Circulation(s) Festival 11th Edition

The 11th edition is postponed from 13 March to 2 May 2021 at the CENTQUATRE-PARIS. It will present 33 artists of 12 different nationalities on more than 2000 m2 of exhibition space.

Circulation(s) is the festival dedicated to emerging photography in Europe. Each year, at the CENTQUATRE-PARIS and satellite sites in France and abroad, it reveals the vitality of young creation and speaks for the diversity of photographic expressions through unique exhibitions and events.

A stepping stone for artists, a prospective and innovative laboratory of contemporary creativity, Circulation(s) is a must-attend photography event and a trend revelator. Since its inception in 2011, the festival has exhibited over 400 artists and attracted over 300,000 visitors with an ever-growing aspiration to be an approachable event of high standards.

Based on the values of education and transmission around the image, Circulation(s) is also a place for events and confluence that contrast the views and question the boundaries between photography and contemporary art. Images and ideas of a new generation of photographers both circulate.

Circulating images is also a way of circulating the ideas and aspirations of a new generation of photographers.
