2022 FotoFocus Biennial: World Record
Biennial Program Week: September 29–October 8, 2022
Now in its sixth iteration, the 2022 FotoFocus Biennial encompasses more than 100 projects at Participating Venues across Greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky, Dayton, and Columbus, and features nearly 800 artists, curators, and participants—the largest of its kind in America.
An ambitious collaboration between FotoFocus and the region’s museums, galleries, universities, and non-traditional spaces, the FotoFocus Biennial is a month-long celebration of photography and lens-based art that unites artists, curators, and educators from around the world. This year’s Biennial showcases major new artist commissions and a wide range of original exhibitions, events, and projects, all centered around the theme of World Record. The theme considers photography’s extensive record of life on earth, humankind’s impact on the natural world, and the choices we now face as a global community.
Many venues are free and open to the public, but the Passport offers free access to exhibitions during the month of October; an invitation to members-only events; and entry into the FotoFocus Biennial Program Week, which features keynote lectures, talks and panel discussions with artists, curators and collaborators, screenings, receptions, and tours.
