Artists Announced for Next Stop: City Bus

Having been inundated with applications to our recent Open Call for a photographer and a poet for Next Stop: City Bus; the K6 Gallery team have now sifted through and reviewed over 90 project proposals.

We are delighted to announce the successful artists are: photographer, Toby Glanville and poet, Ella Frears.

Both Toby and Ella put in extremely strong applications. We were blown away by the quality of their work and the level of experience they were able to offer, along with their approaches to the project as outlined in imaginative proposals.

Toby Glanville is an established photographer, well known for his portraiture. He has been published extensively, including for the Observer, The Sunday Times, Vogue, Guardian Weekend, and the British Journal of Photography. His work can be found in the collections of the British Museum, National Portrait Gallery, and the V&A.

Ella Frears is a writer, poet and visual artist. She’s completed poetry residencies at Tate St Ives, and nearby at SPUD’s Observatory Residency at Buckler’s Hard. She has recently been shortlisted for the Outspoken Poetry Prize 2018 and the Manchester Poetry Prize 2017.

Both Toby and Ella will use the next few months to ride the number 17 Bluestar bus whilst creating new work in response to their journeys. The outcomes will then be exhibited on the buses, alongside an exhibition of the work produced by Carol Ann Duffy and Nancy Honey for the original Citybus project at K6 Gallery to mark its 25th Anniversary.

The exhibitions will launch on 1st December and have been made possible thanks to funding from Arts Council England.
