In 2018, the Centre Photographique Marseille (CPM) decided to add a publisher section to its intimate photography fair, Polyptyque.

archipelago was commissionned to design and run this new section. We invited european publishers such as Roma Publications (Netherlands), Mörel Books (UK), Ediciones anòmalas (Spain), Editions Patrick Frey (Switzerland) and Witty Books (Italy) to take part in this Marseille event.

In 2021, the CPM asked archipelago to take on the art direction of the whole fair. After consulting european galeries in a post-pandemy year, archipelago conceived a fair-exhibition that presented the work of ten european artists in collaboration with their galleries: including Michael Hoppen (London), Binome (Paris), Parrotta (Cologne), Viasaterna, (Milan), Rocio Santa Cruz (Barcelona),  Sofie Van de Velde (Antwerp),  Flatland, (Amsterdam), Christophe Gaillard (Paris), Myo (Mougins), Black Box Projects (London).
