Exhibition

The Visions of Histories: Exploring the heritage of the Cultural Quarter exhibition showcases our findings and creative interpretations of the intriguing history of Leicester’s Cultural Quarter.

On display are artworks (prints, drawings, paintings and sculpture), photographs, and The Mosaic Remains book of poetry.

The exhibition features copies of a selection of the archives that we used in our research. In the gallery, visitors can access online historical material via the St George’s App on an iPad.

Visitors can hear our reminisces on a listening post. You can also add your own reminisces to our giant Cultural Quarter map.

 
The exhibition was launched at the West End Gallery in Leicester, on the 14th October.

Comments so far about the exhibition, include:

“Very colourful pieces of art that show the history of Leicester. Very interesting to view. Some of the places I walk past everyday and didn’t know they were there, as either I didn’t see them or just walked past.”

“Fantastic show. Very insightful.”

Visions of Histories runs until the 29th October, 2015 at the West End Gallery, 107 Highcross St, Leicester, LE1 4PH.
