Youth Rising in the UK 1981-2021
The ground floor gallery features works by 43 student photographers from Sunderland University and the University of West England, Bristol created between 2019 and 2021.
‘In drawing together a spectrum of stories from across the UK this extensive exhibition seeks to question, imagine and value what it means to be a young person today. A generation that must navigate the legacy of the Covid-19 pandemic, global campaigns for racial justice, and unparalleled ability to represent themselves in the online space. They are forging futures and building on the legacy of those who came before them. Photographs are a critical platform to be seen, heard and remembered.’
Exhibition curator, Liz Hingley.
