Housed inside (and out) of repurposed shipping containers, Photoville 2014 will present more than 50 photo exhibitions & outdoor installations in partnership with a carefully selected group of programming partners from around the globe. Addressing a wide range of issues, Photoville is a unique venue for photographers and audiences to connect through the power of visual storytelling.One of the largest photographic events in New York City, Photoville offers a heady mix of curated exhibitions running the gamut from seasoned photojournalists and high-profile print publications, to graduate student showcases, and fine art practitioners.
Photoville goes beyond the boundaries of our shipping containers and with incredible installations and once again we’ll be taking over the Uplands of Pier 5 interactive happenings that brought visitors to interact with photography in totally new and unexpected ways.
A vast storefront in One Brooklyn Bridge Park will once again be the setting for our daytime series of Artist & Curatorial Talks on such diverse topics as Photo-Books, Community Collaborations, and Marketing. And don’t forget to register for our free day-long Professional Development sessions & Portfolio Peer Review, presented in partnership with PhotoShelter.
Each year Photoville hosts dozens of free workshops tailored towards professionals, beginners, and children over the 2 long weekends. In partnership with industry leaders, UPI will once again present hands-on sessions that will include Lighting, Portrait Photography, Cyanotypes, Marketing, Editing, and much more!
Each evening the Beer Garden plays host to powerful multimedia presentations curated by the wonderful team of Narratively. Illuminated by the backdrop of the Manhattan skyline, the Photoville beer garden is the perfect setting to view multi-media projections while relaxing, having a drink and savoring tantalizing treats from local food vendors.
A mainstay and popular hangout for Photoville visitors and exhibitors, the BEER GARDEN is an integral part of Photoville – because no village is complete without a place for the community to get together, drink, eat, trade stories, share pictures, and view amazing work!
