Disparity Collective Q&A
Positions of Power, is an exhibition from Disparity Collective who are currently partaking in Lightbox 2017/18. Redeye’s Lightbox is an intensive year-long course, which launches the careers of professional photographers through workshops, networking sessions and support from experts in the photography industry. The programme is designed to challenge assumptions, encourage reflection and nurture artistic potential, with collaboration at its core. Each group receives mentoring support and guidance from individual experts. Disparity Collectives assigned mentor is Kate Jesson, Curator at Manchester City Art Gallery.
Positions of Power is an exhibition based around themes of power. The exhibition is designed to present the images in a thematic sequence that are set to challenge the conformities of power and where it stands today. Framing interpretations from seven North West visual artists, the exhibition will develop an understanding of each individual photographers take on different forms of power.
Disparity Collective is formed of seven photographers; Keeley Bentley, Drew Forsyth, Claire Griffiths, Mark Hobbs, Jamal Jameel, Abbie Jennings and Conrad Ohnuki.
