Biennale de l'Image Tangible

During a month of exhibitions and events located in the East and the center of Paris, the Biennale de l'Image Tangible presents a selection of works that tend to break free from a classic use of the photographic medium.

Whether it is looking for new supports, hybrid techniques or a new relationship to reality, this event tends to demonstrate that photography never stops inventing. In this, the Tangible Image Biennale supports the emergence of new languages ​​and new practices related to photography : a photograph which upsets the assumptions of reality, a photograph which changes in nature, form and postulate, and which thus participates in a broadening of the field of its discipline.

The third edition of the Biennale de l'Image Tangible will take place in November, a reference month in Paris for photography. Two geographic centers have been selected, Paris Center and East Paris.

Its program revolves around an exhibition curated by the organizers of the Biennale, and ten exhibitions bringing together the winning artists of the call for projects (February - April 2023), selected by a jury of professionals from the world of art, image and photography, and partner places.
As well as an Instagram award and a project in public space.

Registrations are over, the jury will meet on May 25 to deliberate and select the artists who will participate in the 2023 edition of the Biennale de l'Image Tangible.


The flagship exhibition, curated by the organizers of the Biennale, brought together twelve French and international artists at the Atelier Basfroi, around the themes of urban planning, the control society and surveillance tools.

Photographers or visual artists, the artists presented highlight distorted, deconstructed, reconstructed or falsified images, and are carriers of innovative photographic ideas both on the subjects addressed and the methods used.



Ten satellite exhibitions took place in the Biennale's partner venues and galleries, located in the 20e arrondissement and eastern Paris. The 31 artists exhibited were selected by a Jury of professionals from the world of art, image and photography, following a call for projects (February-May 2020).
