An Evening with Ingrid Pollard

Tuesday 6 November 20:00 until 21:00

Ingrid Pollard is a photographer, media artist, researcher and a graduate of the London College of Printing and Derby University. Ingrid has developed a social practice concerned with representation, history and landscape with reference to race, difference and the materiality of lens-based media. Her work is included in numerous collections including the Arts Council Collection and the Victoria & Albert Museum.  

Ingrid will be the inaugural Stuart Hall Fellow in residence at the University of Sussex in Autumn 2018. During her time at Sussex she will further a commission, The Valentines Days, which was part of Making Jamaica at Autograph ABP in London, exploring how a new image of Jamaica was created through photography in the 19th century.

Ingrid will be in conversation with Lubaina Himid (Turner Prize-winning artist, curator and Professor at the University of Central Lancaster), and Professor Catherine Hall (historian, trustee of the Stuart Hall Foundation and Emerita Chair, Centre for the Study of the Legacies of British Slave-ownership at University College London).
