UCLan: Brilliant City

30 October - 16 November 2019

LOCATION: PR1 GALLERY, PRESTON (VICTORIA BUILDING, UCLAN)

中文

 

PROGRAMME STRAND: TRANSITION

 

Brilliant City showcases work by three contemporary photographers from mainland China; Haohan Zheng, Cuilixin, and Ratsberry. The result of a two-year commission, the exhibition highlights a diverse range of responses from contemporary photographic practitioners to the ever-expanding urban world around them. The distinctive bodies of work offer unique insights into the experiences and mutable environments produced by these emerging city spaces at this historic moment of urban transformation. 

The mezzanine floor of the exhibition will also feature work from UCLan’s New China research group, highlighting a diverse array of projects led by the researchers at the University.

Brilliant City is curated by John van Aitken and Adam Mead and is produced in collaboration with Open Eye Gallery, Liverpool for LOOK Photo Biennial 2019. This exhibition is possible owing to the generous funding of the UCLan Confucius Institute.
