China Conversation

An exhibition on the outside walls of the gallery, curated by Sian Bonnell.

 

Here, we present fresh still and moving imagery from young photographers studying at four selected universities in China:  Nanjing University of the Arts, Dalian Medical University, Zheijiang Fashion Institute Ningbo and Wuhan Institute of Design.

Running through the work is a sense of enquiry into how we can approach the camera in different ways. The exhibition offers an overview of the concerns and interests of these new practitioners, giving a glimpse into different ways of seeing: from the commercial to the conceptual.

One question that many of the young photographers seem to be responding to is what exactly constitutes photography in the 21st century? The rise of smartphones and the ease of sharing images online has changed how we understand the nature of still and moving imagery.

To navigate this, photographers must continually question how pictures are consumed and shared today. It is an ongoing conversation,and here we show some of the voices within it.

Since 2014 I have been invited to exhibit new photographic work selected from sixteen UK universities for Pingyao International Photography Festival (PIP) in China. PIP is the oldest and largest photography festival of its kind and is held every year in September. Although the festival is fairly traditional in concept, its reach within China is enormous and I have been surprised and delighted each year by the responses provoked by our exhibitions.

It has been a pleasure to build strong relationships and trust with colleagues from Chinese Universities and I am so happy that we are able to showcase this tiny selection of emerging work from China here. It is fascinating to see versions of the same debates and issues that motivate UK students featuring in the work here, intertwined with approaches that are distinct to the culture of China: chinese painting for example, or the look and style of contemporary artists such as the late Ren Hang.

对话中国

我们在此向您呈现,由就读于四所一流中国大学的年轻摄影师们所带来的新作品.

通过对于作品的浏览会让人产生思考,我们如何以不同的方式去接触摄影. 此次展览旨在提供一个概述,有关于新从业者们的忧虑与利益,以及从不同视角看待由商业性至概念性的短暂体验.

有一个是年轻摄影师们一直以来都在面对的问题 —— 究竟是什么构成了21世纪的摄影?智能手机的崛起以及在线共享照片的方便快捷影响了人们对于定格画面与移动影像的本质理解

为了理解现状, 摄影师们必须不断探究在现今照片是如何被人使用以及共享的. 这是一场持续进行的对话, 在此我们向您呈现其中的部分见解.
