On Wednesday, January 25th, Fondazione MAST provides the works of the ﬁve ﬁnalists of the seventh edition of “MAST Photography Grant on Industry and Work”, a photography competitors on industry and work dedicated to emerging talents: Farah Al Qasimi, Hicham Gardaf, Lebohang Kganye, Maria Mavropoulou, Salvatore Vitale.
These young professional photographers, chosen from ﬁfty-three prospects from all over the world, have established an initial and unpublished job for the Fondazione MAST, which has been curated by Urs Stahel and set up in the Picture Gallery. At the opening of the exhibit, the winner of the 2023 edition will be announced.
In addition, the exhibit will also feature the works of the twenty-four ﬁnalists of the previous editions, forming a big, multi-faceted exhibit, a sort of trip of the world through images, to celebrate both MAST’s tenth anniversary and the ﬁfteen years of dedication to arranging the Grant for young photographers (the ﬁrst was awarded in 2008).
The catalogue, released by Fondazione MAST in Italian and English, is edited by Urs Stahel and consists of texts by Negar Azimi, Federica Chiocchetti, Dominik Czechowski, Elvira Dyangani Ose, and Nikolas Ventourakis, the selectors of the ﬁve artists.
