Ikon Traces Walking Tour

Sunday 27 July 2014

£5 per person, payable in advance

Photo walk with Pete Ashton

Starting in an octagonal kiosk in the Bull Ring in 1965 the Ikon Gallery has had five permanent venues in Birmingham city centre. As part of the Ikon Traces season, artist Pete Ashton asks “do these locations still have residual art-power?”

“Armed with key examples of visual art from Ikon’s history and channeling the ghosts of past venues, we will tune our eyes and look at the city through this filter. Then, with our aesthetic neurons firing, we’ll take photographs, creating new artworks from the vibrations of the old”. Pete Ashton

This is a lighthearted and fun walk open to everyone with a camera and a willingness to look at the city in new ways.

Meeting Point: 2pm Nelson statue in the Bullring, Spiceal Street, Birmingham
