Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Rescheduled from Autumn 2010, this symposium explores the impact and legacy of the photography magazine TEN.8. Published throughout the 1980s before it folded in 1992, TEN.8 was conceived by then Birminghambased Derek Bishton, Brian Homer and John Reardon to bring together the city’s photographers. Its impact however, reached far beyond this initial aspiration.
Speakers include Derek Bishton, journalist and founder member of TEN.8; David Brittain, Manchester Metropolitan University; Dr. Eugenie Shinkle, University of Westminster; and Mark Sealy, Director of Autograph ABP (Association of Black Photographers).
The Symposium takes place on Wednesday 4 May 2011 from 1pm-5pm at mac, Cannon Hill Park, Birmingham B12 9QH. Tel: 0121 446 3232. See: http://www.macarts.co.uk/events/Get%20Involved/Symposium
