Pop-up exhibition organised by Dr Cathy Elliott

Publication date:

George Sidney Shepherd

We are surrounded every day by images of poverty on charity adverts, in newspapers and on TV. But has poverty always been depicted in the same way or have representations of poverty changed over time? How have artists responded to themes of poverty, hunger and disadvantage? Do images of poverty constitute a genre and how has the genre of poverty images evolved and been contested by artists? Can we respond more critically to contemporary poverty imagery if we understand its history and the range of ways poverty has been depicted in the past? These are questions addressed by a pop-up exhibition on Wednesday 2 November organised by Cathy Elliott of the School of Public Policy and George Richards of the UCL Art Museum using UCL's own collection of art works. The exhibition will be open all day and learning materials will be provided. The exhibition is a compulsory part of Cathy's International Development and Public Policy undergraduate module at SPP, but is open to all. Please come and look round. (And tell Cathy what you thought.)
