自2014年成功首展后,由世界摄影组织和蒙哥马利会展公司(Montgomery)主办的第二届“上海艺术影像展”将于2015年9月10日在上海展览中心开幕,并于9月11日至13日面向公众开放。来自纽约、伦敦、巴黎、柏林、东京等地的50家画廊将呈现500余幅来自东西方大师级摄影艺术家和一流新晋艺术家的作品。2015上海艺术影像展仍由亚力山大·蒙塔古-斯帕瑞(Alexander Montague-Sparey)担任总监,并特别邀请了“中国录像艺术之父”张培力策划“活动影像”(Moving Image)特别项目,以录像作为主要媒介,在展会现场特辟的录像空间展出。展会期间还将举办“博物馆峰会”“收藏家论坛”“签名售书”“艺术访谈”等活动,更多详情将于7月公布。

已确认参展的艺术机构包括既已参加首展的CAMERA WORK画廊(柏林), Flowers画廊(伦敦、纽约),玛格南图片社(Magnum Photos),香格纳画廊(上海、北京及新加坡),艺门画廊(北京),MD画廊(上海及巴黎)等;新加入的画廊则有刺点画廊(Blindspot)(香港),高古轩画廊(纽约、伦敦、巴黎、雅典、日内瓦、洛杉矶、罗马及香港),Taka Ishii画廊(东京、纽约及巴黎),The Wapping Project Bankside画廊(伦敦)等。值得特别关注的是,高古轩画廊将带来一场“博物馆规模”的个展:美国知名艺术家泰伦·西蒙(Taryn Simon)的《西印度群岛之鸟》系列的全部190幅作品。正在巴黎国立网球场现代美术馆举办回顾展的Taryn Simon被誉为世界最杰出的当代摄影艺术家之一,她以独特的方式将影像、文字和平面设计相结合。此外,众多重量级艺术家的力作将亮相上海艺术影像展,包括:荒木经惟、鸟头、Guy Bourdin、Henri Cartier-Bresson、Elliott Erwitt、杨福东、Candida Höfer、Horst P. Horst、Axel Hüette、André Kertész、Steven Klein、Gustave Le Gray、森山大道、Vik Muniz、Helmut Newton、Erwin Olaf、Irving Penn、Paolo Roversi、杉本博司等。

香港国际艺术展(ART HK,现为香港巴塞尔艺术展)的联合创始人、蒙哥马利会展公司及世界摄影组织主席桑迪·安格斯(Sandy Angus)先生表示:“摄影作品收藏是进入艺术品收藏领域的切入点,上海艺术影像展为中国和亚太地区的收藏家与东西方最为出色的早期及当代大师杰作之间搭建起了桥梁。”而今年9月,也将是又一个上海艺术界展览活动井喷之月:西岸艺术与设计博览会(West Bund Art & Design,9月8日-13日),艺术都市主题盛会(Art in the City Festival, 9月11日-14日) ;新近落户“西岸文化走廊”、同龙美术馆、余德耀美术馆比邻的上海摄影艺术中心与乔志兵的“油罐”(含5个航天油罐及5万平米绿地)也正式加入了上海的艺术机构大军,多家美术馆/艺术中心的展览、活动已然进入了“抢观众”的“全新历史时期”;加之画廊大多会选择在9月呈现年度大展,想必收藏家的9月档期现在就预订已满。

Following the success of its inaugural exhibition in 2014, the second “Photo Shanghai” fair will be launched on September 10, 2015 at the Shanghai Exhibition Centre. Organized by the World Photography Organization and Montgomery Exhibition Ltd., the exhibition will be open to the public from September 11-13. Fifty galleries from cities including New York, London, Paris, Berlin and Tokyo will present works from over 500 master photographers/artists as well as up-and-comers from East and West. Alexander Montague-Sparey will once again be heading Photo Shanghai in 2015. He has invited Zhang Peili—“the Father of video and new media art in China”—to curate a “Moving Image” program with video as the main medium. The program will be housed in a special video display space at the exhibition. The exhibition will also feature events including a “Museums Summit”, a “Collectors’ Forum”, book signings and interviews with artists. Further details will be released in July.

Galleries confirmed to return this year include CAMERA WORK Photogalerie (Berlin), Flowers Gallery (London, New York), Magnum Photos, ShanghART Gallery (Shanghai, Beijing and Singapore), Pékin Fine Arts (Beijing), Magda Danysz Gallery (Shanghai, Paris), and others. This year’s new galleries will include Blindspot Gallery (Hong Kong), Gagosian (New York, London, Paris, Athens, Geneva, Los Angeles, Rome, and Hong Kong), Taka Ishii Gallery (Tokyo, New York, and Paris) and The Wapping Project Bankside Gallery (London). Notably, Gagosian Gallery will be organizing a “museum quality” solo show of the renowned American artist Taryn Simon’s “Birds of the West Indies” project, featuring all 190 works from the series. The Galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume in Paris is currently holding a retrospective exhibition for Simon, who has been lauded as one of the top contemporary photo artists in the world for her unique approach to combining images, text and graphic design. In addition, Photo Shanghai will feature highlights from heavy hitters including Nobuyoshi Araki, Birdhead, Guy Bourdin, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Elliot Erwitt, Yang Fudong, Candida Höfer, Horst P. Horst, Axel Hüette, André Kertész, Steven Klein, Gustave Le Gray, Daidō Moriyama, Vik Muniz, Helmut Newton, Erwin Olaf, Irving Penn, Paolo Roversi and Hiroshi Sugimoto.

Sandy Angus, joint founder of the former Art HK (now transformed into Art Basel Hong Kong), Chairman of Montgomery Worldwide and the World Photography Organzsation says: “Collecting photography is an entry point into collecting other forms of art. Photo Shanghai builds a bridge between collectors from China and Asia and the very best early and contemporary masterpieces.”

September will be a busy month for art in Shanghai, with the launch of West Bund Art & Design (Sep 8-13) and Art in the City (Sep 11 – 14). In addition, the Shanghai Center of Photography and Qiao Zhibing’s “Oil Tank Contemporary Art Center” (a 50,000 square meter parcel of greenery containing five aerospace oil tanks which border the city’s “West Bund Cultural Corridor”) will also join the Long Museum, and Yuz Museum in the ranks of Shanghai’s art spaces and museums. The exhibitions and events at various museums/art centers have launched a mad grab for audiences in this “new historical period”. Most galleries will be presenting their large annual exhibitions in September; naturally, it follows that most collectors will have full calendars come autumn.
