Photo Oxford 2017 is a celebration of photography through exhibitions and related activities taking place at various collaborative venues in Oxford during the month of September. For this edition, the curators Tim Clark and Greg Hobson will engage in a series of explorations into the complex and often contradictory relationship between photography’s capacity to both conceal and reveal. OVADA is pleased to announce the following exhibitions as part of Photo Oxford:

Mariken Wessels:
Taking Off. Henry, My Neighbor
Curated by Tim Clark and Greg Hobson


Dutch artist Mariken Wessels has made it her business to tell the semi-plausible story of a real-life husband and wife, their failed marriage, sexual frustration and voyeurism via an extraordinary archive of found photographs, collage and sculpture. Taking Off. Henry My Neighbor allows us to enter into the lives of Henry and Martha, who embarked on a collaborative photographer-muse project together at their home in New Jersey, from 1981 to 1983.
Join Curators Tim Clark and Greg Hobson for a free exhibition talk at 12pm on Friday 8th September 2017. 

Admission free

Open: Thursday – Sunday, 12-6pm

Venue: OVADA warehouse
