Uncertain 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.

Uncertain States are on a bus trip with Tom Hunter
Life on the Road was Tom Hunter’s famous photographic document of life on a double-decker bus, ‘Le Crowbar’ as it travelled across Europe in the ’90s.
Well, he’s back on a bus!
Tom Hunter is on the road again…. Friday 10th June – this time as Uncertain States travelling companion on our trip to The Format Derby. We are thrilled and eternally grateful that Tom has agreed to talk to us on our journey.
So why don’t you join Tom and Ucs. on a jaunt to cosmopolitan Derby on June 10th for a day of talks about collecting photography entitled, Keepers of Culture.
