This group exhibition presents artists whose work explores aspects of the society they live in – politics, culture, economy, living conditions and social structures.

Included are copies of information from the Orwell Archive, University College of London, relating to George Orwell’s 1937 publication “The Road To Wigan Pier” which, commissioned by Victor Gollancz and published by the Left Book Club, documented poverty in the north east of England before the Second World War.
