LOOK Photo Biennial 2019 Launch Afterparty / RedEye 20th Anniversary
All welcome for the LOOK Photo Biennial 2019 launch afterparty!
We’ll be opening exhibitions across the city throughout the night, and rounding it off with a free party at Constellations. It’s the 20th anniversary of Redeye, the Photography Network, so Open Eye Gallery and Redeye are teaming up to put on a party together. Head to Open Eye Gallery from 6PM to launch a major new exhibition with us beforehand — all welcome.
This isn’t just one for artists and photographers — it’s open to everyone. We’ve got DJs (who may be familiar to the photography crowd), a live band, and pop-up installations.
The full tour for the opening of LOOK Photo Biennial is:
5.00pm – St George’s Hall (exhibition: Peer to Peer I)
6.00pm – Open Eye Gallery (exhibition: Peer to Peer II & Fast Forward Women)
7.45pm – The Gallery Liverpool (exhibition: JUMP!)
8:00pm – Doors open for the Redeye 20th anniversary party & LOOK Photo Biennial afterparty at Constellations, with speeches at 8:30pm
Focusing on exchange with China, LOOK Photo Biennial 2019 uses the evolving language of photography to unlock international dialogue. LOOK sets out to reflect on shifting global identities, worldwide environmental issues and how we can use images to communicate effectively: across borders, technologies and cultures. Following Chapter One: TRANSPLANT, the second and much more scaled-up chapter is based around two strands: TRANSLATE and TRANSITION.
