Join MA Curating student Jocelyn Gale for an in-depth look at the Ten.8 magazines held at the Foundation, with special guest speaker Darryl Georgiou. Jocelyn has been working closely with the MPF collection for the past year and Darryl Georgiou is an artist and educator, and currently Professor of Media Arts at various UK and overseas universities. The Foundation is home to the complete set of Ten.8 magazines.
Ten.8 was a counter-cultural publication founded in 1979 and published quarterly up until 1992. It looked at the relationship between photography, knowledge, culture and power. Darryl has undertaken several important roles for Ten.8 including Picture Editor, exhibitions manager of Ten.8 Touring as well as Director of Ten.8 Ltd.
Jocelyn and Darryl will start the event with an informal talk about the history and future of Ten.8 magazine, followed by a look at material from the MPF library focusing on Ten.8. This will be followed by a group discussion as Jocelyn and Darryl address important questions around Ten.8.
The event includes a rare chance to see unpublished and unseen Ten.8 magazine archive material being brought to the Foundation for the day by Darryl Georgiou, especially for this session.
Jocelyn is undertaking a year long work placement at MPF as a part of her MA Curating degree at University of the West of England (UWE).
