A collaboration between Arnolfini, Martin Parr Foundation and St Pauls Carnival, made possible with the support of Wex Photo Video and Epson.
A group of photographers led by Matt Stuart, Lua Ribeira and Martin Parr will be on the streets of Bristol photographing St Pauls Carnival on Saturday 06 July. The following week an exhibition of their work will open at Arnolfini. The photographs will be processed and printed in a pop-up studio in the Arnolfini galleries, provided by Wex Photo Video and Epson.
The pop up studio will be open to the public. Visitors will have the opportunity to spot themselves in the images, as well as see the process of turning digital files into photographs and an installed exhibition. Throughout the course of the week the exhibition will evolve each day, before the final selection and installation is unveiled at the opening party on Friday 12 July, just 6 days after Carnival. The opening party will feature live music, costumes and dancing, promising to take us back to Carnival.
Have your photography exhibited as a part of Carnival Pop Up! Carnival goers have the chance to be part of the show by tagging images taken during St Pauls Carnival celebrations with #CarnivalPopUp19 on Instagram.

A newsprint featuring work from the show will be produced by Wex Photo Video, and free copies will be available at the exhibition.
