Meet the Foam Talents of 2022

During the opening weekend of Foam Talent 2022, we invite you to dive deeper into the exhibition together with the Foam Talents of 2022. Through a dynamic two-part programme, we will learn more about the work through personal presentations and interactive guided tours.

The event will start with a talk about how an artist's location influences their artistic practice. After a short break, we will move into the exhibition to speak with the talents about their installation. Additionally, they will speak about how the presentation of their work was developed for the exhibition.

Foam Talents who will be present during the event:
Lina Geoushy, Czar Kristoff, Linn Phyllis Seeger and Donavon Smallwood. The full lineup of artists will be announced soon.

About the exhibition

Foam proudly presents the work of a new generation of artists in the group exhibition Foam Talent 2022. The 20 participating artists look closely at both the world around us, and the one within - without shying away from discomfort or pain. Climate change, political conflict, discrimination, displacement, and social justice issues: the works address the pressing problems of our times and remind us that photography has the potential to capture the unspeakable.
