Foreign Agent x The Photographic Collective
Foreign Agent is pleased to announce its first collaboration with The Photographic Collective (TPC). Conceived during lockdown (COVID-19) and officially launched in June 2020, The Photographic Collective is a not-for-profit initiative designed to showcase and connect lens-based artists living and working in Africa, especially those not currently represented by a gallery. TPC exists as a group of individuals and a digital platform: an Instagram page and a website. The selection of work curated and featured on the platform is subject to a vote between the TPC founder, Julie Bonzon, and an advisory board of artists and photographers active on the continent. Through online and offline exhibitions, conversations and interviews with established and emerging artists, TPC contributes to discussions surrounding the medium of photography in an African context and aspires to become a source of information alternative to, and complementing, mainstream and established institutions.
