A Youth Take Over Event
What happens when young people take over the gallery? We’re looking forward to finding out. Come along, see for yourself and get involved.
We’ve heard rumours of free ice cream, popcorn, music plus youth-led activities exploring notions of Cultural Identity and territory. What are our similarities and our differences? What unifies or divides us as a group?
The State of Control collective are a group of young people from the Photoworks Photography club. They have been working with Lindsey Smith and a number of other artists including Lynn Weddle and Ewen Spencer, exploring notions of individual and collective identity. Resulting works show at Jubilee Library until 30 October in the Brighton Photo Biennial exhibition State of Control.
Alongside their exhibition, the group are also creating a new moving image piece, which will be screened at Fabrica during Cinecity 2016 in November.
A Photoworks and Fabrica co-commission, co-financed by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
