A Friday evening meeting, UNDERWAY brings together artists and curators for a series of informal discussions, performances and screenings of new and in‐progress work, organized by Corinne Silva. UNDERWAY is a monthly event.
The second in the UNDERWAY series, members from the London Alternative Photography Collective will present a series of recent projects, exhibitions and collaborations including a world record cyanotype (The Wellcome Trust), wet collodion workshops (National Gallery and Victoria and Albert Museum), London Pinhole Festival, and most recently Unstable (Format International Photography Festival). and their forthcoming symposium Shadows, part of the Moose on the Loose Biennale of Research.
Established by artist Melanie King, their projects include monthly artist talks at Doomed Gallery (programmed by Melanie King), a world record cyanotype in association with The Wellcome Trust, (Constanza Isaza Martinez, Melanie King) mobile wet plate darkrooms (Douglas Nicolson, Almudena Romero), wet collodion workshops for curators at the National Gallery and Victoria and Albert Museum (Almudena Romero), London Pinhole Festival (Mike Crawford, Melanie King, Ky Lewis) and an exhibition of experiments with expired photographic paper (Mike Crawford).
The London Alternative Photography Collective will reflect on their collaboration, and discuss past and current projects including Unstable, their recent exhibition of heat sensitive and photographic works which are unfixed, at Format International Photography Festival, 2015 . Visitors to the exhibition had the opportunity to interact with the exhibited work, so that it changed gradually during the course of the exhibition. Unstable challenges the concept of the photograph as “evidence” or “proof” in a playful and interactive way. Artists Nettie Edwards, Anthony Carr and Ky Lewis will discuss their experience of taking part in this exhibition.
