Xposure Photo Fair

The Xposure Photo Fair forms part of the 2017 Festival and will open to collectors, curators and the public from November 22-25 and will offer fine art, contemporary, documentary and evocative photography by emerging and internationally recognised artists, many never seen before in the Middle East and some never seen before.

For the first time, Xposure will present specially curated exhibitions of the private Platinum collection from Sir Don McCullin. and Polar Obsessions from Paul Nicklen. Both these collections along with more than a dozen others will be on view in Sharjah, during the International Photography Festival, 2017

After a highly successful inauguration in 2016,  Xposure extends its offering with two important additions. A Photography Fair allows the opportunity for collectors, buyers and galleries to attend and view new works from dozens of photographers and also opportunity to personally meet the artists who will all be present throughout the four-day festival.  The Festival will feature photographers from across the globe including the U.S., Europe, Asia, Canada, Mexico, the Middle East, and South Africa.

Additional works included in the Photo Fair include those by Clive Arrowsmith, David Anthony Hall, Muhammed Muheisen, Lorenzo Agius, Erik Johansson, Marcus Bleasdale, Cristina Mittermeier, Bob Martin, Eli Reed, Fabian Oefner, Elia Locardi, Alan Ranger, Graham Fink, H.E. Ali Khalifa bin Thalith, Abdel Rahman Gabr.

The second initiative to support emerging and talented photographers offers a platform where they can exhibit their work among many of the Internationally recognized big names.

An additional zone has been established by providing 53 customised display panels each 2.1m tall by 1m wide. To qualify for one, to a maximum of four, of these panels applicants need to submit a digital version of their work intended for exhibition, to the festival curators. The cost of the panels has been supplemented by Sharjah Government Media Bureau in an initiative to support and encourage local talents.

Entry is free of charge. See the exhibitions page here
