Révélation(s) – Discoveries Portfolio review – Luxembourg is a unique opportunity for local artists to introduce themselves to an international jury of experts. Unlike the classic “portfolios reviews”, the artist is invited to present and comment on his work in public through a Powerpoint presentation ( 10 minutes ) . Due to the presence of an international community, the language chosen will be English. At the end of all the presentations, the artist will take the individual opinion of each expert present who will comment on his work one-on-one.

This event was launched by Café-Crème Asbl and the University of Luxemburg and managed by our collaborator Cristina Dias de Magalheas within the framework of the European Month of Photography festival in 2015.

The meeting platform Revelation (s) may result in future projects of exhibitions or publications for each of the participating photographers in case where one of the experts invites him for an exhibition in the institution he manages or recommends him to partner institutions.

Within the framework of the 7th European Photography Month in Luxembourg the third edition of Révélation (s) / Portfolio – Platform – Luxembourg 2019, will take place on May 15th 2019 from 2-5 pm at Cercle Cité Luxembourg / Auditorium.
The 10 candidates who submitted the most successful portfolios will be invited to meet the invited experts during the Emoplux festival and will present their work to the audience for about 10 minutes.
