Photoquai 2011

3rd biennial exhibition of world images

Created in 2007 by the musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac and dedicated to non-Western photography, the 3rd edition of the Photoquai biennial exhibition of world images takes place on the quays of the Seine alongside the musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac, extending for the first time into the museum garden.

About the biennial

'Photoquai 2011 is a voyage through the clamour of the world, stimulated by photographers' perceptions of the state of their societies and of cultures other than their own. For us, they act as watchmen, guards, preventing us from falling asleep'. – Françoise Huguier

Hailed from its first edition for its quality, originality, ambition and relevance, in 2011 PHOTOQUAI will continue to pursue its original mission: showcasing artists whose work is little known in Europe, and stimulating communication and the exchanging of views of the world. The artistic director of the third biennial Photoquai exhibition is the photographer and director Françoise Huguier. She coordinates the programming committee which brings together image specialists associated with correspondents in the field, who are responsible for discovering emerging photographic talents unknown or little known in Europe. For its third edition, Photoquai presents nearly 400 works by 46 contemporary photographers from 29 countries.

The musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac also offers the public encounters based around this third edition: encounter days with the photographers and curators invited to Paris, encounters and meetings with image professionals for debates and/or screenings, and the presentation of the winners of the Photographic Artistic Creation Aid Grant, which was launched by the musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac with the support of the Total Foundation.
