About

Photo Shanghai may have rebranded to PHOTOFAIRS|Shanghai but it's still poised to be the city's top art fair for photography spanning vintage to contemporary. Featuring 50 galleries from 15 countries, highlights include the newly launched Insights section: a curated exhibition of museum-quality works set to tour all PHOTOFAIRS destinations. The main galleries section includes a slew of Shanghai stalwarts including BANK who'll be presenting Robert Mapplethorpe and Daido Moriyama, plus Hong Kong's excellent Blindspot Gallery with Martin Parr, Nadav Kander and Zhang Xiao. A section called Connected is overseen by curator Feng Boyi and celebrates artists working within the realm of moving-image in China. LEAP Mag also have a show at the fair: Imaged Bodies features works by Chen Wei, Tao Hui, Miao Ying and more. There's a slew of talks - schedule here - and tickets cost 100rmb for public days, or at a discounted 80rmb each if you're buying two or more (purchase online before 7 September). Note: 9 September is private preview day - without an invite, that's a pricey 400rmb a pop. Runs from 11am-6pm Friday-Sunday.
