Event details

So much of our experience of architecture is not the result of a first-hand encounter, but is the consequence of a photographic image. Photography does not merely facilitate our experience of architecture, it arguably constructs that experience – much of what we see has been decided by the photographer.

In Place of Architecture brings together a group of contemporary artists to explore the role that photography and moving image play in our interpretation, perception and understanding of the architectural environment.

Artists include:

Peter Ainsworth, Michele Allen, Emily Andersen, Peter Bobby, Tim Daly, Charlotte Fox, Fergus Heron, Esther Johnson, Andy Lock, Fiona Maclaren, Guy Moreton, Martin Newth and Emily Richardson.
