Streetopolis is an exhibition of contemporary fine art, urban and documentary photographers responding to the theme of ‘streets of the world’. The photographers are part of the Association of Urban Photographers, an international collective focusing on the nature of urban and city spaces. The artists are all urbanists whose work focuses on aspects of urban life, including landscape, architecture, portraiture, objects and the street.
The aim of this exhibition is to expand on notions of what constitutes contemporary street photography and to offer an alternative range of practices that link street cultures back to the wider context of urban life. In doing so, the artists’ practices suggest an alternative set of visual imaginations from those associated with traditional documentary narratives, from personal perspectives of streets that have meaning to them within the context of the cities they inhabit or have visited.
Exhibiting artists include:
David Kendall, Diego Ferrari, Isidro Ramirez, Kyler Zeleny, Lene Hald, Michael Frank, Paul Halliday, Peter Coles, Rachel Sarah Jones, Rebecca Locke, Santiago Escobar-Jaramillo, Yanina Shevchenko
Exhibit opens September 10 and runs through October 8, available for viewing 8:00 am to 9:00 pm daily.
Opening reception: September 10, Thursday, 6:00 - 9:00 pm. Details on the Facebook event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/596494963823092/
