Foam Talent 2020 Digital

Foam presents an all-access online exhibition celebrating the works of young artists shaping the future of photography.

Enter the exhibition:

Foam presents the exhibition Foam Talent 2020 with works from a new generation of visual artists. The online exhibition is a new multi-media platform that showcases artist projects supported by audio, video and effects

Each year, Foam invites photographers to submit their portfolios via the Foam Talent Call, an international search for exceptionally talented photographers under the age of 35. Selected photographers gain international exposure and recognition within the photography industry through a number of career-building opportunities offered by Foam, including publication in Foam Magazine, participation in a travelling group exhibition and the opportunity for their work to be added to the prestigious Art Collection Deutsche Börse of the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation in Frankfurt

In light of the current climate, some drastic changes had to be made to Foam’s programme and way of working. One of Foam’s flagship projects, Foam Talent 2020, was unable to travel internationally to planned locations such as London and Paris. In order to give the 2020 Talents a platform with the same respect as other years, Foam Talent 2020 | Digital was born.

digital as an experience

The digital medium is a unique space, especially for these young artists. The digital exhibition is an addition to the existing Talent programme consisting of the annual Talent Issue of Foam Magazine and the touring Foam Talent exhibition. The digital exhibition showcases extended portfolio work, including video artwork, accompanying soundscapes or music, audio voice-overs and video interviews. The exhibition is free to access with no barriers of entry.
