This year we’re pleased to announce 21c Museum Hotel Cincinnati is the official FotoFocus Biennial 2014 partner hotel. The FotoFocus Biennial is a month-long celebration of photography and lens-based art. Centered around historic Washington Park, the 2014 biennial features special exhibitions and four days of lectures, panel discussions, screenings, and performances in Memorial Hall on October 8–12.
About FotoFocus: FotoFocus is a non-profit arts organization whose mission is to present the finest in contemporary photography and lens-based art, and to produce events that are artistically, intellectually, and academically rigorous yet accessible and enriching to a large and diverse public. FotoFocus celebrates and champions photography as the medium of our time and its ubiquity in contemporary culture with programming that ignites a dialectic between contemporary photo-based art and the history of photography.
Launched in October 2012 and continuing in October 2014, the second edition of the FotoFocus Biennial, a month-long regional photography festival based in Cincinnati, has added five days of engaging and important photography lectures, panel discussions and performances. These will take place at historic Memorial Hall in Over-the-Rhine from Wednesday October 8th to Sunday October 12th, 2014, as a lively complement to sponsored exhibitions at the Contemporary Arts Center and other venues.
In addition to the Memorial Hall programming, FotoFocus is partnering with Paris Photo Los Angeles, 2014, to present Sound and Vision–The Screenings, a film and video program curated by FotoFocus Artistic Director and Curator Kevin Moore. Screenings will be on view in Cincinnati October 8th to 12th, 2014.
