Vivian Maier - Street Photographer

August 12, 2014

Vivian Maier, Street Photographer is a retrospective exhibition featuring the work of a female street photographer whose impressive oeuvre was only discovered at the end of her life - and then immediately caused a worldwide sensation. Vivian Maier (New York, 1926 - 2009) worked as a professional nanny throughout her life. In her free time, she documented life in large American cities such as New York and Chicago, although no one in her immediate circle ever saw the results.

JH Engström - Close Surrounding

August 12, 2014

Foam is proud to present the work of the Swedish photographer JH Engström in the exhibition 'Close Surrounding'. Engström divides his time between Paris, France and his birthplace in Värmland, Sweden. The manoeuvring between the slow pace of country life and the stimulating energy of the city is essential in Engström's life. This is reflected in his pure and authentic photographs and in the exhibition at Foam. The exhibition includes unique, previously unseen collages. The books that Engström has published are another important element of the exhibition.

August 04, 2014

In zijn tentoonstelling Paintings and Sculpture laat Egon van Herreweghe een andere kant van fotografie zien.

De resultaten van zijn onderzoek zijn tijdelijke presentaties en kortstondige ruimtelijke ingrepen die op treffende wijze de status van het beeld en haar genetische materiaal laten zien.
