The 2017 edition of the European Month of Photography has begun in the Grand Duchy. The Month of Photography has been organised by Café Crème since 2007; it will continue until the end of April. The Month of Photography has taken over from the European Weeks of Image organised by the association from 2002 to 2006, with support from the Institut français.
Over the past ten years, the Month of Photography has invited itself to every possible exhibition venue, both public and private, throughout the Grand Duchy. The exhibition venues include the Casino Luxembourg, the Museum of Modern Art Grand-Duc Jean (MUDAM), the National Museum of History and Art (MNHA), and Neumünster Abbey ( Neimënster), the Espace Carré Rotondes, the Cercle Cité, and the Villa Vauban. A number of private galleries and other spaces in the financial sector, and even concept stores, have also opened up for the various photographic displays.
CAPE joins the programme
Outside Luxembourg City, the National Audiovisual Centre (CNA) in Dudelange and the gallery 'Nei Liicht', also in Dudelange regularly organise exhibitions as part of the European Month of Photography. And in Clervaux, the municipal organisation 'Cité de l’Image' takes part in the event. For the 2017 edition, the organisers are proud to announce the participation of the CAPE 'plural arts centre' in Ettelbruck.
Some of the highlights of the 6th European Month of Photography in the Grand Duchy are the openings of Time Space Continuum - photographs by Edward Steichen in dialogue with painting (at the Villa Vauban), Looking for the clouds (at the Casino Luxembourg), and the Révélations meetings platform, where rising artists and international experts can get together. The artists will present their work at a public session on 26 April, in the auditorium of the Cercle Cité. The first edition was held in 2015; the concept could result in future exhibition projects for each participating photographer.
