ARTIST TALKS – BRIGHTON PHOTO BIENNIAL
In the run up to the Brighton Photo Biennial, Photoworks and the University of Brighton will be holding three discussions “by artists, writers and curators working with contemporary photography. The current series focuses on the nature and use of objects within the representational space of the photographic image”.

If you are in, or near Brighton, I highly recommend getting to Ori Gersht‘s talk which kicks off the series. He’s been featured in HotShoe magazine with Liquidation and The Clearing and a review of his current show Places That Were Not (currently showing at the Mummery + Schnelle gallery in London) is featured in the next issue of the magazine, due out first week in February. His film Evaders was previewed in an earlier post. Gersht will be in conversation with David Chandler (writer, curator and Director of Photoworks) tonight  27 January.

This will be followed by Richard Wentworth on 10 February and David Spero on 10 March.

The talks start at 6pm and are open to all. Book online. £5 per talk, £2.50 concessions. All three talks for £12/£6 concession.
