Outside Arles


Xiamen, China
November 27, 2020 — January 3, 2021

The Jimei x Arles International Photo Festival was first launched in 2015 by RongRong, Chinese photography pioneer and co-founder of Three Shadows Photography Art Centre, and Sam Stourdzé, head of the Académie de France-Villa Médicis and former director of Les Rencontres d’Arles.
Jimei x Arles has become a must-see event in China, attracting more than 300,000 visitors over the past five years

Every fall, a selection of projects from Les Rencontres d’Arles has travelled to Xiamen. Due to the public health crisis, Les Rencontres d’Arles was cancelled this summer and the planned program could not be shown in France. However, selected exhibitions from this year’s festival will be shown in Xiamen, which makes this year’s Jimei x Arles particularly special.

6 exhibitions from Les Rencontres d’Arles will travel to China for Jimei x Arles this fall. The works include classic photographs from the New Wave series by Raymond Cauchetier, the Louis Roederer Discovery Award exhibitions: Find the Truth featuring artists Elsa & Johanna, Earth Not a Globe by Philippe Braquenier, Your Foot, My Foot by François-Xavier Gbré, the 2020 Arles Book Award exhibition, and a special screening of the Night of the Year program.

JIMEI x ARLES 2020: ten Discovery Award exhibitions featuring outstanding young Chinese photographers, the Greetings from Japan exhibition showing the most influential Japanese female artists, the China Pulse exhibition presenting explorations and developments at an art academy in China, four Crossover Photography exhibitions, one tribute exhibition to a master photographer, one Collector’s Tale exhibition, and two Local Action exhibitions...
