BASED IN BRIGHTON UK
Curated by Matt Martin
NEXT EXHIBITION: RIOT - LONDON 15.6.13
ABOUT - This monthly exhibition features photocopied/xerox photography from photographers around the world. what we are hoping to achieve with this project is to get photography off the Internet and get printed matter back in the the hands of the public. Photocopying is one of the cheapest ways to get photography printed, Basically we want the show to be like a giant zine that everyone can take a page from. After the first 6 shows a book will be made of all the photography from the 6 exhibitions - All photocopies will be for sale for as little as £2- £5 depending on size and the money made will go towards the making of the book.
2013 Projects - For 2013 the photocopy club will be working with other collectives and curators around the country. A selection of one night exhibitions will take place through out the year supporting photographers in the area and getting their work in to gallerys. DIY or DIE
Anonymous asked: are you still taking postal submissions? I'll really like to send some over to you guys
Not for the minute. We are working on plans for the next exhibition. Details will be in the website asap.
Thanks for the support - TPC
Anonymous asked: Do you have any tips or pointers for young people wanting to set up an art gallery? How do you go about finding a space, getting the word out, does money need to be raised, etc.? Anything would help!
A lot of cities in the UK have art projects that involve using empty shops for exhibitions. Check with your art or local council. Other wise try contacting landlords of shop properties or shopping centres who have empty units. Some times they will help as its always best to have something going on than just an empty shop. Funding is tricky depending on your project. You have to put in your own money to get exhibitions up and going. It’s not a money making game. Your aim should be to help artist get their work on the walls and to get the public to buy amazing work that inspires. Always remember DIY. No one is going to do it for you. Hope that helps. TPC
Anonymous asked: Hi, is the project of a zine, with the submissions you received for your various show in 2012, is still something you going to do?
We have lots of fun projects this year. So we are going to add this to the book. We are trying to take our time so we can make a book that we are really happy with. It will happen. Tpc
