A non-definitive survey
29th October 2021- 15th January 2022
About the Exhibition
To celebrate the opening of The Ledward Centre - Brighton's LGBTQAI+ new safe space, The Socially Engaged Art Salon (SEAS) is staging a large group exhibition of lens-based artists and photographers with works centred on social and political themes and photography projects created through participatory and collaborative practices. The works include an examination of queer identities, documentation of pride and other LGBTQ+ events, exploration of “queer spaces”, participatory work with marginalised communities, narrative-based projects and works that defy definitions.
The exhibition will include works submitted in open calls and a selection of some of the works exhibited in SEAS’s online exhibitions in the past two years. The exhibition will include established and early-career photographers as well as historical work from archives in the US and Europe. All the works will be shown on digital screens and at night will be projected onto The Ledward Centre’s window.
The exhibition will be launched on October 29th as part of the Brighton Digital Festival and will continue until January 15th 2022.
There will also be an artist talk on 6th November (tickets available here).
The exhibition is supported by Art Council England and Sussex Communities Trust.
