Sound & Vision – Sat 14th December

For our final event of 2013, we’re linking up with Brighton SOURCE to put on Sound & Vision – an Bowie themed evening combining film, talking and partying. It’ll also double as the Miniclick Christmas Party.

Saturday 14th December, 7pm. Upstairs at The Fitzherberts, New Rd, Brighton. Free Entry.

David-Bowie-545

This is the first in a new series of events we’re going to be doing in 2014 taking photography out of it’s bubble and looking at it in a wider context. We’ll take a different cultural icon or movement each time, screen a film on the subject, have a panel discussion on it’s relationship to photography then have a big old party featuring relevant music. We kickoff with David Bowie…

The evening is in 3 parts…

Part 1 – 7pm to 8pm. A Screening of Alan Yentob’s seminal, rarely screened, 1974 Bowie documentary, Cracked Actor (running time 55mins).

Part 2 – 8pm to 9pm. Panel Discussion looking at Bowie’s relationship with photography, how he used it and how it used him.

Part 3 – 9pm ’till late. PARTY! Big old knees up featuring music by Bowie, music that inspired him and music he inspired featuring the collected Miniclick DJs plus some special guests.

The panel discussion will include…

Frances Tobin

Frances has worked in fashion for over 25 years. Ever since she can remember ‘image’ has meant everything to her and when at the age of 12 she saw David Bowie’s first appearance on TOTP, she knew she was not alone! She graduated from the Royal College of Art to the strains of “Let’s Dance” and has since worked for Gucci, Versace, Tierry Mugler, French Connection, Warehouse and many more.
