The political tradition of the pamphlet goes back centuries. The radical, simple format and DIY approach of the pamphlet, has been of long-standing significance for artists, providing alternative platforms for intervention and provocation.

Focusing on the pamphlet as a form of material culture, this exhibition curated by Gillian Whiteley will explore the local, private and public collections of pamphlets, their visual rhetoric, materiality, reproducibility and the ways in which they lend themselves to topicality.

Join us for the Exhibition Opening with a special performance / reading by artist Patrick Goddard: Friday 26 May, 6 – 7.30pm 

27 May – 24 June: Open daily (Tues – Sat, 10am – 4.30pm)
