We're incredibly proud to announce our curatorial involvement in F I F T E E N -
A photographic journey through the lens of 15-year-olds in some of the world's toughest places.
Hosted by international children's charity Street Child
, F I F T E E N is a photography exhibition showcasing a collection of raw and thought-provoking images captured by teenagers in Bangladesh, Nepal, Nigeria, Uganda and Ukraine. Step inside their world on their own terms.
From active conflict zones and refugee camps to remote and marginalised communities, this exhibition explores what it means to be 15 years old in drastically different contexts.
Street Child is one of the world's fastest-growing international children's charities, established in 2008. Street Child works to ensure children are safe, in school and learning, especially in low resource environments and emergencies.
Through facilitating workshops and providing the teenagers an opportunity to express themselves through photography, Street Child is helping empower young people in conflict zones to tell their own stories, rebalancing the scale of representation.
It has been a privilege for our team to curate an exhibition that showcases the creativity and resilience of this group of incredible young people. At Artiq, we are firm believers in the power of art to tell impactful stories and foster community; F I F T E E N is a perfect example of this.
The exhibition is open to the public from 18 – 29 October 2023 at gallery@oxo, located in the Oxo Tower on London's South Bank riverside walkway.
