Belfast Exposed Futures Artist – Ben Malcolmson

Ben Malcolmson (b.1999) is an emerging photographer born and based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. He has worked with Belfast Exposed, and participated in many programmes, since the age of 10. From a young age, Malcolmson participated in workshops with Belfast Exposed, and followed that by taking part in Belfast Exposed’s ‘Summer Scheme’ and ‘Young Futures’ programmes, and supported the organisation through volunteering in the gallery and assisting in recent programmes for younger people.

Ben is currently studying a BA Photography with Video degree at Ulster University, and was recently awarded the opportunity to join the photography programme at Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK) as part of Erasmus for 2019 and 2020. He was recently nominated by Belfast Exposed and awarded the Arab British Centre residency ‘Making Marks’.

Belfast Exposed continue to work with Ben Malcolmson, who recently joined our ‘Futures Artists’ programme and produced a solo exhibition ‘Murmur‘ that responded to his experience as a participant in the residency. Ben is an emerging artist who has participated and progressed throughout each of the ‘Summer Scheme’, ‘Young Futures’ and ‘Futures Artists’ programmes. The video above encapsulates that journey.
