FORMAT News: One Week to Go


One Week To Go

FORMAT19 Opening Weekend

14th - 17th March


Over 200 artists, over 50 exhibitions, over 20 venues, over 30 days

FORMAT19, the leading contemporary photography festival will once again welcome artists and visitors from around the world to the city of Derby, as it brings new and exciting photography to the UK for FORMAT’s ninth biennale.


A must see is the festival’s lead exhibition Mutable.Multiple featuring Max Pinckers, Edgar Martins, Stefanie Moshammer, Amani Willett, Anne Golaz and Virginie Rebetez .

Curated by Tim Clark and FORMAT Artistic Director Louise Fedotov-Clements this group show investigates the slippage between truth and fiction as it explores issues of entrapment and disappearance, misdirection and exile, invisibility and alternative identities and will "fundamentally challenge documentary conventions" says Tim Clark, who will be giving a curator's tour in Gallery One at QUAD on Friday 15th March at 3.00pm.

Brexit is almost upon us, so be sure to book your place for free entry to The Brexit Shop and hear artists Simon Roberts, Martin Seeds and Mark Duffy discuss their Brexit related projects.

Bring your running shoes and join Thierry Geoffroy on his Critical Run as he discusses the news events of the day while running the 1 mile between QUAD and the University of Derby on Markeaton Street. To take part just turn up at QUAD at 10.15am on Friday 15th March.


Book your tickets for the FORMAT19 Award Extravaganza where winners of the Portfolio Review Awards will be announced, Thierry Geoffroy's film Critical Run will be screened and Doug Fishbone will deliver his comical take on the internet of images.

Just £5 or free for Portfolio Review participants and FORMAT19 pass holders.
