About the Exhibition: 

Gallery 44 is partnering with contemporary photography centres worldwide to exchange exhibition seasons in the form of projections.

We are working with the Three Shadows Photography Art Centre (Beijing), the Detroit Center for Contemporary Photography, and the Hippolyte Photographic Gallery (Helsinki).

Another Season projection program will include works from each gallery's latest exhibition season to highlight contemporary photography being made by artists abroad, and to create adialogue on contemporary photographic trends across international boundaries.

A representative from the Detroit Centre for Contemporary Photography will be present at the reception on June 10 to introduce their gallery and programming.

These four projections will run concurrently for a week during regular hours at Gallery 44, Tuesday to Saturday 11 am to 5 pm.

 

Detroit Center for Contemporary Photography brings together a community of people interested in photography and lens-based work. DCCP is a nonprofit organization that currently offers exhibitions and lectures to bring a deeper appreciation and understanding of photography to our community. DCCP will promote contemporary photography and provide a vital cultural resource to Detroit's communities.
 

Photographic Gallery Hippolyte (founded in 1978) is run by the Union of Artist Photographers in Finland – a nonprofit artist-run association with c. 360 member artists. The Union promotes and supports photo-based art, and the professional, economic and social interests of its members. The Union is an active organizer of also other processes, incl. Helsinki Photography Festival and the annual sales exhibition for new forms of contemporary art, Art Fair Suomi. The Union of Artist Photographers is one of the six member organizations in the Artists' Association of Finland.
 

In June 2007 two leading photographers – RongRong, from China and inri, from Japan – founded the Three Shadows Photography Art Centre in Beijing's vibrant new art district,Caochangdi. The Centre is the first contemporary art space dedicated exclusively to photography and video art in China. The 4,600 square meter complex includes 880 square meters of gallery space and was designed by renowned artist and architect Ai Weiwei.
