Second year Photography student Rory Sheridan takes us through his top must-see cultural events for the month.
In a turbulent time in our history, these three exhibitions below (which you have lots of time to go to see as they all finish at the end of Summer!) address very pressing issues in our society currently. These include: digital imagery & appropriation, conflict, peace and a rise in futuristic technology. There’s lots of interesting things to take in at these three, very different, exhibitions!
Ashley Bickerton: Ornamental Hysteria
21 April 2017 – 20 August 2017
Newport Street Gallery
London, SE11 6AJ
People Power: Fighting for Peace
March 2017- 28 August 2017
Imperial War Museum London
London SE1 6HZ
Guidance for audience: There is no age restriction in the exhibition that I am aware of. Any photography within the exhibition would have to be for personal use only – “if your audience would like to use any photos for commercial use, we can arrange this through our commercial filming department on firstname.lastname@example.org, which I believe may offer student rates.”
Into the Unknown A Journey Through Science Fiction
3 June 2017 – 1 September 2017
Guidance for audience: “[This] is an exhibition for visitors of all ages, but there are some video-games in the foyers that are rated for either 12 or 16. Photography is allowed in the exhibition, however there are strict restrictions about which particular exhibits can be photographed.”
