Focus Photography & Moving Images

The program in figures

The program

Establishing links between the foreign professionals and creative talents living in France, identifying new opportunities for the development of their careers, targeting influencer networks: these remains the key missions of the Institut français.
Organized in 2014 for the 1st edition, the FOCUS Photography /Moving images had welcomed ten curators and directors of institutions in the framework of Le Mois de la Photo and Paris Photo Fair, of which several exhibitions were generated and organized with French artists. 
This 2nd edition of Focus Photography / Moving Images will be held from 24 to 28 April alongside the first edition of Le Mois de la Photo du Grand Paris (The Month of Photography of the Metropolis of Greater Paris). The Mois de la Photo reaches today a historical turning point that will gather all the Paris region’s exhibits in a single programme. The participants will be invited to discover the French artistic scene through studio’s visits and visits of the diverse spaces dedicated to contemporary art (museums, art centres, foundations, galleries). Amongst others, this Focus includes a tour of SoixanteDixSept Experiment exhibition at the Centre Photographique d’Ile-de-France (Pontault-Combault) and « Hôtel du Pavot… » at  FRAC Ile-de-France/ le Château Rentilly, « Tous, des sang-mêlés »  at MAC / VAL, « Imprimer le monde » at the Centre Pompidou.
