Main Gallery - 30 Years On – Chernobyl Exposed
The 26:86 Collective includes both established and emerging artists and designers who travelled to Kiev and Chernobyl, Ukraine during the 30th anniversary year of the world’s biggest and most devastating nuclear disaster. Exhibited works were produced in response to the trip highlighting weighty and significant issues around nuclear energy within our communities today. A multi disciplined exhibition that includes graphic, illustrative, textile, fine art and photographic responses. The work conjointly explores issues surrounding the events of 26th April 1986, including the societal collective memory relating to the sudden evacuation of Pripyat, displacement trauma, loss and the interpretation of personal memories.
