University of Westminster launches 'Voice of the Grain' exhibition
The University of Westminster will open its MA Photographic Studies 2012 postgraduate exhibition on Wednesday 5 September until Sunday 9 September at the Ambika P3 venue in London.
Voice of the Grain will present what it says to be the very best of emerging contemporary photography from the long established and highly reputable MA Photographic Studies programme.
Voice of the Grain showcases 23 photographic projects of imagination and technical skill. The work explores a range of practices, from the philosophical and autobiographical to the political and analytical. Exhibited works incorporate photography, video and installation in a powerful diversity of visual and conceptual display.
Borrowing from the French literary critic and theorist, Roland Barthes, the exhibition's title Voice of the Grain takes its name from his investigation into: "the very precise space of the encounter between a language and a voice" (Roland Barthes, Image-Music-Text, 1977). This theme proposes explorations in the space of the encounter between visual language and its voice, raising questions as to how the silent and inert image acquires its ‘voice’.
A limited edition catalogue will be published to support the exhibition detailing artists' work and including contributions by the MA Photographic Studies course leader David Bate, who is a writer and photo artist, Karen McQuaid, curator and Marco Bohr, photographer and critic.
A panel discussion titled ‘Voice of the Grain’ on the muteness of photographs will take place on Friday 7 September at 4pm. Chaired by David Bate, MA Photographic Studies course leader, panellists include: Marco Bohr, lecturer in Visual Communication at Loughborough University, Sophy Rickett, artist and senior lecturer in Photography, London College of Communication, Daniel Rubinstein, writer and programme leader for photography at London South Bank University, and Eti Wade, photographic artist and head of the MA Photography at Thames Valley University.
