PARALLEL – European Photo Based Platform brings together creative European organisations committed to promoting cross-cultural exchanges and mentorships in order to set new standards in contemporary photography. The Platform is composed by 18 high-level players from 16 countries, ensuring a wide geographical spread. With its large and diverse network, PARALLEL aims at establishing an extensive and effective exhibition platform for European new artists and curators and promoting a fluid and functional link between them and the exhibitors (museums, galleries, festivals).
PARALLEL also intends to remove artificial boundaries between artists and curators to create grounds for fostering new ideas and new forms of artistic cooperation in a process that promotes synergies and cross-fertilisation.
PARALLEL is designed and lead by Procur.arte and supported by the Creative Europe Program.
