Photo50 is London Art Fair’s annual exhibition of contemporary photography, providing a critical forum for examining some of the most distinguishing elements of current photographic practice.
Guest curated each year, it highlights a timely theme in current photography and adds a space and context to the photography presented by galleries at the Fair.
2023 PHOTO50: BEAUTIFUL EXPERIMENTS
London Art Fair is proud to announce the theme for Photo 50 2023. Beautiful Experiments, curated by Pelumi Odubanjo and Katy Barron.
The 2023 edition of Photo50 will bring together the work of a group of multigenerational women photographers whose practice engages with their diasporic heritage, and through their lens explores domestic life and the home as not only a physical place but also a space of memory and generational exchange.
The title is taken from the 2019 book Wayward Lives, Beautiful Experiments: Intimate Histories of Riotous Black Girls, Troublesome Women, and Queer Radicals by the American writer Saidiya Hartmann, who writes about the lives of Black women in the US through a lens of fiction, using photographs from the archive and taking a sensory approach to narrating such histories.
The majority of selected artist are based in the UK, but they have a range of diasporic heritages and have made work that reflects their particular histories and ideas around home.
London Art Fair’s Photography Focus Day (Friday 20 January 2023) will feature a day of Talks and Tours dedicated to the examination and discussion of some of the most innovative and distinctive elements of contemporary photographic practice.
