I’m just getting the Rhubarb Rhubarb stuff straight in my head. The actual Rhubarb Festival Of The Image runs from July 26th – 29th at Curzon St Station and I wrote about it here. What I didn’t click with is that the Light Sale runs in the same venue for five days before the festival and includes work from:
Luminous: 12 fine art photographers from the West Midlands – premiered last year at Les Rencontres D’Arles. (article)
Otherlands – Creative travellers comment on China, Japan, Norway, Iceland, the East/West European border, Ahmedabad, Iran, fake holiday destinations….
Platform – Whistle stop tour of work by emerging and established artists from the region.
xposed – Final year show by photography students from Hereford College of Art and Design.
The Rhubarb Farm – Images from online sales site.
The White Tent – Portrait of Birmingham -pictures from Barry Lewis’s epic adventure to capture the spirit of the city.
For sale – Hugely popular project siting fine art images on for sale boards to comment on the lack of space for showcasing photography in the city.
The launch in on Friday 20th at 6pm. Here’s the invite (PDF) – don’t forget to RSVP. After that it runs from 21st – 26th July, 11am – 7pm.
