Steve MᶜQueen will invite all Year 3 primary school classes in London to be photographed for a Tate Britain installation. The project will potentially include 115,000 children across London’s 2,410 primary schools; each photo will include the children and their teachers.
In bringing together so many of these class photos from a single year, the work will embody the diversity of the city in which the artist grew up, as well as the potential of the next generation who will shape London’s future.

Nairy Baghramian continues her investigation of traditional sculpture with her new series Maintainers, which comprises three independent elements : raw aluminium casts, various shapes in coloured wax and lacquer painted braces. Arranged in the exhibition space in an apparently disparate manner, a resonance sets up between these objects with an inherent potential for interdependence and visible correlation between them.

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Lothar Baumgarten.
In a career spanning five decades, Lothar drew wide acclaim and respect for a singularly powerful and diverse body of work, from photography, to 16 mm films, slide projections, recordings, drawings, prints, artist books, short stories, as well as site-specific works, wall drawings and architecture-related interventions.
Today we mourn the loss of this extraordinary artist, a powerful writer, and a brilliant friend.
We will remember him always and the impact he has had on our lives will live on in his work.
The photography institute founded by David Goldblatt in 1989 was awarded The 2018 Principal Prince Claus Award on December 6, 2018 in Amsterdam.
Market Photo Workshop (Johannesburg, South Africa, 1989) was established in the final years of apartheid to make visual literacy and the craft of photography available to all races. At a time when the movement of black people was severely restricted, David Goldblatt set up the Market Photo Workshop to provide photographic training and equipment to black South Africans so they could give visual expression to their experiences. Among its many achievements are the creation of a strong local-regional network and a vast image archive of unique historical and social importance.
