Book Launch and One-Night-Exhibition: Science & Fiction

Thursday 22 May, 6-8pm

at WORK Gallery

Science & Fiction is the fourth book showcasing the most recent work produced by the Royal College of Art (RCA) Photography Programme, situating fresh talent from one of the UK’s more innovative photography courses alongside texts by novelists, artists, philosophers and academics. Through the channels of science and fiction–science as data, image algorithms and surrender to technological temptations; and fiction as invention, construction and critique–these young photographers approach the questions and tensions that surround the current state of the photographic image. To celebrate the book launch, WORK is hosting a one-night-only exhibition by 20 emerging international artists. WORK is delighted to announce that special guest Tom McCarthy will speak at the launch.
