Congo in conversation - Exhibition
Bronx Documentary Center, New York
September 9, 2022 - October 16, 2022
Congo in Conversation was launched in April 2020 by Finbarr O’Reilly, recipient of the 11th edition of the Carmignac Photojournalism Award dedicated to the Democratic Republic of the Congo. As the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic prevented him from traveling to the DRC to work on his reportage, O’Reilly, with the Award team, reframed his approach. Produced in close collaboration with Congolese journalists and photographers, Congo in Conversation addresses the human, social and ecological challenges that the DRC faced within the context of the global health crisis, highlighting Congolese photographers and perspectives.
The exhibition features photographs and videos by: Guylain Balume Muhindo | Arlette Bashizi | Dieudonné Dirole | Justin Makangara | Danny Matsongani | Guerchom Ndebo | Finbarr O’Reilly | Raissa Karama Rwizibuka | Charly Kasereka | Moses Sawasawa | Pamela Tulizo | Ley Uwera | Bernadette Vivuya
The exhibition is curated by Cynthia Rivera and Michael Kamber.
