Travelling gallery returning to WHALE

The Travelling Gallery will be returning to the WHALE Arts Centre next week on Friday 8 March 2019 from 10.00am – 4.30pm with exhibition ‘Displaced.

Travelling Gallery’s Spring 2019 exhibition, Displaced, will explore how artists and creative industries are responding to global migration now. With ongoing international conflicts and the continued displacement of human beings we are questioning how we view, understand, and represent refugees. Can artists give a voice to those who don’t have one?

The group show will include a wide range of creatives from different disciplines working in collaboration with International aid organisations and charities. These include American photojournalist Brendon Bannon who worked with the United Nations Refugee Agency and Syrian refugee children to allow them to document their own lives. Other work includes film, architecture and illustration.

The exhibition includes photography, printmaking, film and painting from artists Halil Altindere, Brendon Bannon, Broomberg and Chanarin, Elizabeth Kwant and Alberta Whittle.

The Travelling Gallery, a custom-built, mobile, contemporary art space inside a big bus, which brings high quality contemporary art exhibitions and events to schools and communities throughout Scotland
