Jimei X Arles International Photo Festival 2018
MiA Collective Art is pleased to announce that its Artistic Director Grace Noh and Project Director Yichen Zhou will be participating in this year’s Jimei x Arles International Photo Festival as curators for 2018 Crossover Exhibition.
“Co-created by Sam Stourdzé, the director of famous international photo festival Rencontres d’Arles (France), and Chinese pioneer photographer RongRong (also the founder of China’s first ever photography museum Three Shadows Photography Art Centre), Jimei x Arles features international artists selected from Rencontres d’Arles alongside Chinese and Asian photography talents.
The festival takes place in Xiamen, formerly known as Amoy, a coastal city that has been an important port for centuries. Located across the Taiwan strait, famous for the colonial-era Gulangyu island, it is a vibrant and modern city that is also the home of China's independent fashion scene. The festival's main sites are located in Xiamen's new district of Jimei.
Bringing each year to China exhibitions from one of the most renowned photo festival in the world, Rencontres d’Arles, Jimei x Arles also aims at providing a platform for new Chinese photography with several exhibitions showcasing young Chinese photographers and curators. Along with the exhibition program, a number of events are organized for photography professionals, art lovers and the public during the Opening Week: PhotoFolio Reviews, public discussions about photography, performances, university lectures, and exhibition tours guided by artists and curators.”
More information about the exhibition and the participating artists will be announced soon.
