Travelling Gallery : Displaced

Sat 8 Jun

The Travelling Gallery

Travelling Gallery’s Spring 2019 exhibition, Displaced, will explore how artists are responding to global migration and the refugee crisis now. With ongoing international conflicts and the continued displacement of human beings, artists are asking us to reflect on a range of current, challenging concerns around the world, how these impact on the daily lives of others and relate to issues closer to home.

Artists Halil Altindere, Brendan Bannon, Broomberg and Chanarin, Elizabeth Kwant and Alberta Whittle focus on crisis abroad but also shine a light on Europe and our own country; charting journeys and often using transport, architecture, and landscape alongside human experience.
