This show represents the climax of a relationship between Ikon Gallery and photo and video artist Beat Streuli that has lasted for more than a decade.

Known for his series of ‘street portraits’, the artist has found in the City of Birmingham a rich seam of subject matter. He has contributed to several group shows and off-site projects with work made locally, memorably mounting a 27-metre billboard on the city’s Bullring shopping centre bearing photographs of local secondary school students.

Now the gallery is giving up its entire first floor to Streuli. Alongside video and digital projections, the space will be wallpapered with oversize reproductions of street portraits from cities all over the world.
