Touchstones Rochdale Gallery; the Nowruz/New Day exhibition.

Nowruz/New Day presents the results of the unique collaboration between the Art Fund Collection of Middle Eastern Photography, assembled by the British Museum and the V&A and the Global Conversations, a group of refugees who meet on a weekly basis at nearby St. Chad’s Church in Rochdale who co-curated the exhibition with Touchstones. The exhibition poses a range of critical questions about the collection of Middle Eastern Photography and, more generally, how the Middle East is presented through the media.

To kick off the Autumn 2019 Redeye series of events, join us for an in conversation with three talented artists, Edmund Clark, Roxana Allison, and Pablo Allison. Each will be presenting their latest work and discussing the similarities and differences between their approach, style and subject matter.

Photographic artist and Redeye Member, Natalie Wardle returns to host an evening that includes presentations from other talented northern photographers Sade Mica and Lucie Crewdson whose work looks at the human form in visual art and performance.

Natalie Wardle is a visual artist and photographer from Manchester. Her work looks at how women construct their bodies to fit in with society’s ideal body types, exploring shapewear and tape that is placed over nipples to both cover and repress their form.

The work of Sade Mica explores her experiences navigating the world as a queer, black person and the nuances that brings in fleshing out an identity that is often met with contempt and confusion.

Lucie Crewdson is a photographer living and working in Manchester. Lucie's photographic practise revolves around everyday experiences, the use of the body, elements of performance and sits within a fashion and fine art context.

In our experience, everyone is going about their business, talking about the success stories of their career to apply for new work. And so they should. But isn't it freeing to hear about the things that haven't quite gone to plan? Isn't it encouraging to know most people have experienced projects that go totally wrong? Yes!. This is a session to learn from each other's different situations to prevent future issues for yourself.

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.

The third in a new series of events to connect and support the photographic community in and around Sheffield. The sessions are presented by Redeye members Karina Lax and Jeremy Abrahams. This event features the work of Arpita Shah and the late Martin Jenkinson, and also includes time for discussion and networking.

During this event, Illuminate will introduce presentations from artists involved in their project and other guest speakers, investigating the lasting impact and legacy of Hull City of Culture 2017, specifically the impact it had on Hull and its cultural industries. The session will also provide Hull-based photographers with a platform to develop their network.
