Details

With far right parties and hate crimes on the rise, civil liberties and minority rights seem more at risk today than we could have imagined. In these turbulent times, Hope is Strong explores the power of art to question the world we live in.

See work by one of the world’s foremost politically motivated artists, Ai Weiwei, alongside Jeremy Deller's The Battle of Orgreave Archive (An Injury to One is an Injury to All), chronicling the confrontations between police and striking miners in South Yorkshire.

Hope is Strong will also feature work by Conroy/Sanderson, Ashley Cook, Kate Davis, Ruth Ewan, Jamie Fitzpatrick flyingleaps, Mona Hatoum, Sharon Kivland, Goshka Macuga, Ciara Phillips, Keith Piper, Olivia Plender, Hester Reeve, and Artur Zmijewski.
