ABOUT THE BIENNIAL
The FotoFocus Biennial 2016, Photography, the Undocument is a month-long celebration of photography and lens-based art held throughout Cincinnati and the surrounding region. Featuring over 60 exhibitions and over 100 events at Participating Venues, the 2016 Biennial is anchored by eight major exhibitions curated by FotoFocus Artistic Director, Kevin Moore, questioning the documentary nature of photography, including solo exhibitions of Roe Ethridge, Zanele Muholi, and Jackie Nickerson. The Biennial Program includes four days of events and programming, featuring artist and curator talks, keynote lectures, tours, screenings, and performances to be held October 6–9, 2016. The Biennial brings together the community to celebrate October as the Month of Photography.
The Participating Venues take diverse approaches to the theme: Photography, the Undocument, which seeks to break apart assumptions about photography’s documentary character by emphasizing the medium’s natural tendency to distort and reshape the visible world.
