Foam Talent at Red Hook Lab
Foam Talent at Red Hook Lab
Foam Talent comes to Red Hook Labs in Brooklyn, a group exhibition bringing together 24 innovative image makers under the age of 35.
It’s the first time that Foam brings its selection of Foam Talents to New York. The exhibition will take place during the 37th edition of The Photography Show (presented by AIPAD). The exhibition runs through April 16, 2017.
Every year Foam organises the Foam Talent Call to identify young and international talents. From a total of 1494 submissions from 75 different countries across 6 continents, 24 photographers were selected to be featured in the annual Foam Magazine Talent Issue. The exhibition Foam Talent, developed with work from the latest Talent Issue, brings together the work of an international young generation of artists. With this exhibition Foam presents its views on the current state of photography and creates a platform that introduces emerging talents in the international world of photography.

Photo-objects, installations, beamers, lightboxes and wallpapers: Foam Talent goes beyond your classic photography exhibition.
From the conceptual approach to the both mythical and violent favelas of Rio de Janeiro by Stefanie Moshammer, the colourful photographic constructions of Nico Krijno, to the chemical experiments on film by Daisuke Yokota in which the camera becomes irrelevant, the exhibition displays great diversity in artistic approaches. With each portfolio the selected artists prove to have very distinct and unique visions within a variety of genres. In a presentation with more than 100 photographs Foam Talent reflects the diverse and often surprising development of the medium of photography.
