historical photography, projects never seen before or emerging ones –, to bring together those playing a role in the ecosystem, but also the general public to fuel discussions around a programme rich of proposals, and finally, to anchor and promote the photography market and artists’ books.

Paris Photo is at the heart of contemporary issues and atop its mission is to respond to the new challenges tied to the evolution of the medium. This edition introduces original curatorial directions and questions the limits of the medium. A new sector dedicated to photography in the digital age, curated by Nina Roehrs, presents artists integrating digital practices into their work.

Promoting artistic diversity, applying technological innovation for artists to benefit from stimulating creative opportunities, giving accessibility to broaden horizons, and sharing with new audiences, are all vital levers for exploring how photography is changing, at the intersection of art and technology.

We remain wholly committed to increase the visibility of women artists. We are proud to have seen women artist representation at Paris Photo go from 20% t o 36% in 5 years! To celebrate the 5th anniversary of Elles x Paris Photo, a publication, ELLES, published by Textuel, in partnership with the Ministry of Culture and Women In Motion, a Kering program highlighting women in arts and culture, will gather a collection of more than a hundred statements from artists selected over the years, and the voices of the curators who have contributed to this programme since its beginning. This year, Fiona Rogers, curator of the Parasol Foundation Women in Photography programme at the Victoria & Albert Museum, proposes a dedicated path, as well as a series of conversations.

Coming to Paris Photo also means listening to conversations about current and socially committed issues, having a photobook signed by an artist, discussing ideas about emerging practices in the Curiosa sector, curated by Anna Planas, artistic director of Paris Photo, getting to know the French scene better, represented by almost a third of national galleries, or discovering our partners’ exhibitions, including a selection of the JP Morgan Chase Art’s collection, or Eva Nielsen and Marianne Derrien’s work for BMW Art Makers.

Paris Photo is a socially committed fair, including in environmental issues, to foster new ideas, educate, and give as many people as possible new perceptions of the medium without denying its history, and nurture discussions. These are all directions we are encouraging and developing, to push boundaries in 2024 within the scope of returning the Grand Palais and its extended spaces. Until then, we look forward to seeing many of you at the Grand Palais Ephémère, for an edition full of discoveries!
