Response: a democratic experimental exhibition
This exhibition was aimed at promoting upcoming talent, via peer photographers. The Lucy Bell Gallery and The Miniclick Photography Talks held the ‘Everyone is a Curator’ event as part of the Brighton Photo Fringe 2013.
Around 100 photographers submitted about 700 digital images, which were then checked out on screen, by the public and the event curators (including Eleanor MacNair (White Cube Gallery), Helen Trompeteler (NPG), Rachel Segal Hamilton (Ideas Tap), Laura Pannack (photographer), Lucy Bell (Lucy Bell Gallery) and Jim Stephenson (Miniclick Founder)). Selected photos were printed there and then and pinned to a wall, to create a constantly changing and evolving exhibition. The public then marked their favourite prints, and the event curators selected 10 of the most popular images for reprinting at 20 × 30 inches and inclusion in the Response exhibition at The Lucy Bell Gallery the following week.
The standard was incredibly high, and due to the very high number of entries the live curation ran into a second day. The reaction to the process and the evolving exhibition, both from the public and photographers who submitted work, was superb, and the weekend had a buzzing, exciting atmosphere. This exhibition is made up of the work of ten photographers selected from the ‘Everyone is a Curator’ event, by the curators, the peers and the public. The show at the Lucy Bell Gallery also featured a large-scale photograph of the evolving exhibition from the ‘Everyone is a Curator’ event as it was when it closed at 5pm on Sunday 3 November.
The 10 selected photographers: Christopher Bethell, Jocelyn Allen, Richard Cutler, Peter Gates, Sam Laughlin, Margaret Mitchell, Nikosono, Kajal Nisha Patel, Kristina Salgvik, Amelia Shepherd.
Just graduated with an MA Photography degree with distinction from Brighton University. Comments on my final project Insecta:
''An ambitious and very confident project exquisitely handled throughout, culminating in an exceptionally beautiful book. I'd really love to own this!''
(Mark Power, Magnum photographer and lecturer)
''Highly focused, sophisticated and visually seductive work. The attention to technical detail, design, display and resolution is extraordinary.''
(Fergus Heron, photographer and lecturer)
''The book that you have produced is really beautiful and complex and thoughtful.''
(Joanna Lowry, MA Photography Course Leader, Brighton University)
▲ Installation views of my Insecta project in /world.
I will be exhibiting my latest project Insecta for my master’s degree show.
The Faculty of Arts Gallery
University of Brighton
68 Grand Parade
Brighton BN2 0JY
All are welcome to the private view: Friday 20 September from 6 pm.
The project looks at the human need to collect and catalogue, and our fascination with the natural world. I couldn’t have done it without The Booth Museum of Natural History allowing me to root around its collections.
