Mishka Henner – Male, Birmingham

BlackLab and the Alternative Camera Club present The Mugshot.
In the first of six monthly Saturday morning sessions at Whitworth Art Gallery, BlackLab’s Mishka Henner presents a visually eclectic morning dwelling on the photographic mugshot. In the context of the recent riots and the subsequent and unprecedented distribution of looters’ CCTV mugshots across the web, print and TV media, how have visual artists of the past and present engaged with this unique form of portraiture?
The BlackLab Saturday sessions aim to explore alternative ways of presenting and engaging with images, tying them to recent events and relating them to current and past artistic practices. Experimental in nature, the sessions attempt to introduce audiences to the concepts and ideas underpinning current trends in visual art.
Presented in collaboration with the Alternative Camera Club at Whitworth Art Gallery.
Third Saturday of the month until Christmas. 11am – 1pm. £5
