Hoylake-based photographer and artist Colin McPherson (website) has announced the launch of the A41 Project:
I am delighted to announce that the first exhibition of the ‘A41 Project’ will open at The Public in West Bromwich on Wednesday 27th February, 2013. The show will feature the work that I have made over the last year which seeks to use photographic images to define issues around inequality in our society. Consisting of 25 large-scale ‘social landscapes’, the work takes as its template one of England’s major trunk roads: theA41, which runs from London all the way to Merseyside, its route taking in urban and rural, historic and modern and rich and poor areas alike. The project, which is supported by Arts Council England and is being delivered in partnership with The Equality Trust, will also feature work made by participatory groups based along the road. Further exhibitions are planned for London, Milton Keynes and the Williamson Art Gallery in Birkenhead. For up-to-date information, please visit the ‘A41 Project’ Facebook page. The exhibition runs until 6th May, 2013.
