Foam’s artistic director, Marcel Feil, will go into conversation with three young photography talents: Lilly Lulay, Nadja Bournonville and Thomas Albdorf. They are the first three recipients of recommended, a fellowship initiated by Olympus, Haus der Photographie / Deichtorhallen Hamburg, Foam Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam and Fotografie Forum Frankfurt. The fellowship enables young image-makers to produce and internationally exhibit new work.
During the evening, the fellows will talk about their entry into the professional sphere and the development of their work thereafter. What were their expectations? What challenges did they face along the way? What has been the outcome of their various efforts? And how can fellowships, such as recommended, and institutions help young talent further their practice?
The artists will also introduce the bodies of work they created during the fellowship. Thomas Albdorf and Foam curator Hinde Haest will discuss Albdorf’s solo-exhibition Room With a View that is on view at Foam from 15 June. There will be ample room for questions from the audience.
The evening will conclude with drinks at Foam Café.
