Keepers of Culture – Considering Photographic Collections

format-festivalUncertain States bring together artists, collectors, curators and archivists in a day of discussion around the role and artistic importance of the collector and collections within the context of fine art photography. Collections – in any form, private or public play a unique and crucial part in the documentation of contemporary visual culture. In open discussion, speakers and audience will consider the artistic influence of these collections. Who is collecting, where are the collections being held and what and why work is preserved.

The day aims to encourage the audience that collecting can be a creative experience open to all and a superb entry level for anyone with the aspiration to start their own art collection.

Of People and Places

Reflections on the relationship between people and landscape by international photographers

Curated by Francesca Wilkins

Oxford House Gallery is delighted to present its upcoming exhibition, Of People and Places.

This exhibition brings together the work of ten selected photographers from across the world to open up a reflection on the relationship between people and landscape.

Of People and Places explores both the ways in which society’s impact visually manifests itself on the landscape, and the ways in which the land can be of significant influence to individuals, communities and – more specifically – to artists. From the Israeli countryside, across the vast expanse of the Alaskan tundra, through Italy’s suburbia and into the woodlands of Southwest England, Of People and Places takes a look at how we relate to the environment around us, whether it’s by taking in an individual’s experience of particular landscape, or reflecting on the ways in which communities find an identity in specific surroundings.

Each of the series presented in the exhibition draws inspiration from themes such as historical change, intimate memories, sociopolitical issues or questions about identity. By exhibiting established photographers alongside emerging artists, the exhibition aims to offer a multifaceted view of a wide-ranging subject.

Private view: 5 February 2015, 6-9pm

Exhibition runs: 5 February – 8 March 2015

Opening times: Mon-Fri 9am-10pm, Sat-Sun 10am-2pm
