Photofusion will be running a night of free evening classes, screenings, walks and workshops including Drifting into the Night, a late-night photo-walk, led by artist Hanna Katrina Jedrosz. After a short presentation of her own work, Hanna and participants will walk through Brixton, including strolling through Windrush Square on the 70th anniversary of the arrival of the SS Empire Windrush. Technical support will also be on hand to help participants get the most out of their night-time photography.
Separately, following a studio workshop at Photofusion, artist Scarlett Crawford will be working with participants on a pop-up studio in Brixton Market, capturing Brixton’s vibrant nightlife.
Artist Melanie King will be on the rooftop of Photofusion with astronomer Paul Hill and Lumen Studios. Paul Hill will give a talk about lunar science, and guide participants to take photographs of the Moon through a collection of telescopes. Lumen will then guide the group to print their iPhone image of the Moon onto Polaroid Originals film. At the end of the event, there will be the opportunity to take home your unique polaroid of the Moon.
Also on the agenda is a panel discussion with artists Rut Blees Luxemburg, Melanie King and Maria De Paula-Vázquez talking about their experiences of the night- how it inspires and affects their practice, and the considerations that they make as female photographers working at night.
To encourage parents and carers with childcare responsibilities to join in we will be running a free creative workshop, where children from 5-16 can create ‘zines from 6pm-8pm.
Places for all events are free, but booking is essential.
Basically, Photofusion will be buzzing. The darkrooms will be open, films will be screened, work will be made, drinks will be served and conversations will be had.
If you are inspired to produce your own night-time work, we will be asking for submissions for an exhibition in August, entitled Made In Brixton – After Dark.
Representatives from the Museum of London will be selecting work for commendation from among the submissions. More details on this to be released soon.
Photofusion is intersectional, inclusive and expansive of our use of the term women.
Into the Night is produced by Photofusion in collaboration with the Museum of London and supported using funding by Arts Council England.
