Brighton Photo Biennial, the UK’s largest international photography festival, returns for its sixth edition. For BPB14, we break with the single curator model and instead we are working in close partnership with a host of regional, national and international collaborators to develop a series of new projects on the theme of Communities, Collectives & Collaboration. BPB14 embraces novel perspectives and fresh approaches to generate commissions, new work and represent archive material.
Designed to inspire, challenge and celebrate the most democratic medium of our age, BPB14 takes place online and in public spaces, galleries and pop-up venues across Brighton & Hove and beyond, involving more than 45 photographers and collaborators all bound by a common approach.
Featuring re-discovered archives premiering new commissions, BPB14 addresses the role of photography across genres and includes established and emerging talent, across communities and continents. Photography is explored as prints, projections, pixels and pages.
The core programme takes place throughout October and offers a packed schedule of workshops, talks, screenings and other events to complement the exhibitions, ensuring everyone – whatever their level of interest or expertise, can participate in BPB14.
The festival is produced by Photoworks, an organisation dedicated to enabling participation in photography. Our programme includes commissions, publishing and participation. In collaboration with our partners, Photoworks connects outstanding artists with audiences and champions talent and ambition.
Photoworks is a National Portfolio Organisation supported by Arts Council England.
