Photo50

This year’s edition of Photo50, titled Resolution Is Not the Point, is curated by Hemera Collective, the first collective to curate London Art Fair’s annual exhibition of photography.

The exhibition reflects the concerns with which Hemera operates, as a collaborative and evolving entity with different areas of expertise, who come together through a shared inquiry of photography and lens-based media. As practitioners continue to push the conceptual and technical boundaries of the many forms of photography and image-making; they are drawn to other specialisms and ways of working in order to communicate personal, social, and political ideas. From collaboratively produced research projects to artists that draw on the circulation of images, knowledge, and capital; Photo50 2018 examines vital directions in contemporary photographic practice.

Dialogues

Dialogues is a guest-curated section of Art Projects intended to encourage and foster relationships on a global scale. This year’s exhibition is curated by Misal Adnan Yildiz and consists of five pairs of UK-based and international galleries presenting selected works by women artists, with a high percentage of Non-European participants which includes indigenous practices from Maori, Kurdish, Asian, and African origins.

Screening Room

Art Projects Screening Room for London Art Fair 2018 titled Quick, Quick, Quick, will be curated by Pryle Behrman. This exhibition may appear to pander to the pace of contemporary living, as it brings together a selection of animated GIFs, films and videos that all, individually, are quite brief. However, on close inspection, the artworks on display are using brevity to, perhaps counter-intuitively, ask the viewer to give more time and look for longer.
