Co-curated by Lou Stoppard and Adam Murray, North explores the way the region is depicted, constructed and celebrated in select photographs, artworks and fashion collections. The show brings together collective visions of the North, unpicking the tropes and themes that appear regularly in design and media and takes into account the rich cultural history of the region.
In partnership with Open Eye Gallery, Redeye presents photographic artist Vesta Hex, as she shares a body of research that explores the ways we consider, create and consume photography in the UK compared with Japan.
