TPG posted a calendar event in British Sign Language CalendaruntilHistorian John Wilson leads this British Sign Language tour of the exhibition Under Cover: A Secret History of Cross-Dressers. Please note: This event is for BSL users only. Free, booking essential https://thephotographersgallery.org.uk/whats-on/talk/bsl-tour-of-under-cover Drawn from the extensive personal archives of filmmaker and photography collector Sébastien Lifshitz, this exhibition of amateur 'found' photographs from Europe and the US explores gender non-conformity and cross-dressing. Dating from 1880 onwards, the photos are mostly of unnamed and unknown figures – having been mainly collected from flea markets, garage sales, junk shops and ebay - and as such offer an unauthorised view into the worlds of individuals and groups choosing to defy gender conventions.
TPG posted a calendar event in British Sign Language CalendaruntilAt The Photographers’ Gallery Choreographer and artist Chisato Minamimura leads a British Sign Language tour of the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize 2018 exhibition. Free, booking essential https://thephotographersgallery.org.uk/whats-on/talk/bsl-tour-dbpfp The four artists shortlisted for the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize 2018 are Mathieu Asselin, Rafal Milach, Batia Suter and Luke Willis Thompson. Curated by TPG’s Anna Dannemann, the 2018 shortlist showcases diverse and innovative photographic practices, which recognise and celebrate the many developments within the medium, while also challenging its boundaries. All of the projects share a deep concern with the representation of knowledge through images, where facts can be manipulated and meanings can shift. Presented across the 4th and 5th floors of the Gallery, the exhibition features a searing photographic interrogation of global biotech giant, Monsanto by Mathieu Asselin; an expansive portrayal of the ubiquitous tactics of government control and propaganda from Rafal Milach; an encyclopaedic collection of visual taxonomies that expose the shifting and relative meanings of printed images depending on their context by Batia Suter; and Luke Willis Thompson’s deeply affecting filmic study of grief that reflects the personal stakes of visual representation. Collectively and individually, the four projects drive forward an artistic enquiry into the mechanics of visibility and concealment and interrogate the status and position of the image in contemporary culture.
