Curiosa 2021 presented by Shoair Mavlian

The Curiosa sector, inaugurated in 2018 and dedicated to emerging artists, presents a selection of 20 projects curated by Shoair Mavlian, director of Photoworks and former assistant curator of photography at the Tate Modern. Mavlian’s selection features solo presentations by twenty artists from eleven different countries, some of whom exhibit in France for the first time, such as Maisie Cousins and Jošt Dolinšek. This year, Curiosa highlights new trends in contemporary photographic practice, including new documentary practice, experimental approaches to photography, diaristic practice and contemporary conceptual practice.
