Eastreet vol.2 – the grand opening of the exhibition
Eastreet vol. 2 is the second iteration of a successful exhibition that, to our knowledge, it is the only project of this scale dedicated exclusively to street photography from Eastern Europe. Our intention is to present a group portrait of people in public spaces of Eastern European cities. The questions we pose are: What kind of changes do they experience and what kind of interactions do they participate in? How does an individual shape her/his environment, how does it influence our life, how do we interact with it? What is hidden under the surface of everyday life? Last, but not least – we want to promote the street photographers working in this part of the world and build a platform for devoted to the exchange of ideas, dialogue and inspiration.
The exhibition consists of 56 photographs presenting the public space of Eastern Europe, chosen by the project’s curators as a result of an open competition
This year the exhibition will be accompanied by a special large-format projection of selected 50 photographs onto one of the gallery’s walls. The projections will constitute an integral element of the exhibition and as such they will refer directly to the printed photographs on display.
The grand opening of the exhibition, with photographers and curators in attendance, will take place on 11 July 2014 in the Workshops of Culture in Lublin. The exhibition will be open from 8 July till 31 July 2014 and will be accompanied by the publication of a photo album containing all the presented photographs.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a dedicated catalogue containing information about all the presented authors and followed up by a debate on the photographic documentation of space, featuring invited city-planners, artists and photographers.
Curators: Tomasz Kulbowski, Joanna Kinowska, Aleksander Bochenek, Grzegorz Ostręga
