The London Art Fair is running a series of talks on photography and a photographic exhibition this year.
The seminar series, grouped together as the Photography Day, take place on 19 January, and includes speakers such as Julian Stallabrass, Charlotte Cotton and Jason Evans. Stallabrass is taking part in a panel debate titled On the Ephemeral in Photography, while Cotton and Evans will be discussing (D)e-materialisation and Photography in the Age of Technological Advance. All talks are free but must be booked in advance.
In addition the fair includes the Photo50, a showcase for 50 contemporary photography selected by a panel of judges, including Zelda Cheatle, director of the Tosca Fund Photography Collection, and Celia Davies, head of projects for Photoworks. The fair itself includes a number of galleries which sell or specialise in photography, including Purdy Hicks, Millenium, Studio Voltaire and Eyestorm, and features a competition which puts £500 of framing by John Jones up for grabs.
The London Art Fair takes place at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London from 19-23 January. Tickets for one day cost £11 in advance and £15 on the door, and concessions are available. Tickets can also be bought for the preview evening on 18 January, and cost £25 in advance or £30 on the day.
