This summer, Foam presents three fascinating exhibitions for all ages. The exhibition Foam Talent | Amsterdam shows the work of 19 emerging talents, displaying a rich range of genres and uses of photography. In Unbé t’aweró, artist Gilleam Trapenberg shows us his visual interpretation of the national identity of Curaçao, where he was born and raised. Finally, artists Karla Hiraldo Voleau, Tobias Kruse and Mika Sperling created new work specifically for the exhibition recommended Olympus Fellowship, which was previously shown in Deichtorhallen Hamburg and the Fotografie Forum Frankfurt (FFF).

Come and see the images and posters all over the building as you make your way through the museum.
