About the event

Revolv Collective will present its new Archives as Mediums exhibition – an interrogation of the notion of the archive through the use of photography, film and sculpture – at Four Corners Gallery in East London from Tuesday 5 to Saturday 9 September 2017.

Supported by The University of Portsmouth’s Professional Practice Fund, this first exhibition by Revolv features the work of Krasimira Butseva, Laura Gowing, Vera Hadzhyiska and Lina Ivanova. Together, they challenge the purpose and function of the archive.

Joint statement by Revolv: “In this exhibition, we recreate, reinvent and preserve the archive as a medium. From social, cultural and political documentation, to new lines of construction and appropriation, visitors will see the archive change and evolve through bodies of cultural, collective and personal creative work.”
In addition to the Archives as Mediums exhibition, there will be supporting events to inform and inspire emerging artists, including:

On Friday 8 September, Revolv will welcome Chrono Collective, Pupil Sphere and London Alternative Photography Collective to collaborate in the making of a zine. This low-cost publication will celebrate emerging artists while creating an opportunity for collaboration between likeminded creative professionals.

On Saturday 9 September, Revolv will welcome Carole Evans, Felicity Hammond, Phil Serfaty and Russell Squires to present valuable creative advice. The talks will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A session.
