LJMU Art & Design Academy: BLACKOUT (group show)

18 May – 21 June 2013

Open for Light Night 17 May 10.00 – 20.00 (This exhibition will stay open later than publicised)

Part of LOOK/13 Photography Festival

BLACKOUT pulls into focus the space between viewer and subject. It asks what happens in the encounter between the subjectivity of the viewer and the appearance of the subject in the (photographic) image. Each work introduces a certain agitation to the act of looking; together, they question the image in the broader sense of how it is constituted – in, through or between work and viewer. What is at stake in perceiving the other, and what is the role of the image through which he or she comes to exist for us?Curated by Imogen Stidworthy and Patrick Henry
With thanks to Willem Oorebeek for his title, BLACKOUT
