The FotoFest 2016 Biennial, the Sixteenth International Biennial of Photography and Photo-related Arts, takes place March 12 – April 24, 2016, in Houston, Texas. The FotoFest Biennials draw over 250,000 visitors during the course of their six-week run. They attract visitors and participants from over 35 countries. They are one of the world’s longest-running, largest, and most respected international photographic art events.
Across the globe, millions of people are acting on the crises affecting the sustainability of life as we know it on this planet. As an estimated 400,000 people recently participated in international demonstrations concerning the issues of environmental change, thousands of others are responding, with small and large projects, to the challenges of protecting, preserving and developing the resources of the planet in sustainable ways.
CHANGING CIRCUMSTANCES will present artists, experts, scientists, writers, and policy makers looking at the inter-connected issues of climate change, population growth and migration, globalized use of natural resources, capital, and the impact of new technologies. The exhibitions and other programs will focus on the future of the Earth by examining challenges, and by proposing new ideas and solutions.
