Liz Johnson Artur

of life of love of sex of movement of hope

Liz Johnson Artur's work is about the encounters she had over the last 30 years. Through site-specific photographic installations, she retells the stories of these meetings to her audience.

This past year, Johnson Artur has developed five presentations specifically for Foam, encouraging the visitor to experience their own personal encounter with the work, but more so with the story, scene or person that the photograph presents.

Foam 3h
15 Years of Talent from the Collection

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.
The exhibition Foam 3h - 15 Years of Talent from the Collection presents a selection of artists whose work has been acquired for the Foam Collection. The works provide a glance into the variety of photographic and artistic practices that were shown on the third floor.
