Amsterdam Diary - Foam Magazine Talent Launch
Today at Unseen, I attended a panel talk with the photographers featured in Foam Magazine Talent 2014 issue. It includes the Doha based duo Christto and Andrew whom I met earlier this year at Art Dubai. It was good to hear the artists present their work and the concept behind it. If you can, do get this issue, it includes some good essays too.
The launch of Foam Magazine’s Talent issue will begin with a brief introduction by photography museum Foam’s Deputy Director for Artistic Affairs, Marcel Feil. This will be followed by a round table discussion with the Foam Magazine Talents 2014 moderated by Marcel Feil and professor and writer Jörg Colberg.
Foam Magazine Talents include:
Otto Kaan, Julien Gremaud, Charles-henry Bédué, Alice Quaresma, Jan Rosseel, Daniel Everett, Nerhol, Harry Griffin, Hannah Whitaker, Andrey Bogush, Jonny Briggs, Christto & Andrew and Sarah Schönfeld.
