SCREENINGS AT LITHUANIA’S NIDA 2022 FESTIVAL WILL FEATURE ARTISTS PARTICIPATING IN THE RENCONTRES D’ARLES 2022 LOUIS ROEDERER DISCOVERY AWARD.

Since its creation, the Rencontres d’Arles has promoted photography and all its stakeholders, from photographers to artists, curators and publishers. With this in mind, the Rencontres d’Arles associates the Louis Roederer Discovery Award with all exhibition spaces: through their trailblazing work, galleries, art centres, non-profits, independent venues and institutions are often the first to support emerging artists. This year, the ten shortlisted projects (chosen by a jury) were considered as a single exhibition, designed by curator Taous Dahmani from selection to hanging. She and scenographer Amanda Antunes innovatively and eco-responsibly highlighted the emerging scene at one of the festival’s emblematic venues, the Church of the Preaching Friars. During the opening week, a jury bestowed the Louis Roederer Discovery Award to Rahim Fortune, which came with an acquisition worth 15,000 euros. The public voted for the Public Award, which carries an acquisition worth 5,000 euros and it went to Mika Sperling. This year there was a Special Mention Award that went to Olga Grotova.
