Two Openings

Posted in Minescape with tags , , on May 10, 2011 by brettvanort

May 13 will see my work opening in two different venues in two different cities on the same night.  Hopefully it won’t be the last time this happens, but it will definitely be a first.

If you are in Liverpool from May 13 – June 26 you can see Minescape at LOOK Liverpool Festival.  My work will be included in a group show entitled Collateral Damage and will be hanging alongside the likes of Simon Norfolk, Tim Hetherington, Zijah Gafic, Paul Lowe, Edmund Clark, Lisa Barnard,  Ashley Gilbertson, Mishka Henner, Adam Broomberg and Olivier Chanarin.

May 13-June 26

That same night in London you can visit The Opportunity Area in the Shopping Center in Elephant and Castle to see a collection of work that looks at the regeneration of the area.  My audio visual of time lapse of the area from mid-2009 will be on view as will be a collection of great projects from other artists I’ve been associated with for over two years now.  This show will be on view from 13 May-22 May.

13 May-22 May

So there is something for those of you in the North and the South.  Don’t say I’m not trying to spread the work and the word around!

As Minescape at 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning heads into its final week, I encourage you to go and see the work in Brixton.  The next stop for the work will be in Liverpool from May 13-June 26.  Minescape will be part of a group show at the LOOK Liverpool festival.  The show will be at the Contemporary Urban Center (CUC) in Liverpool and will share wall space will am amazing lineup of photographers.  Included in the group show “Collateral Damage”, my work will hang alongside the likes of Simon Norfolk, Edmund Clark, Tim Hetherington, Zijah Gafic, Paul Lowe, Lisa Barnard,  Ashley Gilbertson, Adam Broomberg and Olivier Chanarin, and Mishka Henner.  Harry Hardie and Paul Lowe have collaborated to curate the exhibition.

May 13-June 26

I’m truly honored to be able to exhibit my work alongside the likes of these artists.  “Collateral Damage” will focus on images associated with atrocity that do not depict the actual act of violence or the victim itself, but rather depicts the circumstances around which such acts occurred.

In addition to this show at the CUC, Ed Burtynsky shows work from the Deepwater Horizon catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico last year and Robert Polidori shows work from “New Orleans After the Flood”, also at the CUC.
