The 17th – 19th May saw the launch of LOOK/13 International Photography Festival and our inaugural exhibition If truth be told…
The opening took place during Light Night – a city wide evening of cultural events from projections and exhibitions to street music and food. Walking through the city saw hoards of excited people, Light Night catalogue in hand, exploring the streets, following the sounds and smells. Open Culture got it spot on with Light Night – the well organised and promoted event, which attracted thousands of people!
We are pleased to say that our launch night was a great success, with a steady stream of visitors turning into a full house later on. We couldn’t have asked for a better launch pad to the rest of the month!
An artists talk took place on Saturday the 18th, chaired by Dewi Lewis photographic publisher and our mentor over the past year. Each artist spoke in-depth about their experiences and processes of producing the work on display. Each member of the collective have responded the question ‘Who do you think you are?’ – the main theme of LOOK13 festival – in fascinating and variegated ways, from the performance of gender to the notion of photographic truth itself.
Another discussion is scheduled for June 1st (TBC) which is well worth making the trip over for.
Fabricate Collective / If truth be told… runs until June 16th / Fallout Factory, 97 Dale Street, Liverpool
