Last night was the opening night for 5 PLUS 5 at the Altamira Palace Gallery, IED Madrid. I was grateful to be invited to be a part of this exhibition that showcases the work of ten emerging photographic artists, curated by Moritz Neumüller; Five photographers who are based in the British Midlands and five who are based in Madrid. The selected artists are; David Sheperd, Dean O’Brien, Lauren Spencer, Nicola Onions and Oscar Parasiego, and from Madrid; Angela Losa, Anna Fawcus, Eoin Moylan, Inge Trienekens, and Juan Pablo Fassi. The projects shown in this exhibition orbit around themes such as memory, identity, space, the human condition and eternal subjects in the field of photographic creation. All the emerging practitioners selected to take part in this exhibition exchange use highly contemporary language and represent a new generation of globally connected artists that use the camera as one of many technological tools for image creation. For those who missed the opening, the exhibition will run from October 28th to November 14th at:Altamira Palace Gallery IED Madrid Calle Larra 14 28004 Madrid
5 plus 5 will also be exhibited at The Photographers’ Wall, Library of Birmingham in Spring 2015.
