Foam Talent | New York - Symposium
On Saturday 1 April, Foam is organising a symposium focused on young talent.

On the occasion of the Foam Talent exhibition in New York, Foam presents a symposium on what it means to nurture, support and scout young photographic talents in all stages of their growth and activity – from the educational aspect to the artistic production, to their placement in the museum context and in the industry at large.

Moderated by Marcel Feil (Deputy-Director Artistic Affairs at Foam)
How do schools and academies approach young photographers? Do their programs adapt to the ever changing necessities of the field? What is their connection with the industry (e.g. publishers, museums, galleries, etc.)?

16.50  Photobooks as platforms
Spoken column: Russet Lederman (writer, photobook collector)
The growing importance of the photobook as a platform for young photographers.
