It´s official! Martin Parr to curate BPB 2010!

Martin Parr, the internationally respected photographer and curator, has been appointed Guest Curator for Brighton Photo Biennial's fourth edition, taking place in October and November 2010.

Martin Parr said, "I am looking forward to having the opportunity, through Brighton Photo Biennial, to share some of my passion for photography by exhibiting some recent finds of new work. I also want to build on the success of the last Biennial by focusing more on placing shows within Brighton & Hove and making the event a centre of dialogue and discovery."

Helen Cadwallader, Executive Director of Brighton Photo Biennial said, "I am absolutely delighted that Martin has accepted our invitation to curate BPB 2010. Myself, the Biennial team and the Biennial partners are really looking forward to working with Martin and the exciting possibilities this presents."

Since 2003, Brighton Photo Biennial has established itself as one of the most important celebrations of international photography in Europe delivering a series of challenging and stimulating events for both the general public and art specialists. The Biennial is a partnership organisation and works with a diverse and exciting range of galleries, visual arts organisations and educational institutions in the city of Brighton & Hove and in cities and venues across the South East region.

Brighton Photo Biennial runs a continuous education programme that is active during and between Biennials, creating grass roots projects with local communities, artists and individuals.
