Foam is proud to present an overview of the Foam Collection - an exhibition of works selected from its own collection.


In 2014, Foam presented to the public work from its own collection for the first time, in the exhibition Reflected - Works from the Foam Collection. Since then, the collection has grown from over 400 to around 550 works of art. The collection – which is focused solely on contemporary photography – is still constantly developing. Loading… Works from the Foam Collection shows a selection of the most recent additions from the last five years. It features work from 30 international photographers in a diverse exhibition that reflects Foam’s exhibition programme. From the monumental work by the French artist Naomi Goudal to experiments with negatives by the Japanese Daisuke Yokota, and from the sophisticated work of Sjoerd Knibbeler to the still lifes of the young American Daniel Gordon and the strong, colourful images by Viviane Sassen.

Foam has been working for over ten years on its growing collection that shows the development of the medium throughout the 21st century. By spotting and presenting young talented photographers at an early stage of their careers and simultaneously adding their work to the collection, the museum ensures that its collection keeps pace with the potential and development of the young artists. In this way Foam tries to recognise and record the most recent developments of the medium as contemporaneously as possible
