The Phair 2023
May 5–7, 2023

Turin, Italy

The Phair – a neologism that is a manifesto, synthesis of Photography and Fair – is an annual event dedicated to photography. The Phair is addressed to some of the leading contemporary art galleries – and not necessarily only to those already specialized in photography – that, on the occasion of the fair, showcase an artistic project related to the theme of the image and art works created with photographic or video material.​

Curatorial Board for The Phair 2023 includes Chiara Agradi, Emilio Bordoli, Lorenzo Bruni, Sara Giuliattini, Benjamin and Steffi Jaeger, Emanuele Norsa, Massimo Prelz Oltramonti, Valeria Schäfer, and Carla Testore.
