FORMAT International Photography Festival Off Year Programme
QUAD Gallery & Extra Gallery Spaces
26 March - 12 June 2016 

reGeneration3 brings together 50 artists from 25 different nationalities, representing some 40 international art institutions. The works in the exhibition are distinguished by their innovative multidisciplinary approach, ranging from printing and photographic series, artists’ photobooks, multimedia installations, projections, and performance to on-site installations. 

This is the third edition of reGeneration, an exhibition project launched by the Musée de l’Elysée (Lausanne, Switzerland) in 2005, with the second edition in 2010, devoted to the international emerging photographic scene. Following the model of the two previous editions, 350 art schools and centres for artistic training around the world were contacted to send the work of their 5 most promising students. 

The exhibition is divided into three thematic sections: ‘documentary subjects’, ‘new expressions’ and ‘the question of memory and the dematerialisation of the image’. The 50 artists selected encompass a broad vision of the interests and practices of the emerging artistic scene, selected on both a visual and theoretical basis to represent the diversity of photography today. The participating artists come from a wide range of countries: India, Poland, Czech Republic, Cambodia, New Zealand, Switzerland, the United States and the United Kingdom.

The following artists are included in the exhibition:
Magdalena Baranya (CH), Emile Barret (FR), Mohit Bhatia (IN), Giacomo Bianchetti (CH), Rachel Boillot (US), Jan Brykczyński (PL), Delphine Burtin (CH/FR), Juno Calypso (UK), Rachel Cox (US), Angélica Dass (BR/ES), Emilie De Battista (CH), Michael Etzensperger (CH), Veronika Geiger (DK), Anna Gutová et Gabriel Fragner (CZ), Artur Gutowski (PL), Elizabeth Hewson (UK), Karl Isakson (SE), Jung A Kim (KR), Jonna Kina (FI), Karel Koplimets (EE), Marek Kucharski et Diana Lelonek (PL), Ola Lanko (UA), Jae Hoon Lee (KR), Michael Liani (IL), Silin Liu (CN), Emily Macinnes (UK), Robert Mainka (PL), Irene Muñoz Martin (ES), Loan Nguyen (CH/FR), Nobukho Nqaba (ZA), Martyna Pawlak (FR/PL), Emilio Pemjean (ES/CL), Constance et Philippine Proux (FR), Laurence Rasti (CH), Simon Rimaz (CH), Jacinthe Robillard (CA), Paul Samuels (ZA), Ulrike Schmitz (DE), Juuke Schoorl (NL), Corinne Silva (UK), Sara Skorgan Teigen (NO), Gaia Squarci (IT), Harit Srikhao (TH), Benjamin Swanson (UK), Jennifer Thoreson (US), Sinan Tuncay (TR), Matt Waples (CA), Piotr Zbierski (PL), Tereza Zelenkova (CZ), Li Zhi (CN).
