Digital Territories: Photography in the Online Environment at Barbican

22 Mar

Friday 24th March 2017

7pm

£10

Magnum photographer and publisher of Burn Magazine David Alan Harvey, will be in conversation with Magnum’s Digital Director Anne Bourgeois-Vignon and Rory Blain, Director of Sedition, to discuss the online space as a home for photography, for making, sharing, exhibiting, saving, following the launch of Magnum’s new digital publishing platform last July.

The speakers will tackle pertinent questions relating the implications of photography ‘living’ online; and what this means for photographers, publishers of, and consumers of photography. How can practitioners harness online communities to develop their practice and grow their audience? Where do we save and share our visual lives, and what does this mean for our visual literacy and memory?

The talk at the Barbican will be chaired by Aaron Schuman (curator, photographer and writer)

Tate Modern’s New Building

28 Jun

On 17 June 2016 Tate Modern opened its new building, displaying a great variety of artworks and artists from around the world, presenting an increasingly international view of modern and contemporary art.

The new building is ten-storeys high! Its height responds to the chimney of the existing Tate Modern building which was originally designed as a power station by Giles Gilbert Scott in the 1950s. Its twisting, pyramid-like shape will be a memorable addition to London’s skyline and will offer 60% more space for visitors to explore.

From The Tanks on Level 0 you can go all the way up to Level 10 and enjoy the spectacular new roof terrace with 360-degree views of the river Thames, St Paul’s Cathedral and the dramatic London skyline!
