Metro is delighted to announce our new print sponsorship and partnership with Photo50, a prestigious guest-curated exhibition of contemporary photography featuring fifty works.
Located within London Art Fair it provides a critical showcase of some of the most interesting and distinctive elements of current photographic practice. Metro’s inaugural exhibition collaborating with Photo50, ‘Against Nature’ is curated by Sheyi Bankale
of Next Level Projects and poses a series of questions that consider what it is to look at and display a photograph, and how a photograph can become elevated to the status of an object, act or intervention.
Sheyi Bankale says: “The exhibition takes its title from the novel ‘Against Nature’ by Joris-Karl Huysmans and will explore the possibilities of how we relate to renewed storytelling within the photographic medium, blurring the boundary between the tangible object and the aesthetic plain.”
Metro is working with one of the fifty artists Hassan Hajjaj
, producing a vast image printed on Vinyl Phototex
that will be installed on three main walls of the gallery.
