Community contributions for exhibition on the changing city of Preston

Artists Ian Nesbitt and Ruth Levene will be talking to people, providing information and taking submissions in person at:

Preston Market, Thursday 26 April 9.00am – 3.00pm
Harris Museum and Art Gallery (café), Saturday 5 May 10.00am – 4.00pm

In conjunction with In Certain Places artists Ian Nesbitt and Ruth Levene are staging a community exhibition about Preston and are inviting members of the public to contribute. Like all cities, Preston is growing and changing fast, particularly on its outskirts. Ian and Ruth are inviting residents of Preston and its surrounding villages to take part in an exhibition about how the outskirts of Preston and the landscape around the city is changing or has changed in the past. Exhibition entries might take the form of drawings, paintings, objects, artefacts, newspaper cuttings, voice recordings or interviews.

Submissions should record in some way parts of the local environment that are changing. It could be a view from a window that will soon change, a bird species not seen any more, a road that was built in your lifetime, some facts about a local neighbourhood, or the wider Preston area. It doesn’t have to be big or ‘important’, neither does it have to be ‘a fantastic work of art’. The more diverse the better, so don’t be shy! A description (up to 50 words) about what is being submitted and why will also be required.

Get in touch if you have something that you think might be too big and Ian and Ruth will see what they can do.

The exhibition will take place in the week of 14th May in Preston.
