29th Nov 2012 / Portrait Salon Launch Party

The Fringe closes on November 17th, but that doesn’t mean Miniclick is stopping! We run events all year round…

Portrait Salon present a night of simultaneous projections across the UK. They are teaming up with the Miniclick Photography Talks to present the Brighton leg. Thursday, 29th November at 7pm. Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar. Free Entry.

To launch this year’s Portrait Salon exhibition and newspaper, they’re holding simultaneous parties in London, Leeds, Cardiff and Brighton. We’re delighted to be linking up with PS again to bring the Brighton leg of this party, where (for the first time) this year’s exhibition will be projected and the newspaper will be available to purchase.

Portrait Salon is a form of Salon des Refusés – an exhibition of works rejected from a juried art show – which has a long tradition as a fringe way of showcasing artists’ work that may otherwise go unseen. Devised by Carole Evans and James O Jenkins, Portrait Salon aims to show the best of the unselected entries from the annual National Portrait Gallery Photographic Portrait Prize. We figure that, out of the 6000+ rejected entries, there are excellent portraits which deserve to be seen.

Portrait Salon launched last year with a projection and the publication of a newspaper. We aim to maintain a high quality of work, and this year we are honoured to have Karen Newman from Open Eye Gallery in Liverpool, Hat from Lucid Rep and photographer Dan Burn-Forti to select the work we will show. We are also very grateful to the Arts Council and our sponsors to ensure that the success of 2011 will be continued.
