Please join alumna Francesca Filippini Pinto, Director of Business Development at The Photographers’ Gallery for an out-of-hours tour of the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize and Dave Heath: Dialogues with Solitudes exhibitions, followed by drinks and nibbles.
Now in its twenty-second year, the Prize recognises artists and projects deemed to have made a significant contribution to photography over the previous twelve months in Europe. This year’s shortlisted artists are Laia Abril, Susan Meiselas, Arwed Messmer and Mark Ruwedel. Collectively their projects explore state and gender politics, social injustice, human rights and conceptual approaches to image-making.
Dave Heath: Dialogues with Solitudes is the first major UK exhibition dedicated to the work of this influential American photographer (b. 1931 USA, d. 2016 Canada). His psychologically charged images both reflect and respond to the alienation particularly prevalent in post-war North American society.
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 26 April 2019.
