A photographic exhibition by FIX Photographic Collective

29 October - 4 December 2021 (Times vary so do check Glasgow Art Club website)

As part of the ‘Art of the Possible’ programme, a collaboration between The Glasgow School of Art and Glasgow Art Club, the work of FIX Photography Collective is exhibited at the Glasgow Art Club.

FIX Photography Collective is an artist-run collective founded by Christina McBride and Jess Holdengarde in Glasgow. The collective aims to bring together a community of lens-based practitioners who share a commitment to analogue processes, a concern for the natural environment and a commitment to expand innovative and more sustainable processes and materials within photography.

‘In-Process’ brings together the work of four artists from across the UK - Joy Gregory, Jess Holdengarde, Melanie King and Christina McBride - whose practices question and expand the role of photography in relation to a wider discourse around landscape, the environment and issues of sustainability.

The works explore a range of media which utilise natural materials and components of the landscape. With the use of flowers, vegetables, seaweed and plant-based materials the artists present alternative methods and processes of creating photographic images. Through invention, method and light, these works consider the photograph in a landscape of ecological ruin and question the role of photography in a changing world.

The exhibition is part of the ‘Close Of Play: Climate Emergency and Creative Action’ series, organised by GSA to coincide and support COP26 in Glasgow. FIX will host one month of activities which includes the exhibition ‘In-Process’, an online panel discussion, a guest lecture and a number of workshops.

This exhibition is one of three at Glasgow Art Club as part of 'Art of the Possible' programme.

The first event is: 3 December 2021, 2-3pm ‘Sustaining a photographic practice in an ecological crisis’. Book free ticket via Eventbrite. FIX Photography Collective will be in conversation with The London Alternative Photography Collective and The Sustainable Darkroom. This online event and in-person exhibition are part of GSA’s yearlong series  'Close Of Play: Climate Emergency and Creative Action’. This series explores the ways in which creative actions and multi-disciplinary practice can address the climate emergency, sustainability, and climate justice.
