An inspiring curation of local and national photographic work is on show at Broadway Gallery until 1 December 2019:
One Day This Glass Will Break
Southbank Centre’s Hayward Gallery Touring presents One Day This Glass Will Break, an exhibition of 20 large-scale photogravures by Cornelia Parker from three experimental series: Fox Talbot’s Articles of Glass (2017); One Day This Glass Will Break (2015) and Thirty Pieces of Silver (exposed) (2015). These three series, which are brought together for the first time in this exhibition, explore the artist’s fascination with the physical properties of objects, materials and their histories.
Photo Letchworth is a new photography competition and exhibition at Broadway Gallery, showcasing the photographic talents of residents from Letchworth and the surrounding area. The 21 works currently on display were selected by a guest panel of judges from over 300 entries that were submitted during Summer. The public are invited to decide which photograph is awarded the 2019 Photo Letchworth prize. Visit the gallery to cast your vote.
Where Land Runs Out
Liz Harrington is a photographic artist based in Letchworth, working primarily with analogue, alternative photographic processes and camera-less techniques. Focusing on transience and the fragility of the natural environment, Where Land Runs Out is part of a wider, ongoing project based on the Suffolk coast at Orford Ness and Shingle Street. This desolate landscape and vast expanse of shingle has at times an almost haunting feel, enhanced by the rumours of mysterious happenings there during WWII.
The Weight of a Tongue
The Broadway Plinth is a new addition at Broadway Gallery; a permanent fixture that will highlight single and small groupings of work by contemporary sculptors. The Weight of a Tongue, from Benjamin Cohen, invites us to investigate the relationship between, and the possibilities of, image-making, ‘the screen’ and display, as well as issues of exchange and temporality in contemporary life.
A Slow Longing Collapse
Artist Sofia Albina Novikoff Unger brings her solo exhibition, A Slow Longing Collapse, to the gallery’s Season of Photography. The exhibition centres around a video installation, which presents the first episode of a planned trilogy that explores the hybridisation of nature and artifice on a global scale.
