LOOK Photo Biennial is a photography festival delivered by Open Eye Gallery. Taking place in sites across the North West, LOOK’s programme operates as a cultural exchange both locally and internationally.

LOOK 22 will take place across various sites including: RHS Gardens Bridgewater (Manchester), New Adelphi Gallery (University of Salford) and World of Glass (St Helens). LOOK will also exist in public spaces across the North West, such as charity shops across Chester and green spaces across the Liverpool City Region, highlighting climate prescient topics like textile recycling and environmental protection.

The LOOK Photo Biennial 2022 theme is ‘Climate’ building on from the six week long exploratory Climate Lab which took place between January and March 2022. Open Eye Gallery invited researchers, artists, academics and visionaries to take over the gallery and use it as a lab space, showing work in progress and talking through ideas to tackle climate change. LOOK Photo Biennial 2022: Climate builds upon the research and discovery reported during the Climate Lab, and showcases how photography and visual art can communicate the climate emergency in accessible ways, transcending languages, borders and cultures.

The full list of LOOK Photo Biennial 2022: Climate artists and partners will be released in June.
