Memory and Materiality

Goldsmiths, Kingston and Falmouth Universities students and graduates

03 Nov 2016 to 08 Nov 2016


Through interactions and dialogue, materiality can suggest possible pasts and hypothetical futures for the urban. The photographic representation of the material realm and its physicality can be seen as an effective tool in suggesting a sense of memory. The exhibition Memory and Materiality will collectively work to answer the question, "how can photography represent and translate the multiplicity of layers and memories that urban materialities contain?" by showing a variety of projects selected from Goldsmiths, Kingston and Falmouth University students and graduates.


About the Artists:

Kingston Photography Department offers an opportunity for students to develop major bodies of practical work that engage with the expanded boundaries of photography. It is concerned with a broad range of photographic practices and technologies while exploring debates around the politics of representation and our role as image makers.

Falmouth University’s Institute of Photography is an internationally recognised centre for excellence in the subject area. The reputation of BA Photography at Falmouth is acknowledged through the high achievements of its alumni who have established profiles within a diverse set of professional contexts.   

The international MA Photography and Urban Cultures, based at Goldsmiths, University of London attracts a wide range of students coming from diverse social science, media and visual arts backgrounds. The course reflects the department's research interests in urban sociology and draws on cutting edge visual practices concerned with the representation and evocation of historic and contemporary urban life.
