Artist Talk Anderson and Low
Artist Talk - Anderson and Low
Thursday 31 May 6pm
Photographers Jonathan Anderson and Edwin Low have collaborated since 1990, achieving consistent critical acclaim. This talk offers a special opportunity to hear directly from the artists about their work and their ideas on portraiture.
Anderson & Low's exhibition Manga Dreams is on display in the Sainsbury Centre Link until 24 June. Using subjects hand-picked by the artists over many months, the series combines photography and digital techniques to create a strikingly intense merging of the real and the fictional. The images use this hybrid reality to explore the global impact on youth culture of manga and anime, which have been adopted by individuals as diverse as Chinese businessmen and Lady Gaga.
Where: Sainsbury Centre Education Studio
Price: £6, £4 concessions; includes a drink in the Modern Life Café after the talk
