|About SPAM Elizabeth Upper, Curator
This is a degree show with
a difference. Unlike the many others in London, these graduating MA students
are largely professional photographers and this exhibition is independently
and professionally curated, as the calibre of the work demands. Reflecting
this distinction, SPAM is an inversion of the title of the course it concludes:
the University of Westminster's MA in Photographic Studies. The diversity
of highly developed personal styles and theoretical approaches, as well
as the surprising range of media, attest to the strength of this programme
and demonstrate why it remains the strongest in the UK.
Elizabeth Upper is an independent exhibition curator. She began curating
while completing an MA in the History of Art at the Courtauld Institute
in 2005, which she came to from a background in gallery management. Having
lived in Texas, Paris and Berlin, she is now based in London.
