In Conversation with Chris Nash Chris Nash will give an insight into his working practice and experiences, discussing a range of topics. An exclusive opportunity to pose questions and find out more about photographing dance.
Dance in Focus provided a unique opportunity for photographers across London to further their skills in capturing movement and directing dancers for camera under the expert guidance of highly acclaimed dance photographer Chris Nash.
Photographers with a range of experience worked with professional dancers from West London dance companies to create new and thought-provoking pieces of art inspired by movement.
'With these workshops, the end result was always going to be about experiencing the process and increasing the participants knowledge of the technical aspects of both photography and dance, but I am so pleased with the results from both the beginners and the intermediate groups that I think they make a wonderful exhibition.'
Chris Nash, Curator
Doors and Bar open at 7pm, talk begins at 8pm.
When & Where
Metal was founded by Jude Kelly OBE in 2002 and was created as an artistic laboratory to champion the need for continual investment in artistic investigation and the development of innovative ideas that could shift the thinking in the UK cultural sector.
We provide innovative, multi-disciplinary residency space for artists from the UK and overseas in Liverpool and Southend on Sea.
Alongside providing space for artists and thinkers to develop their ideas and further the philosophy of their work, we are interested in how this artistic process, and the practice of artists can input into, and potentially influence political and social issues of the day.
Through our artistic programme we draw out evidence and ideas for a better understanding of the artist’s role in civic life, and ensure that these are shared with a wide and diverse set of partners.
These ideas are showcased and disseminated on a regular basis through residencies, exhibitions, events, performance, discussion and publications.
