15–19 January 2014
As part of the 26th London Art Fair the guest curators of this year’s Photo50 exhibition are once again set to present 50 works by selected artists. The fair is a major event in the UK’s modern and contemporary art calendar. With the title “Immaterial Matter,” Charlie Fellowes and Jeremy Epstein, directors of the London gallery Edel Assanti, will exhibit photographic works by a total of seven artists.
Fellowes and Epstein have managed to show traditional documentary-style photography, digitally generated images and video and web installations of the artists Aram Bartholl, Constant Dullaart, Joe Hamilton, Nicolai Howalt, Brenna Murphy, Andrew Norman Wilson and Kate Steciw as part of the Photo50 exhibition.
The pieces shed light on developments in analogue and digital photography and at the same time seek to examine the widely held perception of both modes. Talking about the exhibition Fellowes and Epstein say: “this exploration is enacted playfully at times, in work that attempts to situate itself on the boundary between the ascribed realms of the digital and material, and progressively elsewhere, in works that describe new ontologies and geographies that are developing as a result of the prevalence of free circulating digital information.”
The Photography Focus Day on 15 January will comprise a series of talks and discussions on contemporary photography. For more information check londonartfair.co.uk/photographyday.
