BIO
Gasket is about photography. About where it is, where it’s been and where it may go in the future. It’s about photography’s pioneers, its unsung workhorses and its visionaries. It’s about different disciplines taking photography to unexpected places and using it as a means to explore a rapidly evolving world. Gasket is about photography that asks questions and tells stories. It’s about photography that is critical.
Gasket will introduce you to new artists, remind you of those who brought us here and challenge those in different disciplines to use photography in their own voice. We’ll write about exhibitions and works, both past and present, exploring ways in which traditional photographic genres are dissolving into something new.

Gasket will begin as a online collection which we hope will grow to a valuable resource of critical photography. We are developing exhibitions for the future and a programme of workshops and talks that we hope will build upon the critical work you see here.

We come from many different disciplines, and we’ll present what we find and explore from a multitude of perspectives. We’ll draw upon the talent around us and we’ll feature writing and perspectives from people who we feel have unique and valuable views to offer.

Adrift – The Unfamiliar Familiar in Modern Society


Dates:
Tue Oct 09, 2012 10:00 - Sun Oct 14, 2012

Location:
London, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

Adrift will present ten artists whose photography engages directly with the increasing tension that exists between the familiar and the unfamiliar. For some it is our environment that remains constant, forcing us to seek new forms of interaction in a rapidly evolving set of relationships. For others, it is the world itself that is shifting beneath us, and we seek solace in the familiarity of routine and tangible connections.

Are we searching for how we fit in to our world, or are we searching for a world into which we fit?

Where Did Everybody Go?


Dates:
Wed Oct 10, 2012 19:00 - Wed Oct 10, 2012

Location:
London, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

In association with the ‘Adrift’ exhibition, Gasket are delighted to have the opportunity to host a panel discussion featuring a number of the exhibiting artists.

Modern cities are increasingly depicted as vacant dystopian spaces, is it time to bring people back into how we photograph our cities?

The visual history of urban photography is filled with iconic images of people; a man leaps a puddle, a small boy holds a toy grenade in central park, people sunbake in the shade of a digger. Despite this strong and continuing tradition of photographing people in the street, there also appears to be a growing trend towards depicting cities and spaces of absence. Projects relating to people seem to be becoming more intimate, more personal, disappearing behind closed doors to show what happens inside. Conversely, the spaces within our cities are projected as unoccupied, as though everyone has just departed or perhaps were never there to begin with. We’re photographing empty carparks, abandoned buildings and vacant building sites. Is this a result of growing feelings of alienation or remoteness within the city? Are people living less of their lives in the public domain? Where did everybody go?

This panel will invite artists and academics to discuss how their work engages with ideas about people and the city and whether there is an increasing divide between depictions of spaces and their inhabitants

Particpating artists are; Manuel Vazquez, David Kendall and Simon Rowe, with further guests to be confirmed closer to the event.

Tickets are £5 and can be bought here;
