Jens Erdman Rasmussen at PHOTO-MATCH in Łódź
Danish curator Jens Erdman Rasmussen has been invited to participate in International Portfolio Review PHOTO-MATCH at International Festival of Photography Fotofestiwal 2019 in Łódź, Poland. It’s one of the leading festivals of photography in Europe held in high regard due to its incredible energy and astonishing art shows orchestrated in the post-industrial venues around the city of Łódź, which have been attracting an impressive audience for several years now.
PHOTO-MATCH entails the artists’ face-to-face meetings with the reviewers (curators, editors, gallery owners etc.) over a span of two days. Prior to those meetings, every participant and reviewer gives a presentation in English about their core interests and art practice. The session is open to all artists, reviewers and general public. Based on the presentations, the artists can now make a fully informed decision about the three experts they want to meet in person to discuss their work or a given art project. Private meetings are scheduled for the following day and may last no more than 25 minutes each.
As a result, artists are offered a unique chance to consult their art projects with some of the most renown experts in photography. Reviewers draw invaluable inspiration from a direct exchange of ideas with brand-new talents. Whereas, a wide audience gains an unprecedented insight into the inner workings of professional cultural organizations, and photographers’ creative process. Additionally, both curators and artists can gain some practice in the art of delivering a presentation about oneself.
Twenty four reviewers and twenty four photographers have been invited to participate in PHOTO-MATCH. One of them is Jens Erdman Rassmussen – a freelance curator (Copenhagen Photo Festival), critic, counselor, gallery manager at Peter Lav Gallery. He worked as curator in the National Photography Museum and the Royal Library.
