Foam 3h is our project space where recently graduated artists and photographers are invited to present their first solo museum exhibition. The artists are challenged to experiment, surprise and push the limits of photography. Over the past 15 years Foam has presented the work of over 95 emerging talents in Foam 3h which has become an important meeting place for photographers, artists, students, collectors and other players in the photography field.
With works by: Daniëlle van Ark, Linus Bill, Sara Cwynar, Jack Davison, Kadara Enyeasi, Solène Gün, Sjoerd Knibbeler, Ola Lanko, Stefanie Moshammer, Nerhol, Jaya Pelupessy & Felix van Dam, Peter Puklus, Lorenzo Vitturi, Anne de Vries, Tereza Zelenkova
the Foam project space is an important part of Foam's mission to support new talents and provide a platform for innovative developments in photography.
In 2008 Foam started collecting contemporary photography by building a museum collection. The Foam collection also includes selected works by 3h artists. This exhibition is a first presentation of this work from the collection.
As part of the 3h exhibition series and as an extension of the talent programme, Foam collaborated with the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. Students of the Graphic Design department were invited to design a booklet for each exhibition in collaboration with the artist and Foam curator. The publications often include either a focused essay about the work of the exhibiting artist or an interview. This collaboration with the Graphic Design student provides an important professional opportunity to young creatives in the field and exemplifies Foam 3h as a room for experimentation.
This exhibition is made possible by the Gieskes-Strijbis Fonds.
Foam is supported by the VriendenLoterij, Foam Members, De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek, the VandenEnde Foundation and the City of Amsterdam.
In 2021 Foam receives additional support from the Mondriaan Fund and Kickstart Cultuurfonds
