Fotogalleriet invites you to the launch of the Europe-based photography platform FUTURES in Oslo through an evening of presentations and conversations with artists Julie Hrnčířová, Lesia Vasylchenko, Nikhil Vettukattil, Marin Håskjold, and curators Marta Szymańska and Liv Brissach.
About the event
FUTURES is a Europe-based photography platform bringing together the global photography community to support and nurture the professional development of emerging artists across the world. Since 2017, it aims to add long term value in empowering early and mid-career photographers – launching initiatives to promote their work and granting them access to an unprecedented network of professionals, markets and audiences.
Each year, FUTURES members nominate a group of artists to join the platform. Fotogalleriet has nominated the Oslo-based artists Chai Saeidi, Lesia Vasylchenko, Nikhil Vettukattil, Marin Håskjold and Nicole Rafiki for 2022. Fotograf Magazine has nominated Oslo-based artist Julie Hrnčířová.
For this event in Oslo, the artists will give individual presentations of their artistic practice and work before a group discussion. Curator Marta Szymańska, who is part of the collective and program board of Fotofestiwal I Lodz, Poland (and a member of the FUTURES network), will participate and present. Oslo-based writer and curator Liv Brissach will join the conversation and provide a situated perspective.
The event is free and will take place in English. Kunstnernes Hus is an accessible venue (by elevator).
