Foam and Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation present the exhibition Foam Talent 2019, with works from a new generation of visual artists.
The work of these 20 outstanding young artists selected through the annual Foam Talent Call is featured in Foam Magazine #52, the Talent Issue. After being presented in Amsterdam, New York, and London, the Foam Talent exhibition will be on show at The Cube, Eschborn/Frankfurt, the headquarters of Deutsche Börse.
This imaginative installation presents a forward-thinking showcase of photography and reflects on the full spectrum of creative approaches that mark today’s developments in the photographic medium. The exhibition will be opened on 5 September 2019.
Together, the 20 emerging artists featured in the exhibition are exceptionally placed to share their insight into the state of contemporary photography. They cross the borders of the medium with remarkable ease, focusing on the cycle of time, on socio-political factors and on our everyday life.
Object-oriented installations that focus on the experience of the spectator are as readily found as classic two-dimensional photographs; while archival materials continue to play an important role, together with multi-layered, long-term research projects. These artists possess and demonstrate authenticity through a powerful means of visual expression.
The Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation will open the exhibition Foam Talent 2019 in The Cube on Thursday 5 September 2019 at 18.30.
