Molly Landreth - Embodiment: A Portrait of Queer Life in Brighton. Zoe Strauss - Brighton: 05/08/10 — 11/08/10

About

New photographic work by Molly Landreth and Zoe Strauss. For the exhibition, Queer Brighton, both photographers visited Brighton & Hove during Brighton Pride week in early August 2010, to document the visitors, residents and LGBTQ communities of the city. These commissions are part of Brighton Photo Biennial: New Documents curated by Martin Parr (02 October — 14 November 2010) showing at key public venues in the city. American photographer, Molly Landreth, investigates the intersection of Queer culture and national identity through snapshots as well as intimate formal portraits. ‘Embodiment: A Portrait of Queer Life in Brighton' is an invitation to take a closer look at the lives and identities of LGBTQ individuals who represent themselves in iconic locations around Brighton & Hove during Pride week. For her first commission in the UK, entitled ‘Brighton: 05/08/10 — 11/08/10', Zoe Strauss produced a series of images that reflect upon the diverse and culturally eclectic constituencies of the city. She describes her approach to the commission, as ‘an American lesbian' visiting Brighton & Hove during Pride week and producing images of the city as a whole. ----- Artist talk: 03 October 2010, 2.30pm — Talking about Queer pictures: Molly Landreth in conversation with Dr Catherine Harper (Head of School Architecture and Design, University of Brighton) about the making of images for Queer Brighton. £5 — to book please go to: http://www.lighthouse.org.uk/whatson/bpbtalk.htm
