The Fading City Exhibition

Loading Events
  • This event has passed.

A joint exhibition of new work by Jemma Gunning and Tracey Thorne opens on the 2 March 2020 at The Hive Gallery.

The Fading City is inspired by the textures and typography of buildings that surround us, and calls on us to immerse ourselves in a world that might otherwise slip by. Both artists have produced new works for the exhibition using different printmaking techniques to draw out the character and souls of the buildings.

Exhibition Programme

Open daily from Monday 2 March to Saturday 14 March 2020.

Monday 2 March, 4pm-8pm open to the public

Opening times weekends 12-4pm

Opening times weekday – 8am-3.30pm

About the Artists

Jemma Gunning is a printmaker based in Bristol and has produced new work for the exhibition commissioned by the Jewellery Quarter Townscape Heritage project. For her commission Jemma visited two derelict buildings, Alabaster and Wilson and Unity Works to record their transient states, capturing our fading heritage. The use of intaglio and mono-printing processes resonate with the decaying structures she has recorded, preserving memories and documenting these extraordinary spaces.

Tracey Thorne is based in Birmingham and uses photography to explore the ephemeral painted walls found on the streets. The exhibition showcases ten screen-prints by Tracey Thorne that explore Birmingham’s disappearing faded advertising signs sometimes called ‘ghost signs’ found on buildings in Digbeth and around the Jewellery Quarter.
