People and Places Commission

THE COMMISSION
Photofusion is pleased to announce a new ‘supported commission’ and residency for early/mid career Lambeth based artists. The project is run in collaboration with 3Space and funded by Arts Council England and Lambeth Council through its Townhall Art Programme.
 
We are interested in projects that explore diverse, local experiences of leadership – and shine a light on the vast number of communities and groups living in Lambeth today.  Artists will be given the opportunity to meet Lambeth Councillors and through them meet with key local figures, to create work that engages with ideas of leadership and themes specific to different areas of the borough.
 
The project is inspired by a series of photographic Councillor Portraits, commissioned in 1903, when the Borough of Lambeth was established, currently on display in Lambeth town hall. The commissioned work will be displayed in the Town Hall, Brixton in 2020 as a reflection of leadership in the borough over a century on.
 
This opportunity is specifically for early/mid career artists who are yet to receive their first professional commission. The project will incorporate support and guidance from the team of specialist staff at Photofusion. 

WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO APPLY?
This opportunity is open to artists who are:

  • Lambeth residents
  • Early-Mid career practitioners yet to receive their first commission
  • Any age
  • Working in a lens based practice
