What are young photographers up to in the twenty-first century? How do they see the world? How much do they respect, build on or reject tradition? Are they busy in the darkroom or the computer lab—or both? Theregeneration project—the broadest and most enterprising survey of its kind—sets out to answer these intriguing questions, previewing the work of young photographers who may well emerge as some of the finest artists of their generation.
Following the success of the 2005 book and exhibition—which traveled to ten different cities across North America, Europe, and Asia—this second edition turns the spotlight on new, up-and-coming talents from thirty-one countries. Curators at the world-renowned Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne selected the most promising candidates from some seven hundred entries submitted by 120 of the world’s top photography schools. The resulting publication and exhibition reveal the flexibility of young photographers as they pass fluidly from one genre to another, and/or one technique to another.
The panel discussion with curators William A. Ewing and Nathalie Herschdorfer and Sam Stourdzé, Director of Musée de l’Elysée will feature artists Ted Partin (USA), Benjamin Beker (UK) and Jennifer Osborne (Canada) .
Prior to the party on Thursday, the curators will do a walk through of the exhibition at 6:00 pm, the reception will be hosted by SNAP! Aperture’s New Collectors Program and will include music by DJ AJ Slim, sponsored by Brooklyn Brewery and the Swiss Consulate General.
An exhibition produced by the Musée de l’Elysée, Lausanne, in collaboration with the Aperture Foundation, New York with the support of Pro Helvetia.
