Discoveries of the Meeting Place
The Discoveries of the Meeting Place exhibition, presented March 12 - April 24, 2016 at WINTER STREET STUDIOS, is connected to one of the Biennial’s most popular programs - the International Meeting Place Portfolio Review for Artists.
Each of the ten exhibiting artists has been selected as a particularly significant “discovery” by one of ten international reviewers chosen by FotoFest from the 160 curators, editors, publishers, gallery owners, and collectors who reviewed artists’ work at the 2014 Biennial Meeting Place.
The work found in the 2016 Discoveries of the Meeting Place is a diverse selection and it does not shy away from difficult subject matter or new photographic approaches and techniques. It reflects the contemporary world we live in through the artists' choice of topics and approaches.
