Middlesbrough’s celebrated artist-led independent gallery, The House of Blah Blah, will welcome two new exhibitions and a special live gig this month. Priding themselves on offering cutting-edge events and exhibitions featuring underground artists, their programme for August presents photographic excellence and expansive soundscapes.

Beginning on Thursday 6th August (and running until Thursday 10th September), three photographers will exhibit their work in the gallery’s warehouse space. Eloise Parry, who has been recognised as one of the UK’s most exciting young photographers, will return to her hometown to exhibit her work which varies from shoots for Wonderland Magazine, her work shooting with Kanye West’s stylist and with fashion designer to Rhianna and fellow Teessider Claire Barrow. Also taking part in the exhibition is Anthony Chambers, whose photography attempts to understand the complexities of urban spaces; and Harry Garrens, who explores fashion and culture rooted in architecture.

Later in in the month, with a retrospective exhibition running from Thursday 27th August until Thursday 8th October, Mitchel Proctor’s social documentary photography comes under the microscope, as the Berlin-based photographer’s work looks at concepts drawn from the alienation of travel and the photographers’ role as a displaced voyeur.

If all this wasn’t enough, the third instalment of promotions racket Radio Blah Blah returns with a corker of a line-up on Friday 21st August featuring the spectral shoegaze of High Tide 15:47, post-punkers Isles and noisy local youngsters Melvern.

The House of Blah Blah is located at Exchange Square, Middlesbrough.
