FotoFocus Curated Exhibitions

The 2022 Biennial showcases major new artist commissions and a wide range of original exhibitions and projects curated by FotoFocus and special guest curators, all centered around the theme of World Record. These twelve projects, featuring international, national, and regional artists and curators, respond to 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.
