Estonian artists at the FESTIVAL OF YOUNG EUROPEAN PHOTOGRAPHY

January 21, 2017 / March 5, 2017

Estonian artists Krista Mölder and Sigrid Viir will participate at the Festival of Young European Photography between 21 January and 5 March

The Circulation(s) festival is the most original and ambitious project in contemporary photography. It is dedicated to the European photographic diversity and it aims to discover new talents. Since its creation in 2011, more than 225 artists have been exposed and the festival welcomed about 250 000 visitors. Both a springboard for young photographers and a laboratory of contemporary creativity, the festival occupies a specific place in the French and international photographic field, attracting a constantly growing audience. It is the only photo festival in Paris!

 


The programming articulates around the jury selection, following an international call for applications (800 applications received / 25 artists selected), the invited artists, the invited gallery and school, and the godfather's carte blanche. During the festival, each selected artist presents to the public of visitors and professional artists, a set of pieces that best showcase his/her artistic work. 450 artworks are produced by the festival and restituted to the artists at the end of the exhibition (touring excluded). Paris becomes a place of international photo meeting.


The quality and the recognition gained by the festival resulted in a better access for artists to Parisian and international galleries or agents. It also led numerous artists to be awarded major prizes. As a reference project for experts and professionals, Circulation(s) has become a reference place to identify young artists. Through the organization of book reviews, we connect international experts with artists, who are thus provided with great international exposure at the beginning of their career.


The CENTQUATRE-PARIS is a residency and production space for worldwide artists. Created as a vibrant artistic and cultural center for cooperative work, it gives access to the variety of contemporary arts through a popular and contemporary programming.

CENTQUATRE PARIS welcomes 500 000 visitors per year.
