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 Cristina Dias de Magalhães 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.
