Upcoming Events and Exhibitions
Ever had that overwhelming feeling of social anxiety when the word 'networking' is muttered? Ever avoided walking up to a person and introducing yourself as a photographer or artist? Then struggled to remember what your work is, never mind coherently talk about it? If the answer to any of the above is 'yes', 'maybe' or 'please stop talking about networking', join us on the 13th July for our anti-networking event at Manchester Craft and Design Centre as part of Manifest Arts Festival.
Past Events and Exhibitions
The final two career development workshops look at the different way you can get your work out and seen in public - through exhibiting, publishing in print, and online. The first in this "Getting Seen" series concentrates on exhibitions and galleries.
Exhibiting is a great way to get your work to an audience, but unfortunately everyone else thinks so too! Many photographers investigate the idea of exhibiting but retreat, baffled by the gallery system in the UK. This workshop is about demystifying the exhibiting process. It explores:
This major group exhibition marking the Centenary of the First World War explores how artists have communicated the impact of military conflict on the body, mind, environment and human senses between 1914 and 2014.
Running from October 2014 to April 2015, at the Manchester Central Library, this series of workshops is aimed at any photographer or artist who is considering, or has recently started, working professionally, selling their work, collaborating with others, or who wants their work to be seen more widely and taken more seriously. They look in detail at the key business and professional requirements of practising photographers.
The photographic exhibition Uncovering the Invisible focuses on the diversity of backgrounds and life stories of the people that make up this culturally rich community.
While Latin Americans contribute economically and culturally to the shaping of British society, they remain unrecognised as an ethnic minority in law. These portraits have been taken in a setting entirely chosen by the individual photographed, with a strong meaning and connection to them or their identity.
MMU's Institute of Humanities and Social Science Research proudly present an exclusive exhibition of photography and community art as part of the "Encountering Corpses" symposium.
The exhibition will be comprised of three interleaved elements, all of which evoke themes of death, contemplation and empathy.
The Manchester School of Art Degree Show 2013 takes place on the Manchester Metropolitan University's All Saints Campus, off Oxford Road. BA Photography is in the Chatham and Link Galleries.
A group exhibition exploring the possibilities and limitations of still photography through its intersection with moving image, installation, sculpture and interdisciplinary practice, by graduates of Stockport BA Photography.
This new display of around 30 photographs explores just some of the different ways contemporary artists have used photography in their work.
Taken from the 1980s onward, the photographs explore the body, reinvent still-life, examine our cultural identities and explore the places where we live, work and spend our leisure time.
The display features work by influential photographer Keith Arnatt, famous British artist Helen Chadwick, Turner Prize nominee Catherine Yass and Young British Artists such as Sarah Lucas and Jane and Louise Wilson.
