Foam opens pop-up location: Foam Next Door
presenting a new generation of young photographers in Foam Talent 2019

On 12 January Foam is launching a new pop-up venue: Foam Next Door. In a former office space at Keizersgracht 617 – two doors down from the museum – Foam will present the brand new exhibition Foam Talent 2019, with works from a new generation of visual artists from 13 January to 3 March 2019. The work of these 20 outstanding young artists selected through the annual Foam Talent Call are featured in Foam Magazine # 52, Talent Issue. After the presentation at Foam Next Door the Foam Talent exhibition will tour to New York, London and Frankfurt.

The 20 selected photographers give insight as to the position of contemporary photography today. These upcoming photographers cross the borders of the photographic medium with striking ease. Object installations in which the experience of the work is just as important as the aesthetic value 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.
