Publisher's Description
FotoFest’s 12th edition of the International Biennial of Photography and Photo-related Art, presents work by 34 Chinese artists, March 7- April 20, 2008 in Houston, Texas. Photography from China 1934-2008 features ten newly commissioned and curated exhibitions, including two recently recovered archives from the 1930s and 1940s. The China programs are a cornerstone of FOTOFEST2008, the six-week city-wide celebration of photo-based art.
In addition to these China exhibitions, FOTOFEST2008 presents a symposium, The Evolution of Photography in 20th Century China and a film program, New Cinema in China. The film program is organized with the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH) and the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Forty Chinese artists and curators will attend FOTOFEST2008.
Among 118 participating spaces in FOTOFEST2008, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston is presenting three special exhibitions for FOTOFEST2008: the work of contemporary Japanese photographer Miwa Yanagi from The Deutsche Bank Collection; a retrospective of the influential British photographer Bill Brandt; a presentation inter-relating photography and the scholarship of pioneering U.S. photohistorian Beaumont Newhall. The Menil Collection presents the exhibition Vivid Vernacular: William Christenberry, William Eggleston, and Walker Evans, highlighting unexpected connections between these three remarkable photographers. The Holocaust Museum Houston shows works on the conflict and genocide in Darfur by seven photojournalists.
