Graphic design isn't just about making pretty posters, as shown by the new It's Not Very Nice That exhibition uncovering the political side of design.

Political upheaval

Art and design have long been used as vehicles for taboo subjects, but The Lighthouse has yet to make such a statement in this form of media until now.

It's Not Very Nice That is the new exhibition at The Lighthouse that combines politics and art. Contemporary designers will be creating evocative pieces of work for the masses to mull over, but it is as much a forum for free speech on the politics of the contemporary world as it is art.

It's Not Very Nice That has it's own hashtag on Twitter, and the organisers behind this exhibition are inviting opinions from every direction. They are creating a buzz, and it seems everyone wants to get involved.

To join the discussion you can visit The Lighthouse and pop into Gallery One where the work by the designers will be hung, but for a more hands-on approach ask in the gallery, or see the It's Not Very Nice That website for an updated list of forthcoming events - all of which are free.
