Research output: Practice-Based and Non-textual ResearchExhibition

Abstract

In September 2016, Photofusion launched a participatory photography residency programme by Anthony Luvera to enable four emerging artists to work with communities across South London, while receiving opportunities for developing and sharing their practice and mentorship by Luvera. Over 100 artists applied after attending developmental workshops, and an esteemed judging panel made up of Wendy Ewald (Artist), Christiane Monarchi (Photomonitor), Gina Glover (Artist), Lizzy King (Photofusion), and Anthony Luvera (Artist) selected the four artists whose projects are showcased in this exhibition. The artists’ collaborative projects span a range of communities and contexts, from young people in Pollard’s Hill Estate; the customers, passers by and residents local to the Brixton Pound community cafe; tenants and customers of the Elephant and Castle shopping centre; to the residents and local community services of Railton Road. Collectively, all of the work on show expresses the points of view of the participants alongside the artists as together they used photography to represent themselves and the things that matter to them. Coinciding with Taking Part, Anthony Luvera programmed a public talks event, entitled Taking Part Talks, which took place on 10th March 2018. This event sought to unpack issues central to socially engaged photographic practice related to representation and engagement, intention and benefits, ethics and aesthetics, and process and product, featuring presentations by Sophie Hope (Birkbeck, University of London), Eva Sajovic (University of the Arts London), Gemma-Rose Turnbull (artist), D. Wiafe (artist), Wright & Vandame (artist), and Mariam Zulfiqar (Curator, UP Projects).
