CINCINNATI, OH.- FotoFocus launches the second edition of its Biennial from October 8 – November 1, 2014, in Cincinnati, Ohio. The opening week programming will run October 8-12 and will feature screenings, lectures and performances by artists, curators, critics and art world professionals all focused on one theme: Photography in Dialogue.

The program at Memorial Hall includes keynote speaker Jeff L. Rosenheim, curator in charge of the Department of Photographs at the metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, who will discuss photography and the civil War on Friday, October 10. Special guest John Waters—American filmmaker, collector, visual artist, actor and writer—will perform This Filthy World on Saturday, October 11. Additionally, Waters’ photograph Inga #3 (1994) is part of the FotoFocus exhibition Stills, co-curated by FotoFocus artistic director and curator Kevin Moore and San Francisco publisher Nion Mcevoy. “

"FotoFocus has a long-standing tradition of supporting institutions and photography exhibitions throughout the region,” said FotoFocus Executive Director Mary Ellen Goeke. “With Kevin Moore’s exciting new curatorial direction for our 2014 Biennial, we are also presenting an expanded program that will take place during the opening week. Curators, artists, art professionals and supporters from all across the country and around the world are converging to celebrate in Cincinnati. It’s a proud moment for us to help nurture a growing art scene here and to be part of the international conversation about contemporary photography and film.”

"I am honored to be part of this second edition of the FotoFocus Biennial and to have the chance to curate such a variety of simultaneous exhibitions and to organize the public lectures,” said Kevin Moore. “The theme Photography in Dialogue was first established with the CAC’s enthusiasm to produce The One-Eyed Thief, and it has proven a rich theme for developing the other 5 exhibitions. Visitors will enjoy all kinds of dialogues through these exhibitions: photography in dialogue with other mediums, such as film, which is featured in Screenings, Stills, as well as The One-Eye Thief; dialogues with photography’s present and past, as seen in David Benjamin Sherry: Western Romance; and perhaps most importantly, photography as a dialogue with the world around us, as glimpsed in Vivian Maier’s street photography, as well as one other, which is the whole point of FotoGram@ArtHub. With this variety of shows, I hope everyone will find something stirring, compelling, thought provoking, or all of the above.”
