[T]he International Meeting Place Portfolio Review for Artists, an integral part of the FotoFest 2016 Biennial, gives artists the opportunity to meet and show their work to top arts professionals from around the world. The event is truly a “meeting place” – a place where photographic artists, arts professionals, collectors, and colleagues network, collaborate, share ideas, and establish life-long connections.
The Meeting Place Portfolio Review brings together over 500 photographic artists from around the world and across the United States, with over 160 professional reviewers. It is the largest portfolio review program in the world.
Whether you are looking for practical results for a completed body of work, or feedback on work in progress, the Meeting Place offers you the opportunity to present your portfolio to a wide range of photography decision-makers who can help assist in your future career development – an exhibition, purchase of your work, an arts residency, or the publication of your work in a magazine or book.
FotoFest invites some of the most important people in the field of photography from around the world to come to Houston, to meet registered artists and review their portfolios. Reviewers include museum curators, publishers, gallery owners, directors of non-profit organizations, magazine editors, collectors, and representatives of photography agencies.
