fotofever paris 2016 to be held at the Carrousel du Louvre from 11 to 13 November
From 11 to 13 November 2016, The Carrousel du Louvre will welcome the 5th edition of fotofever with 75 international and French galleries in the very heart of artistic Paris, at the foot of the most visited museum.

An independent photography art fair, fotofever paris 2016 offers a bold agenda. In its forward-looking approach, fotofever paris 2016 gives a view of what will be seen tomorrow in other art fairs.

fotofever paris 2016 is a fair with an educational mission through improved access to the diversity of contemporary photography, focusing on both newcomer and confirmed collectors.

An art fair dedicated to collectors
fotofever paris 2016 is the perfect hunting ground for confirmed collectors who seek to discover the artists of tomorrow. It also guides photography lovers in their first steps towards collecting with the ‘Start to Collect’ program organized by an invited curator. This program includes:

• A selection of photographic artworks for less than 5,000 €

• The collector’s guide, a real instruction manual for beginning a collection

• The collector’s apartment, opened this year, which will offer a presentation of selected artworks in a total area of 130m2 situated in the entrance of the fair

• Daily discussions in the form of talks by young collectors

An original and fluid scenography
For its 5th edition, fotofever paris 2016 is reinventing itself with a new and original scenography that offers a route along zig-zag paths, a break with the traditional closed booth. The open plan space offers a more fluid visit, allowing viewers to take in more artworks and meet gallery owners.

This new scenography is in-line with the declared spirit of the fair: education, friendliness, meetings, community and sharing the same passion.

Emerging players of contemporary photography in the heart of the artistic vision of fotofever paris 2016
2016 marks the strengthening of the artistic vision of fotofever, which considers photography in its contemporary dimension, expanded on with a program that focuses on emerging talent.

This year, fotofever paris 2016 is committed to new players in contemporary photography, particularly through ‘Focus’, a selection of very young galleries that benefit from the good visibility of fotofever at a reduced fare. The ‘Solo’ section invites galleries to present monographic projects that highlight the most promising artworks in a dedicated space at the entrance of the fair.

fotofever paris 2016 highlights photography in its widest artistic dimension by welcoming as many general art galleries as those that specialize in photography.
15,000 visitors are expected to attend fotofever paris 2016. The visits have risen continuously since the first edition of the fair.
