PCA Faculty, Federica Chiocchetti on the curitorial committe of Outset | Unseen Exhibition Fund

In celebration of emerging talent, Unseen Amsterdam collaboratively hosts a number of awards and prizes that highlight and support the very best artists working today. Each initiative was created by Unseen in partnership with forward-thinking organisations who share a passion for nurturing leading artists of the future. In this feature, we look back at the past recipients of the Outset | Unseen Exhibition Fund, reflecting on their exhibition prizes and subsequent success!

The Outset | Unseen Exhibition Fund is a partnership between Unseen and Outset Netherlands, providing an institutional platform for emerging talent. Scouting the fair before opening hours, an international curatorial committee selects one outstanding artist exhibiting their work who has never had a solo exhibition in the Netherlands. The jury will select the recipient of the award, who will receive the opportunity to have a solo exhibition at Foam Fotografiemuseum, to open in Spring 2018. This year, for the fifth instalment of the Fund, the curatorial committee consists of Federica Chiocchetti (critical writer and Founding Director of Photocaptionist, London), Caroline von Courten (PhD candidate in Photography Theory, Amsterdam) and Francesco Zanot (Chief Curator at CAMERA, Turin).
