Ingrid Pollard uses different photographic processes alongside printmaking, artist books, installation, video and audio to shed new light on important subjects. Following a residency in 2019 this solo exhibition will reveal her responses to the fascinating materials held in the Lesbian archive at GWL. The new works offer a vital challenge to the ongoing marginalisation and erasure of LGBTQ+ history and culture.
Ingrid Pollard, Friday 28th May to 23rd July, visit during GWL opening hours
Ingrid Pollard is a multi-media artist, photographer, researcher and lecturer. Pollard has developed a social practice concerned with representation, history and landscape with reference to race, difference and the materiality of lens-based media. Her work is included in numerous collections including the UK Arts Council and the Victoria and Albert Museum. Recent works include a re-examination of the UK and international archives to decolonise ethnographic and state-sponsored imagery of the former colonised countries.
In 2020 Ingrid Pollard and MK Gallery were awarded the Freelands Foundation Award to host a major exhibit of Ingrid’s work in 2022. In 2019 Ingrid Pollard was a recipient of the Paul Hamlyn Foundation Award for Artists, and in 2018 was the inaugural Stuart Hall Associate Fellow at the University of Sussex.
