A series of photographs by Ben Smith pairing refugees with new friends made in Denmark and the UK. Each portrait is shot by the sea or water to allude to migration and transience and includes an object chosen by the subject to signify belonging. This photographic series is a part of BP Art Exchange display Belonging Together documenting participatory interventions devised by refugees, students and communities working alongside artist Albert Potrony in India, Denmark and the UK. Belonging Together explores through film and photography Art’s capacity to create a social space for exchange and a sense of belonging. It is on display until 14 July at the McAulley Gallery and Screening Room in the Clore Learning Centre, Tate Modern.
Schools, artists, institutions and learning professionals can submit work to be considered for showing in the online exhibition. The gallery is public and all work is moderated. If you would like us to consider your own learning project for the online exhibition, please email us a selection of up to ten images with captions and a brief summary of the project to firstname.lastname@example.org.
