FIX Photo Festival
12 — 21 May 2017 at FIX Photo Festival in London, United Kingdom
FIX Photo Festival - An annual celebration of consummate photography in all its forms.
FIX Photo is produced and curated by LANG Director Laura Noble. This free exhibition of photography includes works by an array of domestic and international talent.
FIX Photo celebrates the many facets of the medium in all its guises. Accompanied by pop-ups and a programme of events, there are creative discoveries for everyone.
In this, the second year of the festival, FIX Photo is curated in response to the consequences of the dramatic political shifts of 2016. Exhibiting artists will issue a positive challenge to the social and cultural divisions of the past year through the presentation of work connected by four key themes of Identity, Community, Unity & Harmony and Environment.
Displaying work by established artists as well as new talent, FIX Photo is committed to giving emerging artists the opportunity to share their work outside of a traditional gallery context. Hosted over four floors alongside the Thames, this unique display in a building full of character offers an idiosyncratic contrast to a formal white space. Situated within the heart of the cultural centre of London, FIX Photo aims to encourage new audiences to photography as the ultimate democratising medium in the arts. FIX Photo promises a visual treat for audiences and a variety as broad as the medium itself.
FIX Photo will explore these themes through fine art photography, photojournalism, street photography and portraiture and fully embrace the diversity and inclusivity of the medium. Exhibiting the highest standard of work artists will celebrate the scope of talent on the photographic scene. This exhibition will also include the premier viewing of Chris Steele-Perkins current ‘The New Londoners’ project - exploring London’s diversity through family portraits inside people’s homes of almost 200 Nationalities residing in the capital.
Partnering with online community heavyweights Photocrowd and innovative ultra high quality photography printers LumeJet, we will be launching the FIX Photo Festival Awards 2017. The finalists, winners and a selection of notable entries will be displayed as part of the festival.
Featuring artists from four continents - each with their own unique view of the world: Zaklina Anderson, Susan Barnett, Richard Bram, Brittain Bright, Alicia Bruce, Carlotta Cardana, Mike Crawford, Yvonne De Rosa, Giovanna Del Sarto, Elaine Duigenan, Jessa Fairbrother, Mischa Haller, Sandra Jordan, Grant Legassick, Holly Lynton, Celine Marchbank, Christian Nilson, Robert D. Phillips, Kuriko Sano, Herb Schmitz, Einar Sira, Chris Steele-Perkins and Kevin Vucic-Shepherd.
FIX Photo will be open for nine days at the stunning central London Bargehouse venue. The festival coincides with Photo London at Somerset House and Off Print at Tate Modern and promises to be an essential addition to the spring calendar. Artist’s talks, curator tours, book launches, signings and events will run throughout.
