Brighton Photo Fringe Trainee Curator Sarah French will lead a tour through selected exhibitions around Hove beginning at King's House, the BPF Collectives & Festivals Hub. The tour will focus on themes of representing the human experience and re-interpreting identity that are evident throughout the festival. At King’s House you will be taken around some of the fourteen exhibitions by photography collectives and European festivals on show there, including Reconnecting Arts, The Soft Collective, the Cork Photo Panel Choice Award and King’s House: In Transition.

The tour will then continue to The Naked Eye Gallery for SCREENED, an exhibition curated by Ardesia Projects, one of BPF’s selected collectives and including the acclaimed project Big Sky Hunting by Italian photographer Alberto Sinigaglia. The tour will then visit work + play at Gallery Lock In, exploring collective identity and social class, before arriving at the second BPF Hub of the tour, The Regency Town House, where six artists are displaying work including site-specific projects from Amelia Shepherd and Alex Bamford who will be talking about their work.

This year there will be three Saturday morning tours devised by the BPF trainee curators taking a number of different routes around some of the 40 exhibitions in the festival. 
Choose the tour that matches your interest or take them all. 
It’s a wonderful way to explore the city and see a whole range of new photography.
