Past Events and Exhibitions
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.
This spring, one of Manchester’s landmark buildings hosts Hit the North, a major group art exhibition, produced by Hobo Photo.
Dr Alasdair Foster, Leverhulme Visiting Professor from Melbourne and Ambassador to the Asia-Pacific PhotoForum, is one of the most original, provocative and inspiring thinkers in photography. We are delighted to welcome him to Manchester during a brief visit to the UK for a keynote lecture that sets the scene for the next National Photography Symposium later in 2018 on The Future of Work in Photography.
Photgrapher Andrew Susich has spent the last five years documenting life in the San Francisco Bay Area and Manchester using a 35mm Leica M6 camera and Illford film.
