The most important international photography show organized by the Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD), will be exhibiting at the Park Avenue Armory (New York City) from Thursday, March 25 to Sunday, March 29. The show is celebrating its 30th anniversary and will feature a gala preview benefiting the John Szarkowski Fund at the Museum of Modern Art (Wed. Mar 24), panel discussions (Sat Mar 28), and two special exhibitions, including “Cause and Effect” which draws from the collection of the George Eastman House through its new Center for the Legacy of Photography
Last year a handful of photography art dealers exhibited images of the African diaspora or black photographers who live and work in the diaspora. I recall seeing ethnographic images from the turn of the twentieth century, early to mid-twentieth century images, and contemporary portraits. Black photographers whose work was exhibited last year included Chester Higgins, Jr., James Van Der Zee, Renee Stout, Malik Sidibe, Gordon Parks, and Seydou Keita.
