Parallel - European Photo Based Platform
We are very excited to be a part of new European platform - PARALLEL, that brings together 18 European arts organisations, emerging artists and curators to promote a new quality standard for contemporary photography – the first of its kind co-funded by the European Platforms of Creative Europe. PARALLEL brings together museums, galleries, festivals, schools and publishers from several European countries, aiming to promote exchanges and mentorships: on one hand, offering emerging artists and curators access to top agents; on other hand providing those agents with new, bold work produced by new artists and curators.
