19 Nov – 18 Dec, 2011
PREVIEW: FRIDAY 18 NOVEMBER, 6 – 8 PM
Through an international open call Brighton Photo Fringe Open ‘11 has brought together a diverse group of curators and artists to explore different perspectives on the critical issues emerging from contemporary photographic practice.
The artists exhibited in the Open ’11 exhibition have been chosen by a curatorial collective, made up of curators, practitioners, gallerists and critics, for the ways in which they explore photographic practice and redefine disciplinary boundaries.
Emerging from curator-artist dialogues and the contributions of a group of selected events curators and guest writers, a series of related events and texts has evolved for both the gallery space and online forums.
Exhibiting artists: Alexander Nicolas Gehring, Steffi Klenz, Jessica Mallock, Nadege Meriau, Pedro Ramos, Preston is my Paris, Tom Saunderson, Daniel Stier and Casey Wilson.
The Open ‘11 events include artist talks, a live publishing platform, In Conversations, workshops, gallery talks, a lens-based artists programme and projects that generate discussion about the broader context of contemporary photography. All events are free, check website for booking details.
A collection of texts written by a selected group of internationally based curators in response to the artist open call will be available online and from the exhibition library.
