The Work of Anton Gautama with Celina Lunsford and Paula Tognarelli

FotoFest is pleased to present a conversation with Celina Lunsford and Paula Tognarelli, focusing on the work of artist and photographer Anton Gautama (1969-2021).

Anton Gautama was known to all who worked with him as a kind, generous, and brilliant artist. Despite the brevity of his career, Gautama quickly made a name for himself in the contemporary photography world, having participated in numerous museum exhibitions, biennial projects, and festivals around the globe including XX Encuentros Abiertos Festival de La Luz (Buenos Aires, BR, 2018), Ballarat International Foto Biennial (Victoria, AU, 2019), and the FotoFest Biennial 2020 exhibition Ten by Ten (2020). His most recent and last showing was in FotoFest’s public art exhibition Public Life:

Anton Gautama was known to all who worked with him as a kind, generous, and brilliant artist. Despite the brevity of his career, Gautama quickly made a name for himself in the contemporary photography world, having participated in numerous museum exhibitions, biennial projects, and festivals around the globe including XX Encuentros Abiertos Festival de La Luz (Buenos Aires, BR, 2018), Ballarat International Foto Biennial (Victoria, AU, 2019), and the FotoFest Biennial 2020 exhibition Ten by Ten (2020). His most recent and last showing was in FotoFest’s public art exhibition Public Life: Home and the people who live there wherein Gautama presented a suite of images from his series Home Sweet Home (2016–18), a body of work that resonated with audiences in Houston and beyond for its honest portrayal of post-immigration life and for its reflection on colonial histories.

For this program, Celina Lunsford, Artistic Director at Fotographie Forum Frankfurt, and Paula Tognarelli, Executive Director and Curator at the Griffin Museum of Photography, will join FotoFest’s curatorial team to share and discuss the work of Gautama through the lens of their unique collaborations with the artist.
