In Place of Architecture
- 6 November — 11 December 2015 *on now
So much of our experience of architecture is not the result of a first-hand encounter, but is the consequence of a photographic image. Photography does not merely facilitate our experience of architecture, it arguably constructs that experience – much of what we see has been decided by the photographer.
In Place of Architecture brings together a group of contemporary artists to explore the role that photography and moving image play in our interpretation, perception and understanding of the architectural environment. Artists include:
» Peter Ainsworth » Michele Allen » Emily Andersen » Peter Bobby » Tim Daly » Charlotte Fox » Fergus Heron » Esther Johnson » Andy Lock » Fiona Maclaren » Guy Moreton » Martin Newth » Emily Richardson
A programme of events and activities has been curated to compliment the themes highlighted by the exhibition.

Over the course of one month artists are invited to spend a period of time in the Gallery creating lines, marks and tones that explore and respond to the space through a variety of drawing processes.
The work will celebrate the expanded field of contemporary drawing to include: works on paper, performance, moving image, installation, projections and three-dimensional drawings.
Visitors are encouraged to witness and engage with the exhibition as it continuously unfolds and takes form. Visitors are encouraged to engage with the exhibition and witness as it continuously unfolds and takes form.
