It’s Not Very Nice That 21 Feb – 27 Apr
Gallery One

With new ways of being political along with new media
 and modes of production at their disposal, contemporary designers navigate a space of increasing social unrest which has seen the eruption of civil insurrection in the UK, the revolutionary fervour of the Arab Spring and the furore following the Wikileaks revelations. The exhibition will examine the resurgence of political practice among designers since the mid 2000s and will consider their motifs and motivations, exploring the potential problems and possibilities of this diverse set of experiments.

The exhibition will be augmented with a number of talks and workshops, examining, through direct action and open discussion, some of these pertinent topics.
