Paris Photo 2004: more international than ever
Paris Photo, the world’s leading venue for vintage, modern and contemporary photography, will celebrate its 8th year by hosting 105 photography dealers from 16 countries. The selection of exhibitors for 2004 will be more international than ever with the largest participation of foreign galleries since the creation of the fair. Over 70% of the exhibiting galleries (74 galleries) are based outside France. In particular, there is a strong increase in participation by galleries from the United States (17 galleries), followed by Germany (15 galleries) and the United Kingdom (10 galleries). This year Paris Photo 2004 welcomes galleries from two new countries : Iran and Italy.
Contemporary photography: a significant focus
Contemporary photography will play an important role at Paris Photo this year. The majority of the 31 galleries who are exhibiting at the fair for the first time specialize in contemporary art. Distinguished newcomers include Charles Cowles, Gitterman, Yossi Milo and Marvelli galleries, all from New York; Sfeir Semler (Hamburg) and Conrads (Dusseldorf); Isabella Brancolini (Florence) and Photo & Contemporary (Turin); Fernando Pradilla and Estiarte (both in Madrid), and Scout Gallery (London), in addition to the 8 Swiss galleries exhibiting in the fair’s Statement section.
Guest of honour: Switzerland
In its annual Statement exhibition, Paris Photo celebrates the work of emerging photographers from a specific country. Statement 2004 will feature new work from Switzerland, with 8 Swiss galleries presenting solo shows by emerging Swiss photographers. Artists exhibited include John M Armleder (at Susanna Kulli, Zurich), Erik Dettwiler (at Bernhard Bischoff, Thun); Thomas Flechtner (at Blancpain Stepczynski, Geneva); Regis Golay (at Edward Mitterrand, Geneva); Claudio Moser (at Skopia, Geneva); Nathalie Rebholz (at Analix Forever, Geneva), J.F. Schnyder ( at Eva Presenhuber, Zurich) and Jules Spinatsch (at Austellungsraum25, Zurich.).

To complete the program on Swiss art at Paris Photo, The on-site Project Room will feature screenings of contemporary Swiss videos throughout the fair.
Statement Switzerland has been made possible thanks to support from the Centre Culturel Suisse in Paris and Presence Suisse.

Museum exhibition: Fotomuseum Winterthur
To complement the Statement section, Paris Photo will mount a special exhibition of highlights from the collection of the Fotomuseum Winterthur to reinforce the role that Swiss art and collections have played in the development of modern and contemporary photography. Opened in 1993 and located just outside Zurich, the Winterthur has quickly become one of the world’s major photography museums. Presented outside Switzerland for the first time, the selection of 15 artists like Robert Frank, Paul Graham, Vanessa Beecroft, Thomas Ruff, Lewis Baltz and others will showcase the Museum’s collection and provide an overview of important photography from 1960s, 70s, 80s and 90s.

New Photography Prize: Prix BMW-Paris Photo
To celebrate and foster contemporary photography, Paris Photo and BMW will inaugurate a new photography prize at this year’s fair: the Prix BWM- Paris Photo.

Granted to a talented contemporary photographer exhibiting at Paris Photo, the award will be given to one artist selected from 50 short-listed artists by a prestigious jury of experts and collectors. The prize will be accompanied by a cash award of 12,000 Euros (approximately $15,000 USD.)

Paris in November: the world’s capital of photography
Throughout the month of November, Paris will celebrate photography with a series of events and exhibitions through its bi-annual citywide festival Mois de la Photo. More than 70 international photography exhibitions will be on view at museums and galleries throughout Paris (for details see www.mep-fr.org).
