Stuart Whipps – Reference Works Talk

Stuart Whipps – Reference Works Talk

12th October 2013

Library of Birmingham Gallery, Birmingham


11:00 am Gallery Tour

Admission Free

Artist, Stuart Whipps, will discuss the work made in the old Birmingham Central Library for the Reference Works commission for the new Library of Birmingham.    He will explain how structures within the building became marginalised over time through structural and operational changes in the Central Library; how the rational vision of Madin’s original design became lost over time following the re-purposing of functional spaces and how, through this work, he seeks to encourage debate around what is saved and what is destroyed when buildings are replaced.

Whipps’ work will be exhibited as part of REFERENCE WORKS at The Gallery within the new Library of Birmingham from the 3rd September – 29th December 2013. REFERENCE WORKS is Birmingham’s largest photography commission, developed in response to the creation of the new Library of Birmingham.

The event is the third in a series of Photographers Talks linked to REFERENCE WORKS at the new Library of Birmingham.
