Mandy Lee Jandrell was shortlisted for OPEN14 and selected by our three Trainee Curators to appear in our outdoor exhibition in Victoria Gardens.
Born in Pretoria, South Africa, Jandrell graduated with an MA in Fine Art from Goldsmiths in 2003. She has exhibited and published widely, and is currently Course Leader for Photography at Southampton Solent University. She has just completed a collaboration with artist Melanie Stidolph entitled Everything Eventually Connects at the Solent Showcase.
The exhibition has arisen from conversations between the artists that have developed over the last eight years. Over time, they have developed a way of interrogating one another’s practice, finding ways to articulate and question their ideas and their increasingly experimental outcomes. You can read their fascinating blog here.
A graduate of the University of Brighton, he has exhibited in group shows in China, Hungary, Latvia and Switzerland. He also has extensive experience working as a photographic and cultural producer. Currently, he is coordinating portfolio reviews at “fotopub” festival of contemporary photography, held in Novo mesto, Slovenia. This exciting festival focuses on emerging artists working in a photographic context and aims to provide meaningful platforms for engagement with established art professionals and the public. Find out more below.
“fotopub” 2015 takes place from 3 to 8 August in Novo Mesto, Slovenia. Six group exhibitions will be held by emerging Slovene and foreign artists; a photography book fair; a music and entertainment programme and a portfolio review, which will bring together twelve well known and respected artists, curators, editors, publisher and gallerists from the international art world. “fotopub” is now inviting young artists working in a photographic context to apply for a place on their Portfolio Reviews. “fotopub” curatorial team will select up to 15 artists from the open call. Each of the participating artists will hold meetings with every reviewer and becomes eligible for the Portfolio Prize. Deadline: 10th July. Apply here.
