NEW YORK – THROCKMORTON FINE ART (www.throckmorton-nyc.com) Executive Director Kraige Block, who serves as First Vice President of AIPAD, and is co-chairman of The Photography Show, has selected an impressive array of international photographic talent to feature at the 2016 edition of AIPAD, this year from April 14 – 17, with an Opening Night Preview on April 13.
“AIPAD has gained wide admiration as the premier international photography event and attracts the world’s most sophisticated collectors of museum-quality photographic art, as well as top museum officials and their patrons.”
“Each spring the Association of International Photography Art Dealers (www.aipad.com) brings together more than 80 of the world’s leading specialists in photographic art who collectively present the most exciting new works entering the market. The offerings on display at THE PHOTOGRAPHY SHOW, span more than 150 years, from the earliest 19th century photographic achievements to the most modern and contemporary works. AIPAD also provides a wonderful way for professionals and collectors to become familiar with the newest forms of the art – from avant garde photo-based art, to video presentations and alternative social and new media. The AIPAD show makes the historic Park Avenue Armory at 67th Street the ‘must see’ destination the weekend of April 14 to April 17.”
Among Kraige Block’s choices for AIPAD is a vintage Tina Modotti gelatin silver print of Julio Antonio Mella (1928) and the classic black and white Nickolas Muray vintage print of Frida Kahlo with Magenta Rebozo.

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 National Gallery in London.
