Unseen Talents pop up in Moscow
25 May 2018
Exposing new photographic talent is what the ING Unseen Talent Award is all about. Now works by some of the competition’s brightest stars have been handpicked for a pop-up exhibition in Moscow.
The Curator’s Choice exhibition features artworks by selected finalists from the last two editions of the ING Unseen Talent Award. They include 2017 jury prize winner Andrea Grützner and 2016 jury prize winner Thomas Albdorf.
The ING Unseen Talent Award is a chance for promising photographers in Europe to gain international exposure and develop their careers. In addition to a cash prize, the programme includes mentoring and workshops by established artists.
Each year a different theme is chosen and the finalists have to create a new work around that theme for the ING Collection. In 2017 it was ‘Common Ground’ -- finding similarities among differences -- and in 2016 it was ‘Fool for Love’, exploring the passion and devotion required to pursue one’s dreams.
The six artists handpicked for the exhibition in Moscow’s Lumiere Brothers Center for Photography are: Andrea Grützner (Germany), Alexandra Lethbridge (UK), Thomas Albdorf (Austria), Miren Pastor (Spain), Tereza Zelenkova (Czech Republic) and Felicity Hammond (UK). It runs until 3 June.
