IN PROGRESS: Laia Abril - Hoda Afshar - Widline Cadet - Adama Jalloh - Alba Zari
20 May – 24 October 2021
IN PROGRESS presents a collection of solo shows by five of today’s most innovative photographers and photo-based artists. The exhibition places emphasis on each of the artist’s individual projects, motivations, and creative practices, and intentionally refrains from linking them to an overarching theme or idea.
Featuring new works alongside work-in-progress, this exhibition explores personal history, cultural identity, nationality, community, migration, displacement, responsibility, belief, morality, and memory. It highlights the diverse possibilities that photography offers in terms of research, investigation, critique, and self-expression, in the pursuit of both artistic and social progress.
IN PROGRESS is commissioned by the RPS and curated by Aaron Schuman for the Bristol Photo Festival.
