About the DISPLAY

Youth Culture is the theme for Accumulate’s 2019 pop-up display, featuring new work by young Londoners who are affected by homelessness.

Working at the heart of leading cultural spaces including Autograph, the BBC, Somerset House and the Youth Club Archive, the works shared were created in a series of creative workshops that introduced photography, fashion, creative writing and zine making.

The resulting display explores the participants' identity and representation, and their own ideas of youth culture.

Photographic portraiture and street scenes represent each individual’s perspective on urban life. DIY culture has been embraced in a series of personalised Levi’s denim jackets. Mud rock sculptures reimagine a collection of public monuments, reflecting the young people’s concerns with issues of race, gender and communication. Their voices further accompany the works with poetry and personal stories in a series of audio guides.

Over the last ten weeks they have worked on individual and collaborative assignments introduced by leading professionals and organisations, often resulting in working with numerous art forms for the first time. Youth Culture celebrates these young artists' creative vision as well as their shared journey of new experiences and encounters with London’s creative scene.

ABOUT OUR learning and outreach programme

For 30 years Autograph has engaged with diverse groups and communities to explore issues of identity, representation, social justice and human rights through photography and film.

At our gallery and in the community, we create welcoming spaces for people to share experiences, make artwork and become inspired by contemporary photographers and our unique archive.
