Save Event: Past and Present Tense

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Group exhibition inspired by George Orwell's quote: "He who controls the present, controls the past. He who controls the past, controls the future."


Art invites us to take a fresh look at historic moments, inspires reflections on our role in the world as well as contemplations on what is yet to come.

This exhibition brings together artists working across a breadth of disciplines and materials who apply the theme of past and present tense to ideas of time and place, change and decay, nostalgia and hope.

Whether informed by personal experience, directly responding to the memories held within the venue's ancient walls, or following more abstract concepts, the works on show provide an interpretation of the world around us, framed by the artists' imagination.

An invitationĀ to take a break from out of control news and political realities.
