Throckmorton Fine Art is presenting an important array of international photographic talent at the 2014 AIPAD Photography Show in New York April 10 - 13.
Throckmorton Executive Director Kraige Block, who serves as first vice president of AIPAD, says, “AIPAD is recognized as the most important international photography event and attracts the world’s most discerning collectors of museum-quality photographic art, as well as top museum representatives.”
“Each year the Association of International Photography Art Dealers brings together more than 75 of the world’s leading photography art galleries who collectively present the finest works entering the market each spring. The range of works on display at AIPAD is comprehensive and spans more than 150 years of contemporary, modern and 19th century photographic achievement. AIPAD also provides a forum for avant garde photo-based art, video presentations and alternative new media. The AIPAD show makes the historic Park Avenue Armory at 67th Street the ‘must see’ destination the weekend of April 10 to April 13.”
“This year Throckmorton has assembled a striking mix of photography from some of the world’s most acclaimed talents including several of Latin America’s foremost photographers, among them Graciela Iturbide, Mario Algaze, Aldo Sessa, and Rodrigo Moya plus African-American artist Elisabeth Sunday.” Highlights at the Throckmorton stand include Elisabeth Sunday’s Platinum Palladium Print “Annointed Akan Fisherman.”
Spencer Throckmorton says, “Elisabeth Sunday is considered an unparalleled art photographer. She is the granddaughter of Cleveland School painter Paul Travis, and has become an important talent by devising her own distinctive artistry of mirror photography, which dates back to Louis Daguerre in 1840.”
Other featured photographs at the Throckmorton exhibition at AIPAD include Aldo Sessa’s 1998 ink on paper “Tango;” Mario Algaze "Más rápido que andar a pie", Panamá ca. 1994, a Gelatin Silver Print 20 x 24 in., Graciela Iturbide’s Nuestra señora de las iguanas / Our Lady of the Iguanas, Mexico ca. 1980, a Gelatin Silver Print 20 x 16 in., Rodrigo Moya’s Estación Buenavista (Buenavista Station), México ca. 1966, a Gelatin Silver Print 16 x 20 in., and Rodrigo Moya’s Pasajero (The Passenger), El Trenecito series, Coahuila, México Ca. 1966, a Gelatin Silver Print, 16 x 20 in.
“Many significant photographers who were natives or spent time working in Latin America gained insights into the human condition, politics and culture that set them apart from artists working elsewhere. We are delighted to have the opportunity to play a role building on the recognition these talents deserve,” Block says.
Throckmorton Fine Art has been a leader among New York dealers in showing the most important contemporary Latin American photographers at its New York gallery at 145 East 57th Street. Gallery founder Spencer Throckmorton has also pursued a long held interest in Pre-Columbian art and Chinese jades and the gallery has continually staged important exhibitions and published numerous publications on those subjects.
The gallery’s commitment to connoisseurship is underscored by its sales to such major museums as The Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Getty and The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, along with the Reina Sofia in Madrid. Portions of collections the gallery was instrumental in forming have been donated to the Louvre. The gallery loans examples on a regular basis to such significant institutions as the London National Gallery.
As the premier dealer offering vintage and contemporary Latin American photography, Pre-Columbian art, Chinese jades and Asian art, Throckmorton Fine Art participates in internationally acclaimed fairs, including The Winter Antiques Show in New York each January, the Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD) show in April and Asia Week in New York each March.
