Photaumnales Festival 2017

Mythes au bidons

[Our congratulations to Nadia Huggins, who is one of the photographers featured in the Couleurs Pays section of this exciting exhibition.] The 14th edition of the Photaumnales Festival will be on view from October 14 to December 31, 2017, at Le Quadrilatère gallery in Beauvais, France. The opening will take place on October 14, at 2:00pm. Organized in three sections—COULEURS PAYS, COULEURS QUÉBEC, and COULEURS HONG-KONG—the Caribbean will be at the center of the exhibition.

For a long time, the festival team has been forging personal ties with the Caribbean territories. Over the years, as a result, the idea arose to highlight the photographic creation of these regions at the heart of this 14th edition of the Photaumnales.

There will be over 30 photographers represented at the gallery. The exhibition, including photographs from historical collections and images by contemporary artists, will offer perspectives of the overseas territories of Guadeloupe and Martinique. Different periods and variety of viewpoints will form a rich mosaic in which human activities, industrial traditions, landscapes and identity, societal and environmental issues intersect.

General curatorial direction: Diaphane
Curators of contemporary photography: Fred Boucher, Adriana Wattel
