Foam is proud to present Reflected – Works from the Foam Collection at Atelier Néerlandais, Paris, an exhibition of works selected from its own collection
Foam has been collecting photography actively since 2007, and now comprises around 550 works. Films and photography-related installations are also well represented. The collection is an active and dynamic part of Foam and a reflection of its exhibition programme, in which the emphasis is placed on the support, signalling and presentation of young talents. Foam follows the careers of these young talents, which may also result in further acquisitions. This policy ensures that Foam’s collection provides an accurate image of the most recent developments within the expansive field of photography. The works that have been selected for this collection exhibition clearly do justice to this policy.
In an early stage of their career, Foam has acquired photographs by now internationally acclaimed artists such as Stephen Gill, Taryn Simon, Pieter Hugo and Alex Prager, and of important Dutch photographers such as Daniëlle van Ark, Blommers & Schumm, Gert Jan Kocken, Misha de Ridder and Viviane Sassen. Considered second and third purchases provide depth and weight to the collection. Therefore it is an outspoken contemporary collection that pays tribute to the work of young and promising photographers and that clearly focuses on the future, and not, like many other collections, on the past.
Furthermore the exhibition will feature work by young photographers and artists as well as those whose names have now become well-known, such as Linus Bill, Raphaël Dallaporta, Lara D’Hondt, Fleur van Dodewaard, Constant Dullaart, Uta Eisenreich, Marnix Goossens, Joris Jansen, Katja Mater, Taiyo Onorato & Nico Krebs, Peter Puklus, Lieko Shiga, Lorenzo Vitturi, Anne de Vries, WassinkLundgren and more.
Reflected – Works from the Foam Collection is supported by The Netherlands Embassy in Paris. The exhibition is part of the PhotoSaintGermain exhibition programme.
Foam is supported by the BankGiro Loterij, De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek, the City of Amsterdam, Olympus and the VandenEnde Foundation.
