Photo UCLAN lecturer and MA Course Leader, Brian J Morrison is producing a new exhibition in collaboration with Artist Emily Warner and contemporary art critic Jonathan P Watts as part of four week public art program, DOMINO in Norwich.
DOMINO is proposed as the first of a sequence of SAVORR led programmes that will launch a self-supporting network with other regional art scenes. Here, two artists from Birmingham, Brian J Morrison and Emily Warner, have been invited to create new work for the first floor of The Shoe Factory. Working in dialogue with contemporary art critic Jonathan P. Watts, the progression of the invited artists’ ideas will be documented and such material will be on display for visitor insight and discussion.
Resist, resist release, will see Brian and Emily work collaboratively to produce works informed by crossovers in their practice. Both Artists are interested in the body and its relationship to art and will develop a response to each other and the exhibition space.
As part of the exhibition Brian and Emily will be acting as judges for a film/moving image open call. To submit to this please follow the link below.
More information and documentation of the project will be updated on the SAVORR webspace during the production week.
To celebrate the launch of our second edition of NORTH, a publication of undergraduate, postgraduate and staff projects along side commissioned pieces of writing and interviews, we are making the first edition available for free download.
The first edition of North was an attempt to challenge the traditional degree show model, giving students the opportunity to be featured in a publication with distribution across the UK and Europe.
The success of this new model, has inspired a new edition of the publication which will be launched on Wednesday 9th at the Fieldwork Conference. To receive your free copy of Volume one simply click here and follow the download request information.
We hope you enjoy these two editions of PhotoUCLan’s best and brightest visual practitioners.
Sara Foryame who graduated from PhotoUCLan in 2015,and was featured in NORTH Volume I, has been developing an expansive project that aims to support Arab creatives. As part of this project there will be exhibition taking place in London on the 10th November.
The exhibition showcases a diverse and refreshing selection of work that encourages dialogue about the power of connection and the importance of reconnecting with the community. With this, Reconnecting Arts, invites the audience to reflect on their own identity as well as discover similarities between them, the work and the artists.
