On now: Ways of Looking Festival

Fri, 30th Sep, 2011

Ways of Looking: A New Festival of Photography in Bradford runs throughout October 2011 and opens with a special launch weekend Friday 30 September to Sunday 2 October 2011.

Exploring the theme EVIDENCE, the festival includes premières of newly commissioned works by internationally renowned Magnum photographer Donovan Wylie, Turner Prize winning artists Jeremy Deller and Douglas Gordon.

The festival addresses, overturns, and playfully interacts with photography’s assumed status as evidence  in a range of arenas including history, politics, science, law, and conflict. Ways of Looking offers multiple curatorial approaches to the theme, ranging from museum institutions to grass-roots collectives. Many of the works have been specially commissioned for the festival and are being shown for the first time in Bradford.

Featured artists and collectives include: Diane Bielik, Jeremy Deller, Alan Dunn, Invisible Flock, Simon Ford, Douglas Gordon, Bradford Grid, Shanaz Gulzar, Colin Lloyd, Daniel Meadows, Red Saunders, and Donovan Wylie.

Ways of Looking is organised by Impressions Gallery, National Media Museum, and The Culture Company, with partners Bradford Grid, Bradford Museums and Galleries, Fabric, Gallery II University of Bradford, and Leeds Met Gallery and Studio Theatre. The festival is funded by Arts Council England through the National Lottery Fund and supported by Bradford Metropolitan District Council.
