Photography Festival is back in the city

Website-1_0The Format International Photography Festival will be taking place in Derby from March 13-April 12.

FORMAT15: EVIDENCE will present over 200 artists across multiple venues in the city.

There will also be a host of events and professional practice activities, all engaging with the festival’s theme of evidence.

Fairy tales and crime scenes, performances and war stories will combine to offer a diverse interpretation of why the search for evidence is central to our understanding of the world.

The main exhibition at QUAD, Beyond Evidence – An Incomplete Narrative of Photographic Truths – takes it cue from the legendary 1977 work Evidence by Larry Sultan and Mike Mandel, and brings it up to date with works from several artists who explore the relationship between image and knowledge.

Details of the full festival programme will be in the March edition of artsbeat which is out at the end of February.
