It’s All Lies

06 Feb-15 Feb 2014

Photography by UEL students

Photography exhibition It’s All Lies is part of a scheme created by Iniva to provide professional guidance and support to the next generation of emerging artists. The University of East London is the first of three selected institutions that Iniva will be working with in 2014. The works on display at Rivington Place have been developed through each artist’s research and approach to the photographic image.

UEL Students collaborated to produce an exhibition exploring ideas of what constitutes a lie. Perceptions of what a lie might entail are revealed through each work, and each piece is influenced by the individual photographers’ experiences, culture and lifestyle. The artworks range from conceptual to documentary, and artists include Rusty Fox, Nate Hilton, Naomi James, Tomas Januska, Grace Lee, Nichola Lowry and Charles Woodward.
