PARIS.- Created in 2007 by the musée du quai Branly and dedicated to non-Western photography, the 3rd edition of the PHOTOQUAI biennial exhibition of world images takes place on the quays of the Seine alongside the musée du quai Branly, extending for the first time into the museum garden.

Acclaimed since its first edition for its quality, originality, ambition and relevance, in 2011 PHOTOQUAI will continue to pursue its original mission: showcasing artists whose work is little known in Europe, stimulating communication and allowing for an exchange of world views.

The artistic director of the third biennial PHOTOQUAI exhibition is the photographer and director Françoise Huguier.

Her role is to coordinate the programming committee that brings together image specialists associated with correspondents in the field who are responsible for discovering emerging photographic talents, unknown or little known in Europe.

For its third edition, PHOTOQUAI presents nearly 400 works by 46 contemporary photographers from 29 countries: South Africa, Congo, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Tanzania, Togo, Morocco, Tunisia, Bahrain, Iraq, Belarus, Russia, China, South Korea, India, Japan, Taiwan, Cuba, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Colombia, Brazil.

PHOTOQUAI complements its focus of artists with associations through artistic partners throughout the capital: The Australian Embassy, the École Spéciale d’Architecture, the Baudoin Lebon Gallery, the Clémentine de la Féronnière, the In Camera Gallery, the Paris-Beijing Gallery, the Maison d'Amérique Latine, the Maison Européenne de la Photographie, the Petit Palais, the Polka Galerie and the Eiffel Tower where 46 photographers of the Biennial present 46 completely new works.

The musée du quai Branly will also offer the public encounters based around this third edition: encounter with the photographers and curators invited to Paris, meetings with image professionals for debates and/or screenings, and the presentation of the winners of the Photographic Artistic Creation Aid Grant, which was launched by the musée du quai Branly with the support of the Total Foundation.

Photoquai 2011 is a voyage through the clamour of the world, stimulated by photographers' perceptions of the state of their societies and of cultures other than their own. For us, they act as watchmen, guards, preventing us from falling asleep.

Artistic director: Françoise Huguier, important photographer and creator of the biennial at Bamako who has been involved for over thirty years with the adventure of photography. Her works both on the “dark continent” and in the Great North have been recognised twice by the "Villa Médicis hors les murs" prize.
