Our next exhibition, ‘Interventions & Interruptions’ will open on September 26th. This exhibition will feature the work of four artists whose divergent individual practices, ranging from documentary photography to book-making, installation and still life, are all highly experimental. More info…
Last summer we started our Saturday Session, where we invited members to come along and share their work with each other. If you have a project you would like to get some feedback on, or if you just want to join in the conversation, please come along.

Critical Contemplations: On Youth
22nd August 2018
The event Critical Contemplations: On Youth brought together a range of artists for an evening of discussion and debate around the representation of youth culture in photography. The event came out of our programme run in collaboration with the Museum of London’s show, London Nights, in which we explored what it means to photograph at night, the barriers that make it difficult, including the practical limitations of child care or technical skill, but also the fear or vulnerability of working in this way. Speaking about their practice were the artists Aliyah Otchere, and D Wiafe, who both document youth culture in very different ways. Aliyah, documents youth culture based on her experiences as an 18 year old creative in London, where D’s participatory practice sees him working with young people from a south London council estate exploring what it means to be perceived as gang affiliated.
The event was facilitated to structure the discussion, with provocations and ideas facilitated by Chardine Taylor-Stone, an artist, writer and activist.
Each event will be recorded and available to listen again via a series of podcasts.
