Private Reception: Mitch Epstein at the new Open Eye Gallery

29 November 2011


North Member Programme, Reception

Open Eye Gallery
19 Mann Island
Liverpool, L3 1BP

Founded in 1977, Open Eye is an independent not-for-profit photography gallery based in Liverpool. 2011 is big year for the Gallery as it re-launches in a brand new purpose-built home in one of the City’s most prestigious and prominent developments on the Liverpool Waterfront.

Join Patrick Henry (Director) and Karen Newman (Curator) for a private reception at the new space and a chance to view the opening exhibitions including the first UK solo show by American photographer Mitch Epstein. Entitled American Power, Epstein’s photographs examine how energy is produced and used in the American landscape, questioning the power of nature, government and corporations.

This event is part of a series of events programmed by the Contemporary Art Society in the North East. Membership cost is £25 for New Members. This is the 3rd year of the pilot programme and we are currently offering programming until July 2012.
