Taking Part

Eva Sajovic, Gemma-Rose Turnbull, D. Wiafe, and Wright & Vandame
22 February 2018 to 17 March 2018

A group exhibition of socially-engaged photography by Eva Sajovic, Gemma-Rose Turnbull, D. Wiafe, and Wright & Vandame. Curated by Anthony Luvera.

In September 2016, Photofusion launched a participatory photography residency programme to enable four emerging artists to work with communities across South London, while receiving mentorship and opportunities for developing and sharing their practice. Over 100 artists applied after attending developmental workshops, and an esteemed judging panel made up of Wendy Ewald (Artist), Christiane Monarchi (Photomonitor), Gina Glover (Artist), Lizzy King (Photofusion), and Anthony Luvera (Artist) selected the four artists whose projects are showcased in this exhibition.

The artists’ collaborative projects span a range of communities and contexts, from young people in Pollard’s Hill Estate; the customers, passers by and residents local to the Brixton Pound community cafe; tenants and customers of the Elephant and Castle shopping centre; to the residents and local community services of Railton Road. Collectively, all of the work on show expresses the points of view of the participants alongside the artists as together they used photography to represent themselves and the things that matter to them.

Dates: 22 February - 17 March 2018

Open: 10:30 - 17:30 (Tuesday - Saturday)
