We’re very happy to announce that Espace Jörg Brockmann, a contemporary photography gallery based in Switzerland, have agreed to offer the next #FotoRoomOPEN winner the opportunity of having a solo exhibition at their space. Read on for all the details of this new #FotoRoomOPEN edition, submit your work, and good luck!
The Juror — Espace Jörg Brockmann
Espace Jörg Brockmann (website / Instagram / Facebook) is a gallery exclusively dedicated to contemporary photography located in the municipality of Carouge, just outside of Geneve, Switzerland, in the distinctive environment of the Arcoop building. During the first ten years of life of his gallery, the founder Jörg Brockmann has been presenting the work of many talented artists, alternating between celebrated photographers such as Martin Parr, Bruce Gilden, Elliott Erwitt and Antoine d’Agata; and emerging, promising photographers, many of whom we’ve featured in FotoRoom in the past, including Vasantha Yogananthan, Federico Clavarino, Karolin Klüppel, Martin Essl and Olivia Arthur.
The Opportunity — Have a solo show at Espace Jörg Brockmann
Jörg Brockmann is generously offering the next #FotoRoomOPEN winner the opportunity of exhibiting their work in a solo show at his gallery for a period of 4 to 8 weeks within a year from selecting the winning photographer.
The costs of shipping work and producing the exhibition will have to be discussed privately between the winner and Espace Jörg Brockmann, as they will depend on where the winner is located, whether they already have prints of their work or not, etc. so please keep in mind that there may be costs involved for you if you’re selected for the exhibition.
