Join us for OPENING NIGHT as we welcome you to Photoville 2017! We'll be featuring two presentations to get the festival started:
Newest Americans is a storytelling project about immigration and American identity. Audience members can watch boxing transform the lives of immigrant youth, meet hijabi girls who embrace their feminism, and hear a classical Syrian ensemble perform waslah. Newest Americans is a collaboration of Talking Eyes Media, VII Photo Agency, and Rutgers University—Newark.
THE FENCE 2017
United Photo Industries will present the work of the 41 photographers featured on the 2017 FENCE, which is being exhibited in seven cities across the United States this year — we'll also be announcing the People’s Choice award winner.
Photoville 2017 exhibitions open at 4:00 PM in Brooklyn Bridge Park, and then the Opening Night events start at 7:00 PM in our Smorgasburg beer garden! We can't wait to have you join us—we're so grateful to have so much support over the years and we're thrilled about what we're able to bring to our community this year. See you soon!
