Brighton Photo Biennial is an ambitious, bold and innovative festival of international photography. It aims to offer a challenging and stimulating event to wide and varied audiences. The seventh edition will take place in Brighton throughout October 2016. Previous editions have been curated by Jeremy Millar (2003), Gilane Tawadros (2006), Julian Stallabrass (Memory of Fire, 2008), Martin Parr (New Documents, 2010). Since 2012 Brighton Photo Biennial has been curated and produced by Photoworks.
‘As much about photography’s past as where it is going, and the balance is perfectly pitched.’
‘A single visit won't seem like enough time to take it all in.’
‘The premise for the Biennial was pushed to its fullest, and as a result it succeeded in delivering a fascinating and challenging experience.’
Super Massive Black Hole
For the sixth Brighton Photo Biennial (BPB14), we worked in close partnership with a host of regional, national and international collaborators to develop a series of new projects based around the theme of Communities, Collectives & Collaboration. The 2014 festival embraced novel perspectives and fresh approaches to generate new work plus new presentations of archive material.
The fifth Brighton Photo Biennial (BPB12) explored how space is constructed, controlled and contested, how photography is implicated in these processes, and the tensions and possibilities involved in this dialogue.
