Hoylake-based photographer and artist Colin McPhersonÂ (website) has announced the launch of the A41 Project:
I am delighted to announce that the first exhibitionÂ of the ‘A41 Project’Â will open atÂ The Public in West BromwichÂ 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 byÂ Arts Council EnglandÂ and is being delivered in partnership withÂ 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 theÂ ‘A41 Project’ Facebook page. The exhibition runs until 6th May, 2013.
