Flash Forward Incubator 2016

This year’s theme, The Constructed Image, depends on artifice, invention and technology to create or manipulate the subject. Encouraging a vast range of creative approaches and techniques, students explored the practice of fabricating or constructing the subject of their photograph.

We are very proud of the work that all of our Flash Forward Incubator participants have completed this year. All Incubator participants will be published in – and receive copies of – the 2016 Incubator Program catalogue. We are excited to continue our support of emerging artists in their earliest steps toward their career in the arts.

The Magenta Foundation gratefully acknowledges the support of TD Bank Group for their ongoing commitment to Flash Forward and to emerging artists.
