Against Nature

Photo50 is a guest-curated exhibition of contemporary photography featuring fifty works. It is located within London Art Fair on Gallery Level 2 and provides a critical showcase of some of the most interesting and distinctive elements of current photographic practice.

For the next edition of the Fair we welcome Sheyi Bankale as curator, with an exhibition entitled 'Against Nature'.

‘Against Nature’ is positioned more as a series of questions than answers, that consider what it is to look at and display a photograph and how a photograph can become elevated to the status of an object, act or intervention.

In homage as the exhibition title, the novel ‘Against Nature’ by JK Huysman, occupies an appropriated role to reflect upon a variety of construction and installation that challenge our assumed presumptions of the photographic representation and explore the possibilities of how we relate to renewed storytelling.

These frameworks will measure up as the touchstone of the exhibition, and the idea that photography has the ability to determine our nature of the gaze, blurring the boundary between the tangible object and the photographic aesthetic plain.

The works will generate an exhibition entrenched in dynamic and compelling storytelling.

Further information will be announced in October. Subscribe for updates to be alerted first.

Photography Focus Day

An associated programme of events will run in parallel with the exhibition including artist talks, panel discussions and guided tours.

Photography Focus Day will take place at London Art Fair on Wednesday 21 January, with talks and tours on this day examining contemporary photographic practice.
