Artist Tour of Until It Looks Like This Exhibition at People’s History Museum (PHM), City Centre 16 July 2022 Entrance is free — Visit now

This summer the People’s History Museum is hosting an art show that exhibits the work of twelve studio artists from Venture Arts. Until It Looks Like This incorporates textiles, print, installation, photography and ceramics to create a collection of individual perspectives. Join Micheal Nash for a guided artist tour of the exhibition and a personal view into the work.

further personal insight into the pieces on display and an intriguing perspective on working within a sustainable artistic practice

Michael’s own work features in the exhibition alongside his fellow studio residents. His artistic aesthetic revolves around the politics of waste and how objects others discard affect our environment. His sculpture work repurposes and recycles wasted objects and using them to convey new meanings and make political comments. With this in mind, you can be sure his tour will give you further personal insight into the pieces on display and a look into how sustainability informs his own practice.

part of the programme focusing on the history of disabled people’s rights and activism

The exhibition is part of the People’s History Museum’s wider programme focusing on the history of disabled people’s rights and activism. Venture Arts is an organisation that supports learning disabled and neurodivergent artists who have active roles in the cultural sector.
