30 Under 30 Women Photographers / 2023
Selections Announced

Artpil proudly announces the 2023 selection for its annual 30 Under 30 Women Photographers. Founded in 2010, 30 Under 30 Women Photographers has helped emerging, mid-career, as well as some accomplished women photographers to gain further exposure and participate in the collective among peers. With styles ranging from art photography to documentary, portraiture to street and fashion, the works have been overwhelmingly well received.

Previous groups have exhibited in Rome in collaboration with CultRise and Dude Magazine, and in Paris and Lille in partnership with Maison Photo at Maison de la Photographie and Galerie Claude Samuel. The 2020 group gave occasion to launch Artpil’s online viewing room and we continued with 2021 and 2022 participating in Rome Art Week with an artist reception and projection alongside a full exhibition online. This year promises further exposure and an expanded audience for the 2023 group.

  • Emily Ferguson: It Girl.
    Jun 1 – Jul 13, 2024
    Nicodim Gallery
    Los Angeles, USA

    What’s an It Girl? An image of an seraphic figure, glowing almost too bright to be looked at until the flashbulbs recharge and the cameras become visible. Glamoured, the viewer is still seeing spots and rubbing their eyes as the figure stalks out of view, no-one quite sure if she’s real or not, an apparition disappeared. An apparition, by its very nature is uncertain, the intention defined by the person who sees it – The angel becomes a monster if enough people describe it so. (more…)

  • Roger Shimomura: All American
    Apr 26 – Jun 8, 2024
    Cristin Tierney Gallery
    New York, USA

    Cristin Tierney Gallery is pleased to present All American, a solo exhibition of paintings by Roger Shimomura. The exhibition opens Friday, April 26 and will be on view through June 8, 2024. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition in New York in over a decade and his first solo show at the gallery. Through juxtaposition of contemporary America and traditional Japan, the artist employs images from both cultures to create a complicated layering of pictorial information and social observation.

  • UNIQUE. Beyond Photography
    Apr 19 – Jun 8, 2024
    Brussels, Belgium

    In the UNIQUE exhibition, we explore 21 projects by artists, half of whom are under 40 and based in Belgium. What unites them is the creative gesture. It’s no longer just the photographic perspective, but the manual labor that is celebrated here. Establishing this physical connection with the artwork results in the creation of unique pieces that defy the norms of analog photography and oppose the reproducibility of digital photography.

  • Apichatpong Weerasethakul: Primitive
    Mar 8 – Jun 2, 2024
    Hong Kong

    Marking the first time the work is displayed in Hong Kong, Primitive (2009) by Thai artist and filmmaker Apichatpong Weerasethakul (b. 1970) is a multi-channel video installation that also incorporates two other short films and an artist’s book. It represents a pivotal moment in the artist’s career when the bridging of visual art, moving image, and cinema became a defining aspect of his practice. (more…)
