Full text not available from this repository.


We are delighted to bring together an exhibition that poses questions about our relationship with the ethical and the political. This exhibition acknowledges the contribution that the community brings to those ideas. Banners from a community workshop in Durham remind us of issues won, lost and forgotten which provide a link between 80's and 90's political activism and the political in the art of Bob and Roberta Smith. The well known artist Bob and Roberta Smith has agreed to show his street banner LOVE or HATE alongside a series of beautiful banners made at Lotte Shankland's community workshop in Durham. Sharron Lea documents political action at the G8 Summit, Gleneagles, 2005. Work consists of a series of photographs taken from within the street protest at Gleneagles. Dick Ward's large-scale cartoon in Gateshead Hospital offers another political story including the Jarrow March. Dick's working drawings are explored alongside a video of this celebrated peoples' mural. Political paintings are also exhibited by Northumbria Graduate Ian Gonczarow presently studying at Goldsmiths College.
