FIX Photo Festival, an annual 10 day extravaganza held at Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf on the South Bank in the heart of London. It is a free photographic exhibition, on 4 floors with 300 works on display produced and curated by LANG Director Laura Noble. This free exhibition of photography includes works by an array of domestic and international talent.
In this, the second year of the festival, FIX Photo is curated in response to the consequences of the dramatic political shifts of 2016. Exhibiting artists will issue a positive challenge to the social and cultural divisions of the past year through the presentation of work connected by four key themes of Identity, Community, Unity & Harmony and Environment.
Displaying work by established artists as well as new talent, FIX Photo is committed to giving emerging artists the opportunity to share their work outside of a traditional gallery context. Hosted over four floors alongside the Thames, this unique display in a building full of character offers an idiosyncratic contrast to a formal white space. Situated within the heart of the cultural centre of London, FIX Photo aims to encourage new audiences to photography as the ultimate democratising medium in the arts. FIX Photo promises a visual treat for audiences and a variety as broad as the medium itself.
FIX Photo will explore these themes through fine art photography, photojournalism, street photography and portraiture and fully embrace the diversity and inclusivity of the medium. Exhibiting the highest standard of work artists will celebrate the scope of talent on the photographic scene. This exhibition will also include the premier viewing of Chris Steele-Perkins current ‘The New Londoners’ project – exploring London’s diversity through family portraits inside people’s homes of almost 200 Nationalities residing in the capital.
