From 5 to 28 September 2014
For its 6th edition, DocksArtFair™ is creating an event by launching a unique event dedicated to contemporary photography and video art: Photo DocksArtFair™.
Very much part of its area, strongly attached to its territory, and always looking for interaction DocksArtFair™ becomes an annual meeting for contemporary art.
Every odd year, there will be a solo show, and for every even year there will be a focus on a variety of contemporary photography and video art.
/// A New Concept:
A salon dedicated to contemporary photography and video art in a special and new format. The first three days a traditional fair, and then a three-week exhibition where each booth becomes an exhibition space. It will be a meeting point for artists, galleries, institutions, professionals, collectors and contemporary art lovers. The artworks will remain in place for a three-week exhibition where the general public and schools will be able to appreciate the artists presented in a museum showcase. The organizers of "Photo DocksArtFair ™" encourage this new addition, to focus on the curating role of the galleries.
“Photo DocksArtFair™” will be a dynamic place for interaction. There will be events, conferences, and a special night: “The Night of Photography”
