As part of the Live and Loud festival, one of my pictures will be on show at Selfridges, Birmingham on Saturday 3rd October on level 1 (1pm-7pm). The show is a taster for the SALON exhibition coming up in November this year.
Jonathon Will, Tony Blood, Laura Moseley and Angelika Molek have used the photography and artistic skills developed during the course of their degree to create reponses to the themes of Landscape, People, Art and Industry. Four very different series of images emerges focusing on the post industrial communities and landscapes of the Black Country, to the new and emerging nascent possibilities of the present showing local people making their lives and living in the Black Country, now.
Four different types of work and approaches to the themes are on show. Jon Wills transforms images of industry and individuals in to intriguing montages which merge the people and their place of work; Tony Blood and Angelica Molek use a more traditional documentary approach to show work and living in the region, whilst Laura Moseley’s images are close observations of the interaction of people and the landscape they inhabit. David Shepherd, a previous graduate from the university, has done a fantastic job of co-ordinating the exhibitions.
The graduates work is on display at The School of Art and Design, Wolverhampton in the Bessant Gallery from 1 September to 31 October and is open to the public from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm. You can see the work on a larger scale, bringing art to the masses, in Dudley Street, Wolverhampton from September to December 2014.
In association with University of Wolverhampton, Wolverhampton Art Gallery and Arts Council England there will be a group exhibition on 1st September to October 31st 2014 at The Bessant Gallery. The work was commissioned as part of the Black Country Echoes Festival which celebrates manufacturing traditions. To coincide with the exhibition and festival the groups of work will be on displayed on banners in Dudley Street, Wolverhampton.
