Since its founding in 2007, Photoquai, the world image biennial, has become a must on the photography scene. And once again it is taking up its fundamental challenge: to acquaint the public with unknown or under-recognised artists in Europe and to trigger dialogue and visual interaction internationally.
The artistic director of this 5th Photoquai (PHQ5) is Frank Kalero. The photographers have been chosen by a team comprising Frank Kalero, six curators – Claudi Carreras (Latin America), Liza Faktor (Russian Federation), Michket Krifa (Middle East), Azu Nwagbogu (Africa), Kevin Wy Lee (Asia) and Louise Clements (International and recent developments) – and a programming committee from the musée du quai Branly chaired by Stéphane Martin, the museum president.
As a mirror of a constantly changing world, Photoquai is presenting the work of 40 photographers from the major geographic zones making up the musée du quai Branly collection. Revolving around the theme “We Are Family”, the 400 photographs chosen will be on show 24/7 for two months on the banks of the Seine facing the museum, in a presentation designed by Patrick Jouin. They make up a fresh, fascinating overview of contemporary photography.
