Photography Exhibition to Light-up Mansfield Town Centre Again...
First Art will light up Mansfield Town Centre with an illuminated photo exhibition this April and May. The exhibition features award winning and internationally renowned artists who have created new work about the people and places of the area. The work will be displayed outdoors, in Mansfield Market Place, in stunning lightboxes that first came to the town in 2015.
The exhibition is part of a 2-year international touring project, Flâneur – New Urban Narratives, which started its epic journey in Mansfield with First Art’s Portrait lightbox exhibition in 2015. Since then, artists across 13 countries have produced and exhibited locally-focussed work in cities across Europe, including Lisbon, Hamburg and Paris. For 2017, the First Art project has worked in partnership with Format International Photography Festival and of Portugal, to commission new work for exhibition in Derby, as part of FORMAT17, and Mansfield Market Place - a homecoming for the lightboxes.
The exhibition is free and can be viewed at any time, day or night.
