Photoville

 

#Photoville2022 has announced extensions! 

 

After 23-days of amplifying visual stories in 20 outdoor spaces, the Photoville Festival has come to an official close. All 36 exhibits inside Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Emily Warren Roebling Plaza and piers are gone.

But that doesn’t mean we won’t return! In fact, we’ve extended exhibitions everywhere else!

We’re proud of the 11th-year show that we’ve put together this year, and grateful to our marquee, major, education, community, and exhibition and programming partners; our partners helped the Photoville team make this 2022 festival year not only possible, but an undeniable success. 

To the festival artists, who graciously shared their courageous and thought-provoking photography with the public, we are sincerely grateful for your selfless work and voice.  

We extend a thank you to our team, which includes docents who supported the Photoville staff during our Education Day held earlier this month. 

And, last but not least, thank you, festival goer, for supporting Photoville, for showing up and showing out on Opening Day and the festival days that followed!
