Counter-Memory - MA Photography

Hosted at the University of Brighton Gallery on Grand Parade, the annual exhibition will showcase 13 international visual artists from many different countries including China, Latvia, Hungary, Cyprus, Spain and the UK. Work on show examines a wide range of concerns, styles and formats. Specific practices explore and challenge areas of interest such as notions of contemporary masculinity, the European refugee crisis, the trauma of the 2011 Japanese tsunami and the elusive, eerie otherness of the primal elements of everyday life.
Presented under the title “Counter-Memory”, a concept first coined by Michel Foucault, the work of 2016’s graduating MA Photography class explores uncertain and ambiguous spaces of representation, giving voice to more marginal narratives that have been suppressed or simply lost from view. Counter-Memory is an opportunity to engage with work at the forefront of contemporary photographic practise.
Private View: Friday 16 September 5.30pm – 9.00pm
Exhibition continues: 17–23 September 2016
Gallery Hours: 10.00am-5.00pm, closed on Sunday
