Three Shadows Photography Art Centre and CHANEL co-present the Curatorial Award for Photography and Moving Image Finalist Exhibition and unveil the winner and Special Mentions of the 2022 Curatorial Award for Photography and Moving Image during the opening week of the 2022 Jimei x Arles International Photo Festival.
The Jimei x Arles Curatorial Award for Photography and Moving Image, jointly launched by the Three Shadows Photography Art Centre and CHANEL in 2021, aims to support young creative forces in photography and moving image art and to discover and nurture outstanding young Chinese curators and researchers working with these mediums. The 2022 Curatorial Award for Photography and Moving Image Finalist Exhibition features five curatorial proposals: Camera Obscura: The Apparatus of Eros and Image (Curatorial Team: Huang Yuting & Xu Zhibo), Differential Valley (Curatorial Team: Chen Junyao & Wang Buyun), The New Survivors (Curator: Wang Shuman), One Take (Curator: Hou Yuyao) and Neverlands and the End of World (Curatorial Team: Tangent Collective). The five proposals focus on exploring the language of photography and video and keenly capture and discuss the most pressing contemporary cultural and political issues from different perspectives. Their practice not only expands the field of photography but also constantly defines contemporary.
