'Desk Job' by Louis Quail is a humorous, insightful series capturing the struggle of personal expression versus global machinations and homogenisation.
16 May - 23 August 2015 Open 1
Open Eye Gallery, with the support of the Brian Mercer Charitable Trust, is proud to present a series of three annual exhibitions to show the most compelling work received through our on-going call for Exhibition Submissions.
For the first exhibition in the series, titled 'Open 1', Open Eye Gallery’s curatorial team have selected six artists whose work is thematically grouped around ideas of social portraiture. The show brings together photography that narrates individual stories and yet addresses issues of collective relevance and general public interest. Each series on display has a personal dimension (often more introvert, suffered and lyrical) and a public-facing one (socially and politically engaged and more militant). Such tension is differently resolved in the work of each selected artist/photographer.
Featured artists: Billy Macrae, Deborah Kelly, Helen Marshall, Louis Quail, Richard Ross, Sonal Kantaria
