Private View: Thursday 4 October, from 6.30pm
Third Effect will present the work of the photographic collective f-twentytwo, consisting of 18 artists from more than ten countries including Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Japan, Russia, Singapore and Ireland. The exhibition will showcase theoretical and personal engagements with various aspects of the city in its everyday life, spaces, detours and encounters.
Borrowing from Wilson Hicks’ concept of juxtaposing two images to evoke secondary meanings outside of the initial images, Third Effect aims to bring together multiple inter-disciplinary perspectives and visual approaches on the urban to generate thought-provoking insights in an exciting exhibition space. Moreover, the exhibition will be positioned as the opening event for the Urban Encounters Festival 2012 in collaboration with Tate Britain, the Centre for Urban and Community Research (CUCR) and other international partners.
In conjunction with the festival, f-twentytwo will host an artists’ talk on 10 October, introducing photographic practice as a visual method of exploring and navigating the city. This talk comprises a series of presentations by the exhibiting photographers.
