It is the first major international exhibition, which presents the diversity of important contemporary photographic ‘voices’ from Georgia. Represented are visual stories of traditional and personal viewpoints; documentary positions from the 1980s-2000 which dealt Georgia’s fight for independence from the former USSR, as well as new visual strategies about portraiture; or works evolving from publications and the materiality of photography from younger artists.
The exhibition will be accompanied by series of lectures and meeting with leading Georgian photographers and photo festivals representatives.
