2014 Biennial

It’s time for the 15th annual FotoFest Biennial and that means art, glorious art, will be sprouting all over town like bluebonnets in spring (there are more than 100 participating spaces this year). This every-other-year event celebrates photography and photo-related art.

This time around, the festival features contemporary Arab video, photography, and multi media art. The Biennial showcases 48 contemporary Arab artists using photography and related visual media to address a broad range of aesthetic and cultural values impacting Arab culture. The first international biennial of photography and photo-related art in the United States, FotoFest was founded in 1983 by documentary photographers and journalists Frederick Baldwin and Wendy Watriss, and European gallery director Petra Benteler.

FotoFest also sponsors a year-round educational program and sends traveling photography shows, international exchange programs, and publications. Check out the various exhibits associated with FotoFest, listed below under Art & Photography.
