Williamson Gallery: The A41 Project – Colin McPherson

A41 Project - Visualising Inequality by Colin McPherson26 October – TBC


An exhibition of photographs will depict Britain’s growing poverty gap through a series of images made during a year-long journey on the A41 trunk road which runs from London to Birkenhead.

The A41 Project features photographs by Wirral-based artist Colin McPherson taken as he travelled the length of the road, passing through some of the wealthiest and some of the most deprived areas of England. In a series of large-scale contemporary landscapes, the project poses questions about issues around the wealth gap and is one artist’s response to the issue of inequality in our society today. The exhibition is supported by campaigning organisation The Equality Trust and funded by the Arts Council England.

The images have been created by Colin McPherson with separate contributions by groups of local people living on or near the A41 in Merseyside, West Midlands, Milton Keynes and London. The Merseyside group of photographers will show their work simultaneously at the Williamson.
