Emoplux 2019 preview
Our association is actively preparing 2019, the seventh edition of the festival schedules the opening days during the second week of May ( 15-18th ). Key topic to be considered at this point is the representation of the body in contemporary photography featuring mainly female artists / photographers who question the traditional models.
A majority of exhibitions is located again in the capital, including the Mudam, Casino Forum for Contemporary Art, MnHA and Cercle-Cité, Villa Vauban, Abbaye de Neumunster and Luca.
We are happy to see the French Institute return with an exhibition at Abbaye de Neumunster and the Camoes Institute as the Portuguese representative renew it participation.
The cities of Dudelange and Clervaux are expected partners again. Unfortunately Mrs Daniele Igniti of the City of Dudelange has retired this year, and there are no signs that both city galleries will provide the same high quality programming in the future. We will see.
As to the private galleries, the regulars like Clairefontaine and Nosbaum & Reding will be on board again next to MobArt gallery, a new.-comer.
Let’s of course mention our faithful sponsor the law firm Arendt & amp; Medernach which has proved over the years to be the reliable supporter. The firm provides substantial assistance not to mention the Arendt award for the European Month of Photography.
As far as our international partners are concerned, things seem to run smooth and festivals were held in Berlin, Budapest, Bratislava and Athens in autumn last year, Vienna is upcoming. A book project on the body in contemporary photography is about to be published in spring.
