Photohastings and Brighton Photo Fringe present Not the Final Major Project, a collaborative exhibition as part of a season celebrating photographic practice throughout the South East.
Inspired by Brighton Photo Fringe’s mission Developing New Ways of Seeing, this group show brings together some of the best emerging talent from fine art and photography degree courses around the country, to showcase the latest contemporary themes of photography. Recent graduates and early career artists have been selected due to their engagement with the many conceptual, aesthetic and technological possibilities of photography.
Rejecting the daunting ‘finality’ attached to leaving University, this exhibition is a platform to encourage further exploration of the medium and to continue exhibiting beyond the graduate show.
An exhibition of surreal landscape paintings and drawings by local artist Katherine Reekie.
This collection of recent and past works explores our fascination with the monumental. From standing stones to topiary, the world is covered in impressive examples of humanity’s ability to create art in the landscape. Katherine presents a series of imagined scenes that explore the strange and powerful effect that scale and environment have on our perception. Her intention is not to depict reality but to nudge people to question and consider it.
