Emoplux 2019

Our association is actively preparing 2019, the seventh edition of the festival schedules the opening days during the second week of May. Key topic to be considered at this point is the representation of the body in contemporary photography featuring mainly female artists / photographers who question the traditional models.
Even if the majority of the exhibitions should be located again in the capital, including the Mudam, Casino Forum for Contemporary Art, MnHA and Cercle-Cité, the cities of Dudelange, Ettelbruck and Clervaux are expected to be partners again. We are hopeful to have with us, as in the past, the Arsenal exhibition space in Metz and we are considering the possibility to have the Centre Pompidou as partner. For the time being, nothing is signed because there are still too many unknowns : there will be a new director at Mudam, Mrs Daniele Igniti of the City of Dudelange will retire, she who has carried at arm’s length an impressive set of initiatives in Dudelange and especially at the Nei Liicht gallery. We will see.

6th edition ( 2017 ) of the european month of photography luxembourg

We are actively preparing 2017, the sixth edition of the festival.

With the exhibition of Samuel Gratacap at the Mudam which opened already on February 10th, the “Month of Photography ” is ahead of its normal programming scheduled officially in April; But the framework programs of the institutions do not always allow a harmonization of all dates, especially when one considers that more than 20 institutions or galleries would be required to synchronize their programming. Sorry for this ..
Although a majority of exhibitions will be located again in the capital – mainly at the Mudam ( Museum of contemporary art) , the Casino Forum of Contemporary Art, the MnHA ( National Museum of Art an d History ) and the Cercle-Cité ( exhibition space of the City ) four other cities will play an important role when it comes to photography in Luxembourg: Dudelange, Clervaux and a newcomer the city of Ettelbruck and its exhibition space CAP Art center

Is close to the Art Center of the city Nei Liicht Gallery with its director Danièle Igniti, who started curating contemporary photography back in the eighties.
