The events

From the 5th to the 9th of September we are organising our first exhibition at Four Corners Gallery, London during which we will show works by the members of the collective whilst we also host two free creative events.

The first one, happening on the 8th of September, would be a collaborative workshop between Revolv and other collectives. Together we would work on the creation of a self-published zine, featuring the works of the artists that we have already showcased on our respective platforms. The zine will be available free of charge for our visitors.

The second event will take place on the 9th of September and will consist of talks by four guest speakers from the creative industry. They will introduce their practice and give advice on creative topics drawing upon their own experiences of the art world.We would like to make this happen whilst keeping our events free but ensuring that our guests get compensated for their time and contributions.

We believe that by hosting free events we will help students, graduates and emerging artists to enrich their practice, develop their skills and expand their knowledge, hence this campaign is very important to us!

London Alternative Photography Collective

The first collective we will be working with is London Alternative Photography Collective, led by three artists. For our zine-making workshop, we will have Melanie King and Almudena Romero as our guests. The collective specifically focuses on how analogue and alternative photography processes are used in contemporary art. The London Alternative Photography Collective organises talks, symposia, exhibitions, workshops and demonstrations. Through these activities, the London Alternative Photography Collective aims to support practitioners who use traditional photographic processes in new ways.

Pupil Sphere

Pupil Sphere, created by Daniel Ainsworth whilst undertaking a BA in Photography, are the second collective taking part of our event. The Pupil Sphere is aimed at student photographers post & present and provides a platform to publish work within the photographic community. The Pupil Sphere features regular articles by selected photographers. Unlike other websites we are aimed at students of all genres of photography.  

Chrono Collective

And the last guests that we will have for this event are Chrono Collective. Their aims are to showcase the best young and unexposed talent within photography- those who are somehow reflecting our times within pictures, and present this work within a magazine format.  

Felicity Hammond

Our first guest speaker is Felicity Hammond, whose work focuses on photography and installation. She is interested in political contradictions within the urban landscape and her work explores construction sites and obsolete built environments. Her recent awards include, British Journal of Photography International Photography Award: Winner 2016, Catlin Art prize: Finalist 2015, Magnum and Photo London Inaugural Photographer award: nominated 2015. She will share her advice on how to apply for open calls and grants, giving her most recent commissions as an example.

Russell Squires

Russell Squires is another of our guests, who is a multi-faceted artist, primarily using photography within a fine art and conceptual based context. His current practice is concerned with the very construct and formation of photography and its dissemination into popular culture. He is going to speak about the subject of Artist Educators, how teaching influenced his work, and can develop one as an artist.

Carole Evans

And our fourth guest artists is Carole Evansshe is one of the founders of Portrait Salon. As well as she worked for seven years as Gallery Coordinator at Photofusion in Brixton, where she met many influential photographers and honed her skills in organising events and curating. She is Senior Lecturer in Contextual Studies at Ravensbourne, sessional tutor on BA Photography at UCA Farnham, and works independently as a photographer and curator.

Philip Serfaty

Our third speaker is Philip Serfaty, a curator and director of the new exhibition space Black Tower Projects, in South London. He holds an MA in Curation from Goldsmiths University and has worked with a number of galleries as well as a wide range of artists. We have invited him to give our audience an insight into the world of curation, how to approach gallery spaces and gain exposure from exhibitions.
