BredaPhoto X Utopias Lahti: Asetus / Settings
Five BredaPhoto Talents participate in Visual Arts Festival Utopias Lahti
Great news! Five BredaPhoto 2022 talents are participating in Utopias Lahti, a big visual arts festival in Lahti, Finland, which opens 10 May 2023
Asetus / Settings is a group exhibition of five emerging European artists working with lens-based mediums to explore transformations in the image-as-view and image-as-space. The works in the exhibition reflect on ways in which lens-based tools can be used to reclaim and recode experience and culture. Incorporating self-reflexive methods into their working practices, many of the artists simultaneously inquire into the conditions of production, capital value and material boundaries sustaining art work.
The exhibition is a collaboration between Utopias Lahti and BredaPhoto. All the artists participated in The BredaPhoto International Talent Program, which brings together and supports students and alumni from 9 European universities including also Lahti Institute of Design. Their work was on view during BredaPhoto Festival 2022 Theatre of Dreams.
The exhibition takes place in Galleria Nuovo – Lahti’s oldest gallery. The visionary gallery was established by Riitta Nuorivaara-Luhtanen in 1977. The exhibition is open from 10 to 31 May 2023 and entrance is free.
