Press Release | May 2019
Foam Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam and Beaconsfield Gallery Vauxhall present the brand new exhibition Foam Talent 2019, with works from a new generation of visual artists. The work of these 20 outstanding young artists selected through the annual Foam Talent Call are featured in Foam Magazine #52, the Talent Issue. The Foam Talent exhibition will be on show at Beaconsfield Gallery Vauxhall in London for the fourth year.
This imaginative installation presents a forward-thinking showcase of photography and reflects on the full spectrum of creative approaches that mark today’s developments in the photographic medium. The exhibition will be opened on 15 May 2019, coinciding with Photo London.
Together, the 20 emerging artists featured in the exhibition are exceptionally placed to share their insight into the state of contemporary photography. They cross the borders of the medium with remarkable ease, focusing on the cycle of time, on socio-political factors and on our everyday life.
Object oriented installations that focus on the experience of the spectator are as readily found as classic two-dimensional photographs; while archival materials continue to play an important role, together with multi-layered, long-term research projects. These artists possess and demonstrate authenticity through powerful means of visual expression.
