FotoFocus Partnerships

FotoFocus provides additional funding and support to partners presenting lens-based projects and educational programs that are accessible and engaging to the public. These collaborations are a vital part of what makes FotoFocus such an impactful contributor to the community.

In lieu of presenting the fifth FotoFocus Biennial, FotoFocus pledged its 2020 Biennial budget to over 100 Participating Venues and Partners through the FotoFocus Emergency Art Grant. Many of those venues were able to present their original exhibitions or develop new programming, represented in the FotoFocus Partnerships below. A selection of gallery walk-through videos were produced by FotoFocus in further support of these projects.
