Sharjah Art Foundation: Vantage Point Sharjah 6

Vantage Point 6 exhibition Sharjah Art Foundation

Sharjah Art Foundation presents Vantage Point Sharjah 6 (VPS6), the sixth iteration of the foundation’s annual initiative supporting the practice of photography within the GCC.

On view from the 14th of July, through until the 8th of September 2018, in Sharjah Art Foundation’s gallery spaces, this year’s edition focuses on the theme of ‘performance’. VPS6 seeks to expand on the interpretation of this theme, making both performance and photography essential elements of a photographic work. In this context, the performance process can be embodied in a gesture, movement or action, or it can be documented through the traces of a past presence or time.

Applicants from a variety of professional backgrounds, skill sets, and interests were taken into consideration throughout the selection process. The exhibition will include one-hundred and twenty-four selected photographs by forty-two applicants.

Through an annual open call for photographers, VPS6 aims to foster the development of local and regional photographers and encourage their engagement not only with each other but also with the wider cultural communities in the UAE and the GCC.

VPS6 is sponsored by Fujifilm Middle East and is free and open to the public.
