WeAreW12 is a free photography exhibition and a celebration of Shepherd’s Bush, created by photographer Eileen Perrier and the people of Shepherd’s Bush.

EILEEN INTRODUCES WEAREW12.

I have been taking portraits of strangers with my mobile phone since 2012, initially as a visual diary of my surroundings and now as a spontaneous alternative for taking portraits of strangers in situ. In some respects it reminds me of the point and shoot disposable camera aesthetic and in my early days working as a street photographer.

When I was commissioned by the Bush Theatre for the WeAreW12 exhibition focusing on the Uxbridge Road, Artistic Director Madani Younis explained it is one of the most diverse roads in Europe and I was compelled to capture the essence of this statement.

The inhabitants are eclectic and, on the whole, warm and friendly. Some would give me a snippet of information such as the Mormons on their first day out together; the lady fixing her makeup – an actress currently in Motown The Musical; the expectant mother, due the following Friday, who looked so amazing; the gentleman in the laundrette who shared an in-depth conversation about his family history; the man reciting poetry to his possible love interest, or maybe they were just friends…

These subjects were proud to be part of a community project run by the Bush Theatre. It’s clearly held with great admiration which is why I was able to capture more than 50 people in three days. Most extraordinary really.

To focus this ongoing mobile phone portrait project in Shepherd’s Bush and relating back to the plays commissioned about the area for This Place We Know has enabled me to gain a sense of place both through the eyes of the writers and of the community.

WeAreW12 is displayed on the Bush Theatre building on Uxbridge Road throughout Winter 2016. It is free to view. Share your photos with us of faces and places in Shepherd’s Bush using #WeAreW12.

Perrier was commissioned to take a series of portraits featuring our alumni, students and staff.

The Dickson Poon School of Law is pleased to announce that we will be launching Portraits of a Global Law School, which has recently been installed on Floor -1 and published online. The project brought a group of over 50 alumni, staff and students together to have their portraits taken and to speak about their time at the School.

In celebrating the achievements of our alumni, students and staff from a diverse array of backgrounds, the School is working in support of the university’s Race Equality Charter Mark. Creating a space for an open dialogue between the School and its wider community is central to tackling prejudice and perceived barriers. The project functions, not just as an opportunity for individuals to tell their personal stories, but also for an understanding of the School’s collective identity that goes beyond superficial categories of gender, race and ability.

The event will take place from 6pm on Wednesday 30 September in the Ante Room/Moot Court at Somerset House East Wing. RSVP use this link:

Official launch party invite for Anna Fox event ft. Yousef

We'd really like to draw your attention to this incredible, one off event, which also forms the platform for LOOK/15's official launch.

Celebrating contemporary female photography, Anna Fox has story-boarded the work of several contemporary female photographers in to a (largely) Gothic/Baroque installation that will play out - emotionally and visually - across screens in the TATE foyer. Using this narrative, international DJ Yousef will create a live soundscape.

Taking place at TATE Liverpool (venue 32 on the map), starting at 8pm the event is free and open to all. Our official launch speeches will start at 8.30pm; but don't worry - we'll keep them short! This event sets the scene for the official aftershow party, Disco Glitter Love, at Constellations (tickets available from Skiddle, £6 adv if you didn't tell us you wanted to attend or want additional tickets for friends, venue 7 on the map). Featuring DJ Luxxury and House of Disco, against the back drop of Michael James O'Brien's Girlfriend, Constellations is the next go-to destination.

PORTRAITS FROM AN ISLAND
Curated by Anna Fox and Amit Sheokand
The idea that a photograph can represent who a person actually is has long been debated, and it has been generally accepted that though the image of a face and body represented in a photograph might tell you something about a time and a place, it does not so often tell you much about that individual person.
This new exhibition brings together contemporary photographic portraits by British photographers of British subjects.

Perrier is one of the artists whose work was exhibited as part of the curated show by Anna Fox and Amit Sheokand. Other artists shown were:
ARTISTS
MARTIN PARR

DODGE & BURN
DIVERSITY IN PHOTOGRAPHY HISTORY
The Photographer Interviews of 2014

Interviews are not easy. With hours of collaborative work behind each one, our photographer interviews are produced over the course of a few weeks, sometimes over a year or more. Despite the labor, after each one, I'm always encouraged to keep making new work. This year I was fortunate to interview 13 photographers, check the links below if you missed any. I hope they too leave you refreshed. Let's look forward to 2015!

2 July – 28 September 2013

"...At the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology the story is brought to the present day with three connected contemporary art installations by artist and writer Michael McMillan. The installations show the development of the global black hair industry, the politicising and popularisation of Afros and Dreadlocks, and bring to life the ‘Cottage Salon’ in the Home, The Barber Shop and The Hairdressing Salon. Explaining black hair culture, styling and politics as we know it today, the installations are complemented by a film showing different hands styling hair, and a series of soundbites, which can be heard by sitting under one of the hairdryers."

The World in London was an ambitious photography project for 2012, celebrating London's diversity and photography's unique role in capturing the human form.
Coinciding with the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the project brought together 204 specially commissioned photographic portraits of 204 Londoners, each originating from one of the competing nations.

The World in London celebrated London as a place where individuals from all parts of the world live side by side, each of them contributing to make London the unique city it is. The 204 portraits were exhibited as large-scale posters in Victoria Park in East London, and in Oxford Street opposite Selfridges.

The Photographers’ Gallery commissioned acclaimed and emerging photographers to take portrait shots of the sitters over the last three years. Involving Londoners of all ages and from all walks of life, each portrait is unique in its composition, setting and style, and provides the viewer with an insight into the individual’s story.

Victoria Park Dates: 27 July 2012 – 12 August 2012

Playing the City 3
THE SCHIRN BRINGS ART INTO THE STREET FOR THE THIRD AND LAST TIME
11–25 August 2011

Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt
Römerberg, D-60311 Frankfurt
welcome@schirn.de
T (+49-69) 29 98 82-0
F (+49-69) 29 98 82-240

Playing the City—take three. From August 11 to August 25, 2011, more than fifteen international artists will occupy the inner city of Frankfurt with their actions, performances, and installations. Art will take to the street again. Playing the City 3 will focus on public space as a venue for artistic activities involving the city and its inhabitants in a variety of ways again. Each day will see new participatory projects by such artists as Tania Bruguera, Minerva Cuevas, Jacob Dahlgren, Tim Etchells, Christian Jankowski, San Keller, Kommando Agnes Richter, Levent Kunt, Eileen Perrier, Il-Chin Atem Choi, Sans façon, and Upper Bleistein. Political manifestations, demonstrations, or markets and stands specially organized by artists will help carry on the discussion on the collective, free and designable space, its limits, and not least its inhabitants' involvement.

The works presented in the context of the project Playing the City 3 show a wide range of what art in public space can be today. The performance Demonstration, 16th of August 2011, Frankfurt by the Swedish artist Jacob Dahlgren will change our traditional understanding and image of manifestations. Instead of political banners and appeals, the participants will confront us with abstract works they have painted in the vein of Olle Bærtling (1911–1981), a representative of Swedish Modernism. The resultant "tableau vivant" will surprise passersby and perhaps motivate them to join in. The performance and installation artist Tania Bruguera will bring her long-time project Immigrant Movement International 2010–2015 from Queens, New York to Europe for the first time to promote a new society together with local groups and associations in the form of a manifestation on Frankfurt's Römerberg. The group of artists Sans façon will subtly furnish public space with two theater spotlights by hitching them to the street lighting in a nearly parasitic manner, so that their circles of light will offer a stage for passersby and residents when night closes in. The Swiss artist San Keller's Markt der Freiwilligen (The Volunteers' Market) will offer an opportunity to meet voluntary unpaid attendants in charge of stands who will deal in free will, selling voluntariness to their customers. On Frankfurt's famous Schillermarkt, passersby will meet the photographer Eileen Perrier asking people into her photo studio—which recalls the classical studio of the nineteenth and early twentieth century—for a special kind of portrait session complete with historical headrest. If people in Frankfurt start behaving differently all of a sudden in the days of Playing the City 3, they might be following the British artist Tim Etchells' instructions. Titled Ways Out, his new work is comprised of a series of postcards with twenty instructions playfully inviting viewers to change their usual conduct.

In parallel to the activities unfolding in the city, the project team will do its work in public in headquarters set up in the Schirn—feeding the website, answering questions about the exhibition, and organizing and documenting all activities. Playing the City 3 can also be followed on the Internet as a digital extension of public space: the webpage www.playingthecity.de.

A USEFUL DREAM:
African Photography 1960-2010
Saturday 26.06 > Sunday 26.09.2010

In June 2010, for the third time, BOZAR EXPO presents the biennial Summer of Photography, a programme that includes some 30 exhibitions, colloquia, workshops, and other photographic events all over Belgium. The centrepiece of the festival is A Useful Dream, a retrospective exhibition of modern African photography. Western colonialism long monopolised how the African continent was seen. Until half-way through the 20th century, with a few exceptions, the pretext of “scientific” objectivity was used to reduce Africa to a series of exotic clichés. Since independence, African countries have undertaken an extensive process of emancipation, particularly when it comes to developing their own vision of themselves. Photography has played a key role in this process. The A Useful Dream exhibition retraces 50 years of history, showing how African photographers have seen their own continent. Over those years they have gradually broken free of the way of looking at Africa imposed on them by the West. The exhibition has been put together by Simon Njami, author of, among other works, the remarkable Anthologie de la photographie africaine.
