GIVING VOICE: The Art of Dissent

8 January - 20 February 2016

GIVING VOICE:  The Art of Dissent presents artists' opinions on pressing social and political issues facing the world today.  This powerful exhibition sheds light on a global state of distress, from major economic crisis, raging wars, pollution and climate change through to religious prejudice and racism.  Audiences are moved to consider the complexities of issues that can often be portrayed in simplistic terms.  Artists featured in this exhibition which is curated by, Dr Yvonne Rees-Pagh, include Cigdem Aydemir, James Barker, Richard Bell, Paul Hoffie, Locust Jones, Megan Keating, Michael Reed and Khaled Subsabi.
