One hundred years after the Representation of the People Act which extended voting rights to some women, issues of gender, race, access and inclusivity are back at the centre of public debate and turbulent global politics have reinvigorated engagement, fuelled participation and normalised dissent.

Taking the ideas of representation – and misrepresentation – as a starting point, this exhibition brings together artists, designers and creative practitioners who challenge established norms, offer alternative perspectives and seek to bring about change. 

This exhibition is originated by Graphic Communication Design programme, with participation from Art, Culture & Enterprise and Drama and Performance programmes.
