Photography collective makes fifth appearance at London Met

Uncertain States exhibition opens this November at The Cass

Date: 4 October 2014

Photography graduates behind one of the capital’s most exciting artist movements are once again holding an exhibition at London Met’s Sir John Cass Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design (The Cass).

Uncertain States is an artist-led project founded in 2009 by London Met graduates Fiona Yaron-Field, David George and Spencer Rowell, after completing their Photography MA studies at The Cass Art School.

They wanted to create a format where artists like them could show work to the public and also have a platform to share and support each other's artistic practice.

The fifth annual Uncertain States exhibition opens at the Bank Gallery in The Cass on Friday 14 November.

Uncertain States

The team behind Uncertain States publishes and distributes a free quarterly broadsheet newspaper, hosts monthly talks on contemporary photography and organises an annual exhibition to showcase the work of its contributors. The paper can be found at major galleries all over the UK.

The project offers a range of opportunities for artists to showcase and write about their latest work. The group is currently producing a series of short films which explore the different areas of the artists’ creative process.

The exhibition is open to photographers, both established and emerging, who have contributed to the Uncertain States broadsheets. This year's exhibition will bring together works by several photographers and the full listing can be found online.
