In William Eggleston – Los Alamos, Foam displays his portfolio of photographs that were taken on various road trips through the southern states of America between 1966 and 1974. He has been a pioneer of colour photography from the mid-1960s onwards, and transformed everyday America into a photogenic subject. The exhibition includes a number of iconic images, including Eggleston’s first colour photograph.
In the exhibition Matter, Foam presents new three-dimensional work by Daisuke Yokota (Saitama, b. 1983). Three installations revolve around the tactile aspects of photography, in which the outcome of the artwork is not determined by the camera, but by experiments with the material forms of the medium.
Foam welcomes Hydra, a young photography platform based in Mexico City, for a collaborative presentation of young talent from Mexico at Foam 3h. From workshops on bookmaking to curating exhibitions, Hydra organizes a range of photography-related activities, establishing a vibrant network of contemporary photographers in the process. Foam and Hydra present the work of two young talents in Mexican photography: Nelson Morales (1982) and Diego Moreno (1992).
Foam is supported by the BankGiro Loterij, De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek, Delta Lloyd, City of Amsterdam, Olympus and the VandenEnde Foundation.
