Solo exhibition of new work by Ingrid Pollard.

The exhibition is a brand new commission from Talking on Corners and is part of a wider project focused on the work of Pollard, involving THG and partners: the Devon and Exeter Institution, Libraries Unlimited, and the Arts & Culture and Geography departments at the University of Exeter. Talking on Corners has worked with the partner institutions to programme a series of wide-ranging events including workshops with Pollard, local and national creative practitioners, artist and academic talks, a symposium, a virtual exhibition, special art and book displays culminating in this exhibition of Pollard’s new work. A programme of events and talks will be released in the new year.

Ingrid Pollard - Pollard’s photographic images are invested with a sense of belonging; are an act of belonging, be that through cultural, hereditary, practice, experience or through a landscape. While investigating race, ethnicity and public spaces she has developed a body of work juxtaposing landscape and portraiture which provide a context for issues of migration, family and home. Pollard uses digital, analogue and alternative photographic processes, also incorporating printmaking, image-text and artist books, installation, video and audio.

Pollard studied Film and Video at the London College of Printing and MA in Photographic Studies, University of Derby and holds a PhD from the University of Westminster. She was one of twenty founding members of Autograph (the Association of Black Photographers), and is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society. 

Her work has been exhibited widely, including Tate Britain, Victoria & Albert Museum & Photographers Gallery, London. In  2019, she received the BALTIC Artist Award and was a recipient of the Paul Hamlyn Foundation Award.
