Photo50 returns to the London Art Fair

The annual photography showcase will feature 50 contemporary photographic works centred around the theme 'Immaterial Matter'

Now in its eighth year, Photo50 features contemporary photographic works selected by a guest curator or curators.

This year, the five-day showcase is curated by Charlie Fellowes and Jeremy Epstein, directors of Edel Assanti gallery in Victoria, south London.

The exhibition, Immaterial Matter, examines the distinctions between the digital and the material in photography, and considers how the line between the two is becoming increasingly blurred.

Immaterial Matter will demonstrate the irrevocably altered state of photography as a classification in the post-internet era,” say the curators in a press statement.

The exhibition, which runs as part of the main Fair, will feature lens-based photography alongside digitally-generated imagery.

Amongst the featured artists are Aram Bartholl, Joe Hamilton, Nicolai Howalt, Brenna Murphy, Andrew Norman Wilson and Kate Steciw.

The London Art Fair runs from 15 to 19 January at the Business Design Centre in Islington. www.londonartfair.co.uk/photo50
