We are very pleased to announce that the new exhibition at Tate Britain entitled After Industry: Communities in Northern England 1960s – 1980s is now open! Several works by Shirley Baker are exhibited, along with several other photographers working on a similar theme.
The exhibition is part of the Spotlights collection: a regularly changing in-depth display featuring specific artists or subject matter. The work is on show as part of the Permanent Collection and is free to view.
The Tate explains: “These image-makers attempted to create compassionate records of their subjects lives in a manner only an insider can. Many of them set out to challenge stereotypical narratives and create images that could act as a catalyst for social change.”
After Industry: Communities in Northern England 1960s – 1980s will be on show for about eight months.
