For this space Foam selects national and international artists who we think have a portfolio that the world should see. The artists are challenged to experiment, surprise and push the limits of photography. Over the years, Foam 3h has become an important meeting place for photographers, artists, students, collectors and other players in the photography field.
Provocative, but also poetic. Foam is exhibiting the explicit photographs of Ren Hang (1987, CN). The photographer was selected by the Outset | Unseen Exhibition Fund during the Unseen Photo Fair 2016, his exhibition at Foam is the result.
Naked youths, mostly Chinese and every one as beautiful and unashamed as the next, take centre stage in the work of Ren Hang. Swans, peacocks, fish and snakes, as well as cherries, apples, flowers, plants and trees are all employed as absurd yet poetic accessories.

We are deeply saddened to hear of the untimely passing of Ren Hang. It is a great honour for Foam to present Ren Hang’s exceptional work until 12 March 2017 in Foam 3h. Our thoughts and sincerest condolences go out to his family and friends.
The Foam 3h exhibitions are made possible with support of the Gieskes-Strijbis Fund, the Van Bijlevelt Foundation and Kleurgamma.
Foam is supported by the BankGiro Loterij, De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek, Delta Lloyd, the City of Amsterdam, Olympus and the VandenEnde Foundation.
