The Games: Inspiring Images

18 July - 19 September 2012

This unique exhibition from Lens on Twelve brings together twenty-three internationally renowned artists from countries participating in the Olympics. In just one photographic image, one artistic thought, each had to express what The Games meant to them. The exhibition puts side by side work from Venice Biennial representatives, Pulitzer Prize nominees, and Robert Capa Gold Medalists. Every work takes you on a different journey. Some transport you to another country, others on a personal journey. Certain works claim association with the Games, whilst others approach the subject more conceptually. The exhibition is a triumph of individual creativity and a celebration of the infinitely diverse responses to be had from this global sporting event.
