Public opening: Structures of Identity
You are invited to join us on 28 June for the public opening of two new exhibitions:

Structures of Identity shows how photographers from different periods and diverse cultures have used the power of the portrait to confirm or indeed critically investigate stereotypical ideas about gender, race, status and nationality. The exhibition focuses on the relationship between self-image and social identity as captured by means of photography. Iconic works by photographers including August Sander, Richard Avedon and J.D. Ojeikere are combined with the work of contemporary photographers like Yto Barrada, Samuel Fosso, Zanele Muholi and Guy Tillim. There are also remarkable historical photos by unknown photographers.

The exhibition is a collaboration between The Walther Collection, Neu-Ulm (Germany) and New York (US), and Foam.

This exhibition is on view from 29 June until 29 August 2018.

FOAM 3H: STELIOS KALLINIKOU - STUDIES IN GEOLOGYWater Composition 1, 2017 © Stelios Kallinikou

Foam is proud to present the exhibition Foam 3h: Stelios Kallinikou - Studies in Geology. A sense of continual exploration of national identity typifies the body of work of Cypriot photographer Stelios Kallinikou (Limassol, 1985), who creates magical and beautiful images that are deeply rooted in the Cypriot landscape. The landscape, as a result of our collective action, becomes a vehicle for his thoughts on place, history, time and space –all fundamental issues related to human nature.

This exhibition is made possible with support of the Gieskes-Strijbis Fund and the Van Bijlevelt Foundation.

This exhibition is on view from 29 June until 2 September 2018.
