Curated by Vogue Italia’s photo department and the festival jury, the exhibition explores and expands on the take of Black creators on the concept of Reframing History. From alternative and counter- history to a radical reinvention and critique of Western art canons and mythologies, these artists shift the spotlight onto territories that have been left in the shadow for too long, carving a luminous path that is now influencing, shaping, and subverting the contemporary photography panorama worldwide.
PHOTO VOGUE FESTIVAL 2021
BASE Milano - Via Bergognone, 34, Milano - 18-21 November 2021
Digital Platform photovoguefestival.vogue.it – online from 18 November 2021#
The sixth edition of The Photo Vogue Festival, the first conscious fashion photography festival dedicated to the common ground between ethics and aesthetics, is back in Milan and it will be both physical and digital.
Between November 18 and 21, 2021, the event will unfold through exhibitions, talks, portfolio reviews both on the territory and within the new digital platform, and satellite events all around the city of Milano.
The photographic exhibitions will revolve around the theme "Reframing History": an exploration of projects that aim to present an alternative view, reinventing neglected historical figures or questioning stereotyped narratives.
As every edition, the Festival will be a unique opportunity for those interested in photography, fashion and art to come into contact with a showcase of innovative photography and industry leaders, from curators to practitioners.
