September 22 – November 11, 2017

We would like to dedicate the 2017 Louisville Photo Biennial – our 10th festival – to Julius Friedman. Julius, who died on July 16 this year, was a cornerstone of the Louisville arts community. He was an internationally famous designer, photographer, artist, book maker, galley owner, timeless contributor to local arts organizations and artists, and most of all, our friend. His work and life brought joy and visual richness to this community, and he always found ways to engage different audiences. They ranged from adults to children, and from the most sophisticated to the newly interested viewer. These qualities and talents were a model and an inspiration to us all, and a legacy which affects us today and reaches into the future. His Botanica series will be on display at Unique Imaging Concepts.

In addition numerous shows, we are also offering numerous educational opportunities through artist and curator talks, receptions, panel discussions, workshops, and other public events.  Please join us for the official festival opening party at 21c Museum on September 22, 2017. Also, please check out our Calendar for more venue and show details.

One very important aspect of the Louisville Photo Biennial is that almost all of the exhibits and activities may be enjoyed for free. Photography is the most widespread art form, one which we all practice and enjoy in one way or another. It is very important to our participating artists and organizations that the cultural richness provided by the Louisville Photo Biennial is accessible to everyone.
