Upcoming Events and Exhibitions
This November, international campaign movement With One Voice is holding the first ever International Arts and Homelessness Summit and Festival. The events are based on the acknowledgement that homelessness is not just about housing and practical ‘house-lessness’, and look to investigate how the arts are being used effectively around the world to reduce social isolation by building social networks and increasing both physical and mental health, improving public attitudes/promoting understanding towards people who are or have been homeless, and enabling homeless people to express themselves so their voice can be heard.
Photographic artist Ingrid Pollard joins Redeye to talk about her life, work, and unique approach to photography.
Ingrid Pollard was born in Georgetown, Guyana in 1953 and moved to England when she was four years old. Since then she has lived in London working as a photographer, printer, media artist and researcher.
Rut Blees Luxemburg's technique is to take photographs at night, mostly exploring the urban landscape. Rut employs long exposures to allow her to use the light emanating from the street only, for instance from office blocks or street lights in her photos. Many of her photographs and prints deal with nocturnal themes.
Past Events and Exhibitions
There is nothing linear about femininity - or what it means to be a woman - in the 21st century. Sex and gender are not limited to the monolithic paradigm of genetics; they are informed by something intangible, and it this essence of the female paradox that makes Allie's work as relevant as it is important and sets her apart form others in her field.
An exhibition of recent work by the photographic technicians at The University of Bolton (Roxana Allison, Tyrone Anderson, Mario Popham)
The word ‘techne’ is the term given by ancient Greeks to the practice of making and doing, as opposed to ‘episteme’ which is related to knowing. In their guise as technicians, it is the making and doing and the promotion of craft and skill that defines their role. These skills that have been honed over years are regularly put into the service of their own creative concerns. This exhibition showcases their personal photographic endeavours that are wide-ranging and ambitious in scope.
'Act of Possession' by Richard Stout incorporates elements of visual image, video and design and will open on the 29th June at Hatch, Oxford Road.
