Side Gallery

Side Gallery Dedicated to Documentary Photography since 1977
Open July 17th - October 3rd
Wednesday to Sunday 11am - 5pm Side Gallery is committed to exhibiting the best in international humanist documentary, its concerns rooted in a long-term engagement with working class, marginalised and threatened communities in the North of England – and by extension with the experiences of those documented by some of the finest photographers working across the world.
(65)

It is committed to preserving and making accessible these extraordinary bodies of work, whilst using them to inform, lever and sustain the new production that will continue to take documentary practice forward. Side is centrally concerned with visual narratives: the quality of the imagery; the aesthetic and moral questions that are raised; sharing visions of the world and the marginalised experience to which they are able to give such insistent power.

(Off)SIDE Cinema - COLLECTIVE NOW

Our own Side Cinema is facilitating an online season of screenings and discussions exploring films made by collectives, grown from community and which challenge the mainstream media representation. We will be questioning the notions of a ‘post truth’ society and the role of a documenter within it.

Check out our evolving flyer that features documentaries from Unicorn Riot, a provocation from artist filmmaker Andrew Wilson and recordings from the previous two events including a conversation with director Andrea Luka Zimmerman

You'll also find links to register for the final two events - sign up to join the conversation!

Visited today and found the exhibition Small Town Inertia powerful, very emotive, thought provoking, and so sad. Definitely makes us re evaluate what should be important in our society and how those in power have failed the most vulnerable. Something everyone should see and reflect on.

Amazing hearing ex miners in Easington talking on Radio 4's 'The Arts of Life' about the positive impact on them of learning how to take photographs and engaging in other artistic activity. :)
Hello, will be visiting Newcastle weekend of 21st - 23rd July & wanted to find out if you will have any exhibitions on then, as I see that Sirkka Liisa Konttinen will have finished. Many thanks.
