Opening Friday 7 April, 7-9pm
8 April - 24 May 2017
Artist Talk: Saturday 8 April, 1-2pm
What happens when democratic processes express, even produce, social and political divisions? How are the outcomes of such processes – sometimes only narrowly won - resisted and critiqued? How moreover, do such processes make use of visual-cultural means to, as the writer Rebecca Solnit puts it: ‘make injury visible’? As a spectacle of resistance, public protest has a long history, but persists as a powerful form of expression in a time of conflict and instant, ‘citizen enabled’ global media. More details.
A Free Bus will run between Belfast and Portadown on the evening of the opening. Leaves Belfast from Golden Thread Gallery at 6.45pm. Returns from Portadown at 9pm.
