Exposure Photography Festival in Alberta, Canada, promises to be an expansive and exciting anniversary edition with exhibitions presented in galleries, museums, local businesses, and outdoor locations.
The 20th edition’s exhibition programme shares a wide range of narratives, subjects, practices, and explorations of the photographic medium drawing attention to Calgary and Alberta as the site of an active, growing, creative community in the field of photography. It encompasses over 20 shows including group and solo exhibitions and diverse curatorial themes that audiences can engage with in arts and non-arts spaces throughout the province.
Exposure’s curated exhibitions, the International Open Call and Emerging Photographers Showcase will be hosted at Contemporary Calgary. The exhibitions present a broad range of works, including photocollage, conceptual photography, politically engaged practices, and works that embrace social and individual experience, as well as visual explorations of identity and personal narratives.
The Exposure 2024 International Open Call exhibition will feature the work of photographers and visual artists based around the world who incorporate, celebrate, or challenge the photographic medium within their practices. The exhibition will present the works of contemporary practitioners based in Brazil, Canada, Ethiopia, Morocco, Slovakia, United Kingdom, and United States.
The Exposure 2024 Emerging Photographers Showcase celebrates the talent of early-career practitioners who are based in the province. The exhibition provides an insight into our dynamic and growing community of fine art photographers in the region.
The Exposure 2023 Emerging Photographer of the Year award recipient Elyse Longair will be presenting a solo collage exhibition during the festival.
For the seventh consecutive year, Exposure has brought the Flash Forward Incubator Program to Alberta, in partnership with the Toronto-based The Magenta Foundation. The Flash Forward Incubator Program exhibition will feature the work of students from the 2023/24 participating schools.
Exposure will again be hosting its annual Portfolio Review, an opportunity to present photographic work to some of the most influential leading professionals in photography worldwide—from curators to practitioners, editors to educators.
The Exposure events programme provides opportunities to learn, participate, connect, and celebrate photography. For 2024, the festival will host EXPOSURE CONVERSATIONS a new 3-part event series that explores topics impacting our society and responds to Exposure’s curated exhibitions.
