Can artists help decode what’s going on?
11 timely and powerful artworks respond to the theme ‘The State We’re In’ on thousands of billboards and outdoor digital screens across the four nations of the UK.
The exhibition ‘The State We’re In’ is open in towns and cities, large and small, across our four nations, freely available to millions of people for 4 weeks: from London to Glasgow to Manchester, Southampton and Cardiff.
Artworks were selected from almost 1,300 works submitted to our global, public open call. The Gallery also commissioned four new artworks. The works are created in diverse mediums including photography, illustration, oil painting, collage and digital printing.
Our mission is to make art accessible through bold and unafraid exhibitions that appear as part of people’s daily lives.
*The term Out-of-Home refers to any visual advertising media found outside of the home, including on-street billboards, digital screens, bus-shelters and train stations.
'The State We're In' has hit billboards and digital screens all across the UK
The Gallery is for everyone
Each biannual Gallery season sets out to nurture and develop artists at all levels; giving them a platform and guidance on producing art in the public realm.
Season 2 sees the addition of a Learning and Participation programme working with young people across the UK. We’ve been lucky enough to work with young people throughout Northern Ireland and Wales.
The programme highlights the power of art in public space and provides inspiration and guidance for creating your own impactful public artwork.
