What surely promise to be an interesting exhibition is In Our World. New Photograpy in Britain curated by Filippo Maggia. The show includes works of 18 artists who over the last 10 years have attended the Royal College of Art Photography Masters offering a contemporary vision of research photography. The presence of artists from a variety of nations (Germany, Portugal, the United States, Switzerland, Ireland etc.) underlines the key role played by Royal College of Art into photography research. The artists in the exhibition are: Becky Beasley (1975, UK), Bianca Brunner (1974, Chur, Switzerland), Lisa Castagner (1975, Northern Ireland), Simon Cunningham, Annabel Elgar (1971, Aldershot, UK), Anne Hardy (1970, London), Lucy Levene (1978, London), Gareth McConnell (1972, Northern Ireland), Brígida Mendes (1977, Tomar, Portugal), Suzanne Mooney (1976, Ireland), Melissa Moore (1978, Nottingham), Harold Offeh (1977, Accra, Ghana), Kirk Palmer (1971, Northampton, UK), Sarah Pickering (1972, Durham City, Uk) Sophy Rickett (1970, London), Esther Teichmann (1980, Karlsruhe, Germany), Heiko Tiemann (1968, Bad Oeynhausen, Germany), and Danny Treacy (1975, Manchester).
