Power Structures is a new photographic exhibition co-curated by architectural photographer Luke O’Donovan and architect/urban planner and photographer Francisco Ibáñez Hantke. The exhibition focuses on how socioeconomic and political structures shape the built environment and the far-reaching footprint of urban expansion. This in-person (yay!) exhibition will be held in real, physical, galleries in Glasgow and London this June.
“The environmental transformation of recent years has gone hand in hand with social, political, and economic upheaval across the globe. The Power Structures exhibition seeks to make the unseen and often intangible powers that drive these changes visible, through the ways in which they have come to dictate the forms of buildings and cities around the world.”
Power Structures “features both emerging and established artists from around the world, who together provide an international perspective on some of the defining issues of our time. Whilst the exhibited works draw upon a variety of artistic techniques and cultural influences, there is an inescapable interconnectedness between the subject matter of images produced on opposite sides of the planet.”
You can expect to see work by Catherine Hyland, Cristobal Palma, Finbarr Fallon, Francisco Ibáñez Hantke, Hagit Keysar, Hashem Shakeri,Henrietta Willaims and Anna Minton (writer), Jana Sophia Nolle, Luke O’Donovan, Marcos Zegers, Noelle Mason, Tim Crocker, and Tom Hegen.
