As part of the Photoworks Festival, we have created a ‘festival in a box’, which will be released in September but available to pre-order by signing up as a Photoworks Friend now.

Photoworks Friends are then invited to curate the festival in their own space – at home, in a community space, with friends or in a gallery or studio.

Designed as a deconstructed magazine, you become the curator and choose how to install the festival at home or in our community space. The ‘festival in a box’ includes posters of varying shapes and sizes by contemporary artists including Farah Al Qasimi, Lotte Andersen, Poulomi Basu, Roger Eberhard, Ivars Gravlejs, Pixy Liao, Alix Marie, Ronan McKenzie, Sethembile Msezane, Alberta Whittle and Guanyu Xu.

Referencing Marcel Duchamp’s La Boîte-en-valise (1936 – 1941)and inspired by Dayanita Singh’s innovative and seminal ‘mobile museums’ this limited edition box also includes texts by Julia Bunnemann, Simon Baker, Pamila Gupta, Shoair Mavlian, Thyago Nogueira, Lucy Souter and others to be announced.

It has been designed by artists Giliane Cachin & Joshua Schenkel and includes a combination of different textures, shapes and forms to experiment with at home.

We are only making a limited number of these –  so sign up now so you don’t miss out!

Or, if you would like a festival in a box but currently do not have the funds to become a Photoworks Friend, we have an allocation of boxes set aside. Please contact info@photoworks.org.uk to let us know.
