Exhibitions

Without Walls - until 30 August

Without Walls is an exhibition of work, including drawing, painting, photography, printmaking and short films, by around thirty people who are or have been homeless.

Although not a themed exhibition, each exhibitor's work is to some extent about how art has mediated their experience of homelessness. Some have used art making as a way to develop skills that give their lives a new creative focus. Others have found an outlet to address difficult or painful events or experiences.
