Quentin Budworth’s Hullywood Icons print exhibition, hosted by Hull International Photography Gallery and curated by Alan Raw.

The brainchild of lens-based artist Quentin Budworth, Hullywood Icons has recreated iconic moments from Hollywood films with the people of Hull and the East Riding. The still images will be exhibited prominently throughout the city as projections featured in the City of Culture opening event, in the suburbs of Hull and in Beverley and Bridlington in early January 2017.

“It started with a simple notion and a play on words: what if Hull was really Hollywood and the people of Hull were film stars? We’d have our own Hollywood but in Hull, Hullywood! I had been thinking about using Hull as a movie set and playground for making work both as a creative space but also as an exhibiting space for a long time.

I wanted to create a project and body of work that involved the people of Hull as participants and collaborators in a playful way whilst allowing me to create photographs that people would enjoy looking at and engage with. The people of Hull and East Yorkshire have really taken Hullywood to their hearts and their enthusiasm, wit and creativity has been truly amazing.” – Quentin Budworth

Please note: the HIP Gallery is open 12pm-4pm on Sundays.
