As artist-in-residence at the University of Brighton Design Archives, Gabriel Kuri's intervention As Selected for the Design Centre, London in Brighton's civic spaces moved photography quite literally out of the archive and into the public arena.

Taking as his starting point a pristine black and white image from 1956 of domestic tableware from the Design Council Archive, Kuri's project reflected on the immaculate and unsoiled pictorial aesthetic that was characteristic not only of the Design Council’s post-war photography but also of an era of unbridled enthusiasm for modernity and progress.
