I am thrilled to have just been invited to be part of RAY 2018 Triennal in Germany with my series “The Third Heaven” and other works related to the festival’s theme, ‘Extreme’. The work will be shown at the Fotografie Forum Frankfurt from May to September, 2018, and I will also be giving a talk and workshop.

The exhibitions of the RAY 2018 photography triennial open at the Frankfurt partner venues on May 23 and will kick off for the first time with a festival between May 24 and May 27 with keynotes, artist talks, gallery tours and workshops. The festival center will be the MMK 3 of the MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst Frankfurt am Main.

RAY 2018 is a cooperation between photography and art institutions of the region and was founded through the initiative of the Kulturfonds Frankfurt RheinMain in 2010 in order to internationally highlight the region’s wealth of contemporary photography in collections, exhibition venues and educational institutions. Partners of RAY 2018 include Darmstädter Tage der Fotografie, Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation, Fotografie Forum Frankfurt, MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst Frankfurt am Main, Museum Angewandte Kunst, Frankfurter Kunstverein, Kunst- und Kulturstiftung Opelvillen Rüsselsheim, Nassauischer Kunstverein Wiesbaden as well as art shools of the region such as Städelschule, HfG Offenbach, Goethe Universität Frankfurt am Main, Kunsthochschule Mainz and Hochschule Darmstadt.
