Past Events and Exhibitions
In the late 1980s and 90s Sheffield reached a pivotal moment in its history, one which saw it begin a journey of regeneration and transformation into the city we know today. The first steps on that journey were documented by a group of gifted photographers whose work reflected both the hope and hard realities of the time. Today, as major developments in the city see its landscape continuing to evolve, a new exhibition at Weston Park Museum re-presents those original photographs to chronicle a significant turning point for Sheffield and its people.
Cherish is an exhibition looking at our desire to document the familiar and intimate. Curated by Victoria Smith and Ted Holborn, final year Photography students at Manchester School of Art, the exhibition will take place over two days in the Link Gallery. It is the first in a series of curatorial experiments from Photography students at MMU.
An exhibition of photography by Wirral-based photographer Colin McPherson documents the dramatic changes which have taken place in Berlin since the fall of the Berlin Wall in November 1989 will have its premiere later this month in Liverpool to mark the 30th anniversary of those momentous events.
Common Ground is a photographic exhibition that seeks to find the connection between varying personalities, cultures and even opposing ideologies. A call to see the good in another and seek the common ground.
On December 5th, 2015, Storm Desmond hit the North and West of the United Kingdom, smashing rainfall records, and causing widespread flooding and destruction.
