Comission winnners and artists announced for Night Contact
At this new London Multimedia and Photography Festival, work by over 50 innovative artists including Augustin Rebetez, Stephen Gill, Mishka Henner, Clare Strand and Penelope Umbrico will be on display for one night only.
Anna Stevens, Contact Editions and Night Contact festival Co-Founder says, “As the technology of cameras and other hardware and software advances, multimedia photographic pieces are emerging as works that blur the lines between these forms of creative expression. We have established Night Contact because at present there is no one event or space which encourages a high quality showcase of work of this nature, with photography at its core.”
The work in the festival is curated from a combination of invited artists and open submissions to create an engaging and inspiring programme.
Work shown in Gillett Square will be by the following artists:
Rrrrrrrroll/ Christian Patterson/ Luke Norman and Nik Adam/ Penelope Umbrico/ Mariah Skellorn, Laura Copsey & Michael Cranny/ Maja Daniels & Anne Hovad Fisher/ Steve Ryan, Pablo Jargstoft & Charlie Doran/ Mark Lewis/ Stephen Gill/ Lorenzo Vitturi/ Augustin Rebetez/ David Oates & Mishka Henner/Clare Strand/Jason Dee
