Launched in 2016, Insights, is an initiative which focuses on a particular theme or an important moment in the development of photography. Each year PHOTOFAIRS commissions a new curator to offer a new perspective on the exhibition.
Following last year’s thought-provoking and critically acclaimed Insights exhibition “The Same But Also Changed”, PHOTOFAIRS has commissioned Para Site, Asia’s leading contemporary art centre, to curate Insights for 2019.
Para Site Deputy Director Claire Shea will draw from a wide network of established and emerging artists from East and South East Asia to explore photography’s role in shaping our history. Titled “Fieldwork”, the exhibition will also study the contemporary power of the medium to re-examine those histories and shed light on points of view that were previously overlooked.
