Strange Bedfellows 1 & 2 - off limits

Alissa Alberne, Chris Bucher, Chan-Hyo Bae, John Ferguson, Darlaine Honey, Lea Golda Holterman, Lydia Goldblatt, Sue Golden, Karen Kapoor, George Kavanagh, David Knight, Ginger Lui, Georgina McNamara, Sukey Parnell, Judah Passow, Russ Quackenbush, Claudio Rasano, Alessandro Saponi, Ilya Van Marle, Sophia Wallace plus others

In 'Strange Bedfellows' 1 & 2 the tapestry of life is exposed in all its fragmented complexities. Here the quotidian mixes with the topical, the enigmatic with the provocative. This conceptual, eclectic mix of international photographers’ images, chosen by an artist, presents unions exploring the contrasts and disparities, the illusions and realities of the Zeitgeist. It forms a striking exhibition, in two parts, that reveals the poignant, the paradoxical and the absurd.

Images have been selected from the fine art, commercial and established photographers’ collections at the London Photographic Association and Gallery 1839.

Sunara Begum

Ara is a new exhibition by the contemporary visual artist and filmmaker Sunara Begum that explores the world of a mythical figure and icon called Ara. The exhibition includes photography, film and installation, which opens a dialogue between the old world and the new.

Ara is a symbolic character who lives between worlds and embodies the journey of displacement from homeland to the diasporic experience. She is an illusive figure who moves through time and space with a shadowy presence of a bygone era. Reflecting on her beginnings through dreams and memories, Ara travels the path that lies beyond tradition.

Guantanamo: If the Light Goes Out/ Letters to Omar

Edmund Clark

Edmund Clark is best known for his powerful, thoughtful and beautiful images exploring the consequences of control and incarceration. "Guantanamo: If the light goes out" illustrates three experiences of home: the naval base at Guantanamo, the complex of camps where the detainees have been held, and the homes where former detainees now find themselves trying to rebuild their lives. "Letters to Omar" is a selection of cards and letters sent to Brighton resident Omar Deghayes during his five years of captivity. Together, these two projects create a sense of the hardship and isolation these innocent men endured.
