‘The Great Divide’
28 September - 28 October
Politics is dividing people all over the world. The political climate is at breaking point. People are angry. Artists are channelling these feelings and using their craft to make work in protest and reaction to these turbulent times.
‘The Great Divide’ is a platform to showcase artworks by over 60 artists from across the globe and will bring the work of prominent and emerging street artists together in a gallery setting. The exhibition will look at how artists are responding to current political, environmental and economic issues and asks if we can come back together in the face of division. The exhibition will be accompanied by a series of free events:
Thursday 27 September, 6-9pm: Launch Event with Hip-Hip performances from Inner Peace Records and live graffiti demos.
Friday 5 October, 7pm: ‘The Great Divide’ Performance Art Assembly.
Friday 26 October, 7pm: ‘Popcorn, Beer and Politics’ Film night and Artist Talk.
Exhibition Open: Thursdays – Sundays, 12-6pm
