As part of our exhibition schedule in Nottingham, we are delighted to announce a very rare opportunity to hear Alex Boyd give a talk outside Scotland. We’ve brought Alex all the way from the Outer Hebrides to give an exclusive, illustrated talk for Inside the Outside.
At the Creative Scotland Awards Alex was rightly described as being “widely regarded as one of the rising stars of contemporary Scottish photography".
Alex will be both exhibiting and talking about his current series ‘The Hebrides’ which began in 2013 when he was appointed as the Royal Scottish Academy Artist in Residence on the Isle of Skye. Having trained in the US with contemporary artists using Victorian photographic processes, he wanted to push his practice in new directions, physically, mentally, and aesthetically.
About Alex Boyd
Alex Boyd is a photographer and curator based in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. His work has been widely exhibited internationally with solo exhibitions at the Scottish Parliament, as well as group exhibitions at the Royal Academy, Royal Ulster Academy and Royal Scottish Academy. He is best known for his collaborations with poets, such as National Poet of Scotland Edwin Morgan.
His work is held in the collections of the National Galleries of Scotland, The Royal Photographic Society, the Royal Scottish Academy, the V&A, and the Yale Centre for British Art in the US.
In March 2012 Boyd appeared in a new BBC series and book on the history of Victorian photography, and in 2013 with photographer Rankin talking about the work of Hill & Adamson.
His first book ‘St Kilda - The Silent Islands’ will be released in November 2016.
The event will take place on the evening of 14th October at 8.30pm after the private view for the ITO exhibition. It will be held in the exhibition venue, the Photo Parlour, Nottingham who are hosting our exhibition.
The talk will last approximately one hour, with an opportunity to ask questions directly afterwards.
Tickets are strictly limited to just 20 due to the size of the venue, as such are sure to sell out fast.
The event is accessed by three flights of stairs.
- A full no quibble refund policy applies.
In the meantime, please keep an eye on social media and our website for other related announcements.
