If you’re an avid shutterbug, you’ll be pleased to know that an exhibition dedicated to image-making will be coming your way from January 19-22, 2017. The Photo17 exhibition is Singapore Contemporary’s first curated platform dedicated to photography in its various forms.
The images on display – priced between US$2,000 to US$20,000 (S$2,987 to $29,870) – are curated into four distinct sections: fine art, documentary, conceptual and mixed media. It will include works by 36 artists including Australian Kate Baker, whose ghostly images are an integration of photography, printmaking and sculpture, as well as French photographer Olivia Marty, whose pictures are a blend of photography, architectural elements and street art with a vintage-y touch.
Also on the cards: A series of informative talks covering photography-related subjects by field experts. Curator Patricia de la Motte will touch on the challenges facing photography as an art medium, while Spanish photo artist Xavier Comas will explore what it means when photography becomes art.
