Kick Down the Barriers Exhibition

Blackburn Museum is proud to present the Kick Down the Barriers exhibition, a culmination of a year-long project seeing 8 artists and 10 writers working in and with communities of Blackburn. The project has been working to redefine the labels of ‘segregation’ and ‘division’ that have been put onto Blackburn by national press and media channels.

The exhibition spans six of the galleries inside the museum, and includes poetry, performance, sculpture, video, painting, collage, photography and installation work.

Artists featured are:

Karen Mathison and her display of photography from Mill Hill & Ewood
Saima Hussain and her display of streetscape paintings from Audley Range
Paul Nataraj and his display of podcasts from Whalley Range
Craig Easton and Abdul Aziz Hafiz with their display of photography and words from Bank Top
William Titley and his work responding to the archives of Blackburn Museum.
Jamie Holman and Sana Maulvi and their letter reading performance
Mark Ward and his poetry reading performance
Cath Ford and her display of 270 school children’s collage self portraits from eight different Blackburn primary schools

Blackburn Museum is open every Wednesday to Saturday between 12:00 – 4:45pm.
