People who have saved this event:


CARTER is delighted to present "Truth Trading", the fifth solo exhibition of Brian Reed.


 In "Truth Trading",  Brian Reed has produced a new  body of work  which penetrates deep into the consciousness of the urban environment. A continuation with his engagement of  found and discarded photos which often surround photo booths and explored the anonymous, discarded detritus of  those who have lived, loved and lost.  

 Whilst still engaged with found imagery, In combing the streets, Brian Reed has collected and appropriated streams of  urban  collective consciousness.  These textual outpourings are wilfully and  deliberately, scrawled, painted and etched into the fabric of the city. Provocative sentiment often grammatically wrong, mis-spelt, rude, contemptuous, funny and just plain odd.

 If Fake News is literally the peddling of lies, then "Truth Trading" is tangentially  opposite, the monetarising of facts, news and ideas.
