Portrait Salon 2013
10/01/2014 - 08/03/2014
On the 10th January 2014, we opened the doors of Fuse Art Space for the first time. The inaugural exhibition was the first ever printed show of Portrait Salon, a form of “Salon des Refusés” for the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize, run by photographers Carole Evans and James O Jenkins. The show had previously existed as a one-event projection, and a newspaper - our director Sarah Faraday convinced Carole and James to commit the winning entries to print.
Our opening event featured a live performance by internationally acclaimed Swedish sound artist BJ Nilsen, which was recorded and later released (see Fuse Editions 001).
