AWARD ANNOUNCEMENT: SOLO II [JURIED BY ALEC SOTH]

AWARD ANNOUNCEMENT: SOLO II [JURIED BY ALEC SOTH]
October 30, 2017 FotoFilmic

With the first SOLO exhibition juried by Todd Hido now on view until December 3, FotoFilmic’s new SOLO program takes further shape today with the announcement of the second SOLO EXHIBITION AWARD Winner and its two Runners-Up from juror Alec Soth!

The second of a 4-part call series all unfolding this fall, SOLO II prompted responses from many incredibly talented photographers from no less than 19 different countries making this second edition highly international in reach and representation.

Jurying is never an easy task and with so many strong works and candidates to consider here Alec’s verdict certainly bears a particular curatorial significance in the eyes of important emerging contemporary photographers to watch.

It is thus with great pleasure that we welcome SOLO II Exhibition Award Winner Marisa Chafetz and Runners-Up Jenia Fridlyand & Demetris Koilalous!


FOTOFILMIC//SOLO EXHIBITION AWARD WINNER:


Marisa Chafetz (Brooklyn NY, USA)


FOTOFILMIC//SOLO RUNNERS-UP

Big congratulations to all 3 artists, we look forward to presenting soon their respective series on the new SOLO II exhibition page with forewords from juror Alec Soth, as well as to coordinate & open Marisa’s exciting solo exhibition next spring!
