The Art Photo Bcn fair is a specialized event that brings the general public closer to the works of national and international photographers. With the fresh format of a young fair, it contemplates a close meeting in which galleries, schools, exhibition halls and independent curators take part in order to commercialise their works and publicise their authors.

Since the last edition the event splits into two in the presential sphere, in the cloisters of Arts Santa Mònica, and in the virtual one, through the custom-built online platform. The Viewing Room format is the best bet to take pleasure in the exhibited artworks. It encourages the interaction between the public and the professionals, facilitating the contact and the direct selling, broadening the temporal and geographical impact of this photographic appointment.

The price range the fair covers is as wide as the variety of the proposals, with the goal of stimulating collecting and the art market. The aim of the physical and online edition is bringing the most actual photography closer to the final buyer by promoting at the same time a new kind of photography collecting endorsed by the agents that make part of the circle.

The fair will be organised along three lines: the general program, the Art Photo Bcn authors section and Fiebre’s Bookmarket.

General Program – The attention is focused on creators supported by an agent of the artistic circle, be they galleries, institutions, schools or independent curators. What is sought is the connection between the public and current photography through the professional work of its agents.

Art Photo Bcn authors – Section made by professionals that already took part in the festival in its different branches, as trainers, viewing photographers and collaborators. People that are a part of the Art Photo Bcn web and that are interested in showing their work to the public in a commercial environment.

Photobook Market, around the photobook, adds up to the event to create synergies between the creators that work in the books sector through the BookMarket and the activities planned for the occasion.
