Join Martin Parr Foundation and The Royal Photographic Society at Paintworks Photohub, Bristol, for two exhibition launches, including a new outdoor space.
Martin Parr Foundation will hold an exhibition party to mark the opening of ‘Where Have All The Flowers Gone’. This new show presents naked portraits by artist and photographer Tom Hunter. In the summers of 2017 and 2019, Tom set up a makeshift photobooth at Glastonbury Festival. In the spirit of the first Summer of Love in the late 1960s, Tom asked the festival goers to reimagine the liberation of that era and embrace the freedom of nudity.
Tom will give a short presentation in the MPF gallery showcasing new portraits made at Glastonbury Festival 2022, which took place last weekend.
Martin Parr also photographed the festival and will share his new images taken at Glastonbury Festival on the evening.
MPF and RPS will launch a brand new joint outdoor exhibition space, located between the MPF and RPS buildings. This will open with This Is Not a Moment, a show by Bristol based photographer Khali Ackford. Khali’s work revolves around his heritage, identity and community and this new exhibition captures the journey of the Black Lives Matter movement.
The RPS gallery will open late with their current show, International Photography Exhibition 163.
The evening is sponsored by local Bristol brewery Lost and Grounded, and will have street food available with Bristol Eats.
