How Does History Make Us Change?

Major historical events can bring radical changes to society, but they also affect us on a personal level. The Journal exhibition at the Institute for Contemporary Art has invited five artists to explore the gradual social changes in their work that have come about from unusual circumstances. These include incidents such as the 2011 earthquake in Japan and the residual post-invasion environment in Iraq.

This loose theme allows the artists to be very free in their interpretation, providing an eclectic mix of photography, installations and film for visitors to view. Open until the 7th September, entry is 1 with day membership.

A number of talk and film screenings will run in conjunction with exhibition:
