Revolv Collective presents One Year exhibition

Revolv Collective is celebrating its first anniversary with the One Year exhibition at Safehouse 1.

A preview will take place on Thursday, June 28. The main show is open from Friday, June 29, to Sunday, July 1.

To discover unseen digital, analogue and alternative photography, Revolv issued an open call to non-professional photographers, art graduates and current BA and MA students to submit a single image and contextual information.

The result is a stunning and varied collection by 77 photographers from 13 countries.

One Year

The One Year exhibition is set to include a host of unusual features.

On the opening evening, Revolv will officially launch an app, which will be an essential part of the interactive experience of the show.

Another feature will be a Google Chrome Extension, including all the winning and shortlisted images.

“Our four-day One Year exhibition features beautiful and thought-provoking photographs by incredible talents from the UK and around the world, both previous Revolv contributors and many new to the platform,” said Revolv Collective.

“Tackling an array of important contemporary subject matters, via a diverse range of photographic styles and techniques, it is a fitting celebration of our mission: to provide greater exposure and opportunities for emerging photographers.”

At the preview on the Thursday, the founders of Revolv will reflect on the successes and challenges faced in the past year.

Guests will also receive an insight into the selection of the images on show and find out about upcoming plans.

Exhibiting artists have been invited to take additional works to the main show to spark ‘open informal’ discussions.
