HUMAN FLOWS is a juried photographic exhibition that explore flows in all their manifestations including – but not limited to – dance, body, energy, migration, pilgrimage and protest.
Flows are an integral property of the human experience. They influence our actions as individuals and as a society. From Dance to Migration, from Energy to Pilgrimage, flows can take many forms. Flows may be voluntary or forced, invited or constrained.
The artists selected for the Human Flows exhibition by our jury are:
Ahmet Albayrak, Emiliano Cavicchi, Keith Dannemiller, Michelle Frankfurter, Paul Gaffney, Eran Gilat, Beth Hankes, Stephan Mazurek, Rory Oneill, Armenoui Kasparian Saraidari, Mattia Vacca, Yinan Wang, Lynne Warberg, and Emine Ziyatdinova
The exhibition "Human Flows" will be exhibited at Cambridge's Alison Richard Building starting on February 7.
There will an opening symposium followed by wine reception on Thursday, February 7th at 5pm, with speakers including Professor Dame Caroline Humphrey (University of Cambridge) and Professor David Napier (University of the City of London), both highly involved in research related to Human Flows.
