Foam photography museum is currently closed to the public until 1 June 2020. Explore more with us online as we present you with exhibitions, artist Q&A’s, curator tours, magazine highlights, talent features and more.
We are excited to showcase the colourful works of Vivian Maier in the new exhibition Works in Color. The exhibition shows street scenes in Chicago, where Maier lived for much of her life. Her work in colour seems altogether playful and tongue in cheek. In the run-up to the reopening of Foam, Vivian Maier's work will be on show in various ways through an online program. The museum exhibition will be on show until September 13.
Last Thursday, we unveiled the first works of our upcoming exhibition: Vivian Maier - Works in Color. As we safely build up the exhibition in the coming weeks, our head of exhibitions Claartje van Dijk took us through the first pieces and answered your questions as a sneak preview

Now spring has started and we are all at home waiting, working or studying. It takes adjustments and creativity to make it through the day. Inspired by @tussenkunstenquarantaine and past Foam workshops, each week we'll challenge you to reinterpret an artwork from the collection or exhibitions in your own way.
Introducing Foam Magazine #56: Elsewhere - The Other Issue. The latest issue of Foam Magazine explores the concept of 'otherness' in relation to photography. Discover a diverse range of portfolios that all question, investigate and/or criticise the meaning of difference and how we can relate to 'the other'.
We went live on Instagram together with @10x10photobooks #INSTASalons. Editor-in-chief Elisa Medde and Curator of Open Eye Gallery Mariama Attah discussed the new issue by showing a sneak preview of the printed copy - fresh from the press. Watch their conversation on IGTV here.
