We are delighted to start the New Year with some welcome news – Shirley Baker’s work has been selected as part of an exciting new exhibition taking place at Liverpool’s Open Eye Gallery. Entitled North: Identity, Photography, Fashion, the multi-media show opens on 6th January. Five of Shirley Baker’s pieces will be included.
Co-curated by Lou Stoppard and Adam Murray, North explores the way the region is depicted, constructed and celebrated in select photographs, artwork and fashion collections. The show brings together collective visions of the North, unpicking the tropes and themes that appear regularly in design and media and takes into account the rich cultural history of the region.This exhibition features several artists and includes a selection of photographs by Shirley Baker alongside work from some of fashion’s most notable image makers.
