Organised by Peacock Visual Arts, Aberdeen, Street Level Photoworks, Glasgow and Lillie Art Gallery, Milngavie FUTUREPROOF 15 is a series of exhibitions showcasing new talent from Scotland’s photography and fine art degree courses.
The exhibition intends to capture the variety within the medium of photography embraced by emerging artists. The title ‘FUTUREPROOF’ is a pun on the definition of futureproofing – of finding ways of not becoming obsolete in the future, and also of the subtle ways of anticipating future developments in the field, of seizing opportunities, as well as the actual and intangible influences in ideas that feed the arts of photography. This cross-section of work by young artists is a compelling insight into our place within the contemporary world, with personal stories, theatrical constructions, documentary observations on the social and the psychological, the ordinary and the dramatic, and vice versa. All this, executed through the innate and the practical application of photographic media.
