Andy Grundberg reviewed the new show "Foto: Modernity in Central Europe" in this past weekend's Washington Post.
In the show's fine catalogue, curator Witkovsky asks a central question: "Why would 'new photography' take hold especially strongly in Central Europe?" His provisional answer revolves around the presence of a strong amateur photography tradition and the creation of schools that nurtured photography as a radical new instrument of expression. One could also point to Central Europe as the meeting place of constructivist ideas from the Russian avant-garde and new art movements from France and Italy such as cubism and futurism.
The exhibition is at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, through Sept. 3rd and will be coming to the Guggenheim on October 10th.
The weekend Times' Travel section is dedicated to photography and has several great articles pertaining to travel photography and photo-oriented travel. Of particular interest was the article about "photo safaris" that combine sightseeing with photography workshops.
One of the online features is a catalog of 2007 photo shows across Europe and the US. After finding the link on Personism, I read through the piece and was flattered (shocked!) to find Gallery Hopper listed at the bottom of the page as one of three online resources for photo information.
With its usual synchronicity, the NY photo-art world lines up all its auction business within days of each other, this time on the heels of theAIPAD Photoshow . Beyond the monetary hoopla and fears of a art boom gone bust, auction viewings are a great opportunity to see work that may not get publicly shown very often. And auction catalogs are good substitutes for those of us notprivileged enough to

The main auction at Sotheby's is a bit obscure for those used to a steady diet of oversized German color works, so the house has created a handy little Web movie to introduce you to Eugène and Adalbert Cuvelier. All Sotheby's links below require registration (free).

The Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD) kick off the 2007 Photoshow today at the Park Avenue Armory. Show runs through Sunday and features over 90 dealers.
On Saturday at 10am, there's a lecture at the Guggenheim featuring collector Henry Buhl and curator Jennifer Blessing. Photography from Buhl's collection of hand-themed photographs was shown at the Guggenheim a while back. The lecture is free (not sure if you have to pay Guggenheim admission, though.) I'd prefer the lecture feature a photographer, but oh well. It is a dealer association after all.

This Thursday, ICP is presenting a panel discussion on the radical changes technology has brought to photography, particularly photojournalism. Entitled "Photography 2.0: A New Paradigm?", the panel will cover trends arising from the rapid development of digital photography and the ever-present camera phone, enabling the rapid, easy sharing of amateur photography. What does this mean for the long-term value of professional photography? What does that mean for our presumed standards of quality and thoughtfulness associated with the professional photographer?
This panel is sponsored by Getty Images, which just purchased Scoopt, an agency for "citizen photojournalism", so to speak. Getty's news director, Pancho Bernasconi, is on the panel.
Moderator: Fred Ritchin, ICP Associate Chair, Dept. of Photography Director, PixelPress

Tomorrow evening there's a free panel discussion put on by Aperture entitled "Fine Artist or Commercial Photographer?" This topic came up recently on Alec Soth's blog, in relation to why Justine Kurland would take Jeff Wall's picture for editorial purposes, but probably not vice versa. Aperture has positioned this as a career-oriented discussion, but hopefully it will turn into something more.

Admission is free.
UPDATE: the moderator of this panel will be Charlie Traub, also of SVA, not Steven Frailey. Frailey will be busy at the reception for "Mentors", also being held tonight. Mentors is a show by 71 of the graduating BFA students who have been guided by a truly impressive and LONG list of, um, mentors.
This week features the openings of three major art shows here in NYC: Pulse NYC, Scope NY and The Armory Show. All three shows open on Thursday, Feb 22 and continue through Sunday the 25th. The family has been suffering cabin fever through a vicious combination of colds, flu and frigid temperatures, so maybe we'll get into town to see one or more of these fairs next weekend. Based on the press releases in my in box, Scope appears to be the favorite amongst photo dealers (or at least the ones I frequent.)

There is a shuttle between Scope and Armory and Armory and Pulse, so fair-hopping is easy.
All this activity appears to have scared off the Association of International Photography Art Dealers, whose "Photography Show" used to be in February, at least it was when I attended in 2002 (I know, an eternity ago). The show has moved to April.
