LJMU: 20.6 Photography Exhibition by Henry Woodley
Venue: John Lennon Art and Design Building
Times: 08:00 - 17:30
Tuesday 29 March – Friday 1 April 2016, 08.00 – 17.30
20.6 is a four-day long exhibition presenting the work of local photographer Henry Woodley.
The photographs on display were taken in January 2016 when the artist visited Calais, which is home to one of the largest refugee camps in Europe.
This camp is only a mere 20.6 miles away from the cliffs of Dover in South East England. This is the final destination for the thousands of refugees that inhabit the camp in Calais in the hope of seeking asylum in the UK.
This exhibition aims to shed light on the current refugee crisis that is currently happening across Europe. Woodley’s work explores the day to day lives of the people who live within the make-shift camp that is “The Jungle”.
For the duration of the exhibition it will be possible for visitors to donate to the charity BuildinCalais to support the construction of shelters in replacement of tents.
The exhibition, which is curated by Holly Christopher, will take place in the Public Exhibition Space located on the lower ground floor of the John Lennon Art & Design Building.
Date and times – 29th March – 1st April 2016, 8:00 – 17:30
Location – Public Exhibition Space, located on the lower ground floor of the John Lennon Art and Design Building, 2 Duckinfield Street, Liverpool, L3 5RD.
