ImageNation Paris, 10 Nov 2017 — 12 Nov 2017

ImageNation Paris

Espace des Arts Sans Frontières, 44 Rue Bouret

From November 10th to 12th 2017, ImageNation meets Paris, the city that saw the birth of photography almost two centuries ago. Thanks to the many festivals and fairs which are frequently held in the French capital, Paris is, more than ever, the crossroads of the new trends. Over all, the Mois de la Photo and Paris Photo have seen attracting to themselves important private and institutional collectors, art enthusiasts and some of the most famous art gallery owners from all over the world. Along with this, during Paris Photo days, the city becomes an ideal stage for the photographic works of the most interesting international artists in dialogue with the audience.

Photography, as any other kind of art, doesn’t need much explanation. It’s not about looking for descriptive words or finding out an objective meaning. Photography is about feeling, perceiving, observing, exploring details, imagining a story to get into the picture and to fly outside the frame, losing rationality and start dreaming a parallel world. Photographers invited to ImageNation ask visitors to live the moment and forget the reality for a while. As for the title, the exhibition is about imagination, a free way of expression in which artists explore their own world in their own special way. At the same time ImageNation is about imagining another nation, an outsider world, a place where everything can happen.

The exhibition, curated by Martin Vegas and conceived for Paris, will be attended by authors from around the world, from more than 30 different countries, who will present works of great visual impact, some already showcased in the previous ImageNation exhibitions and others, unedited, thought to enrich the artistic proposal of DeFactory collective. All the artworks are on sale. As for the affordable art fairs, the works are offered for sale at more affordable prices than other contemporary art fairs. This also reflects the desire to help the audience to grow and develop together with the artist.
