From October 13 to 17, at the Casa Basavilbaso palace in the City of Buenos Aires, BAphoto will celebrate its seventeenth edition. In a hybrid format, BAphoto will take place in person and accompanied by a virtual program.
BAphoto presents LiveTalk, a series of conversations reflecting with local and international artists, curators, collectors, gallery owners, and museum directors, dedicated to collaboratively investigating different aspects of photography and contemporary art.
Each year since 2015, BAphoto pays homage to one photographer who has demonstrated active and outstanding participation in the field of Argentine photography, with the purpose of recuperating and elevating their figure within the local art-history. Lucrecia Plat, who participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions, is the artist who will be honored in this year’s edition of BAphoto
Since 2015, Wunderkammer has been the fair’s established sector for heritage photography, aiming to highlight the work of different agents who specialize in recovering and adding value to photographic material of a historical and documentary nature.
BAphoto presents OpenFile, a series of video interviews in which photographers share insights on the processes and details of their works.

Placing the body at the center of experience to provide a different, strange look on everyday life.
Rivas stops to poeticize that moment prior to an event, a decision, to then analyze both its fragility and its power to change everything.

The BAphoto 2021 curatorial team is composed of Rodrigo Alonso, Florencia Battiti, Irene Gelfman, Bárbara Golubicki, Celina Marco, Francisco Medail, vero Santalla.
This program allows visitors to experience the fair through guided tours. In each tour, a selection of works will be explored through the gaze of photographers who exhibit the traditional and contemporary uses of photography from different perspectives.
As visitors encounter these particular sets of works, they will investigate topics such as: artistic genres in photography, technical qualities of the genres, new materials and media that influence contemporary photography, and the appreciation of images that reshape traditional discourses through fresh approaches.
