Function 4

6th September 2013 - 24th November 2013

The Barbers Institute of Fine Arts, Edgbaston, Birmingham



Highly original and arresting angles on the theme of portraiture feature in this display of work by emerging photographic talent from Birmingham Institute of Art and Design, Birmingham City University.

In the fourth of an annual selective award collaboration, students were challenged to produce their own responses to the theme that has been central to the Barber’s 80th anniversary year, and to portraits from the collection and recent exhibitions. The resulting images – incredibly varied and wide-ranging – are displayed interspersed around the Barber’s main galleries, creating new dialogues with the historical works among which they hang.
