Biennale of Female Photography 2020 | Work
5th - 29th March

The (in)visible eye

Created bythe cultural association “La Papessa” of Mantua and featuring the artistic direction of Alessia Locatelli, the Biennale of Female Photography is an international event focusing on contemporary female production.The artists of our first edition have concentrated their eye on the theme of work,observed in its multifaceted forms and manifestations. Photography is not only made of images, but it is also a space for discussions and conversations. Alongside the exhibitions, our program includes talks and portfolio reviews (with the support of Italy Photo Award).

The words, works and experiences of women photographers, curators and experts of the sector become one body, crystallizing in history and memory views and thoughts often made invisible.

Like many other cultural initiatives, our first edition was affected by the pandemic, leading us to review our plans in order to continue our work. For this reason, we first launched BFF Goes Live (with interviews and live events on social media), then BFF Here Now over the summer when we finally opened the festival to the public.
