Brighton is well known for being an artistic hub. But next week things are set to get even more creative when the Brighton Photo Biennial arrives in town.
New Documents is the fourth incarnation of the Biennial, which will feature five exhibitions by guest curator Martin Parr.
It is notable for being the world’s first frame-free photography festival. The programme of photo displays, talks and workshops will be viewable entirely on foot in galleries and public spaces in Brighton and Hove.
“As curator I want to make this festival fresh, distinctive and focused on Brighton and Hove. This city is the ideal venue for photo biennial as it has a natural cultural consistency of its own,” Parr said.
The Brighton Photo Biennial opens 2 October until 14 November 2010 in various locations around Brighton and Hove. Visit bpb.org.uk for full listings and information.
