‘36EXP.’ is a photographic exhibition involving 36 artists and 36 contact sheets. The concept of the exhibition is based upon a standard 36 exposure photographic film. Over the past six months, ‘36EXP.’ has been accepting submissions from artists, photographers and students from all over the world, including Germany, Amsterdam, Canada, India, Israel, China and Australia. The outline of the brief was simply to return to photographic film, whether 35mm, 120mm or slides, and to produce a contact sheet from the roll of film used. The exhibition features a selection of photographs from each artist as well as their contact sheet, providing an unusual combination of ‘finished photograph’ alongside an accompanying contact sheet, revealing the photograph’s development and production.
In this ambitious exhibition, digital photography is rejected in an attempt to rejuvenate traditional film methods. Each artist has taken a critical and considered approach to the exhibition of their contact sheet; some have consciously planned each frame, creating ‘aesthetic contact sheets’, whilst others have retained a more organic and natural approach, simply exhibiting the result of using film.
To celebrate the exhibition, a book version will be published and launched at the Private View on Thursday 30th September 2010 at the EASA Gallery, Manchester (invitation attached below). The 160 page, hardback book features all 36 contact sheets and a selection of photographs from the exhibition.
