In partnership with The Photographers' Gallery
For the Time Being is a programme of live-photo performances using the social media app Snapchat. Existing only for a few moments, each intervention will question ideas of nostalgia, collective memory and intimacy as they are experienced through digital networks. The project expands the gallery experience on to an intimate, fleeting mobile platform to explore the shifting position of the photographic medium in relation to online image sharing culture. Audiences can engage with the new commissions anywhere in the world on their personal portable devices or visit The Photographers' Gallery to view the work alongside a programme of live events.

This project is one of the Royal College of Art Curating Contemporary Art Shows 2019. MA Curating Contemporary Art (CCA) graduating students will present four final projects in collaboration with leading UK based art organisations including Gasworks, Nottingham Contemporary, The Photographers’ Gallery and Pump House Gallery.
