THIS IS IT/NOW

The first art exhibition on Snapchat

This Is It/Now was a photographic exhibition that took place on Snapchat and utilized the ephemeral
platform to touch on the issues of changing materiality and temporality of photographic images.
It aimed to extend boundaries of exhibiting spaces and reflect on the dynamic definitions of the
networked image. The project featured 6 artists over a period of 6 weeks in August-September 2015:
Nico Krijno, Roxana Azar, Sergiy Barchuk,Ruth Van Beek, Lonneke van der Palen, David Brandon Geeting.

The project concluded with a panel discussion at Signal gallery in NY.

SRAUNUS was an international traveling photography show.
It ran from 2010 to 2013, and was exhibited in 8 locations.

Sraunus was an evolving slideshow exhibition, with each instalment showing a different selection of over
forty young photographic artists. The curated images reflected emergent trends in post-digital photography.
Through a projection-based and event-led format, Sraunus also invited critical discussion about the changing
materiality of photography and the place of the digital image in the gallery.
