Positions of Power: Photographs that explore who and what holds power today

© Abbie Jennings

A bold new exhibition opening this month at Liverpool’s Tapestry Gallery tackles issues of power in a series of diverse compelling photographs. Disparity Collective’s #Positions of Power examines both direct and sometimes unconventional power, with photographers Keeley Bentley, Drew Forsyth, Claire Griffiths, Mark Hobbs, Abbie Jennings and Conrad Ohnuki questioning and challenging what “power” means in 2018.

The show has been created as part of Redeye’s Lightbox project, an intensive year-long course which seeks to launch the careers of professional photographers through workshops, networking sessions and support from experts in the photography industry.

Mentored by Manchester Art Gallery curator Kate Jesson, the seven artists have worked through a programme designed to challenge assumptions, encourage reflection and nurture artistic potential. #Positions of Power is the working outcome of the work so far.

The exhibition and installation feature large-format prints, as well as custom designed newspapers, all framed within Liverpool’s newest arts venture, Tapestry Gallery, in the heart of the Fabric District, Liverpool.

Open to the public for just five days, from 24 March, the works feature a diverse set of people and places approach to photography, combining varied backgrounds and understandings. Discover more at disparitycollective.com.
