Between Us: Birmingham Portraits

Friday 20th March, 2015

Great Western Arcade | 11:00

A spellbinding street-level view of the city's people, created by artist Geoff Broadway.

Inspired by the street photography tradition, moving image artist Geoff Broadway has created a spellbinding portrait of Birmingham’s people. A 25-minute film, Between Us is shot entirely in slow-motion, giving viewers the opportunity to explore what can be seen and felt in the faces of others as they move through our public spaces. A tranquil, oneiric experience, it will be running as an installation throughout Friday and Saturday; a fitting antidote to the hustle and bustle of the city-centre rat race. Artist's talk: Geoff Broadway will be discussing the work in the space at 16:00 on Saturday 21 March.
