Reflections on the Great War through artworks inspired by Staffordshire collections
Manchester School of Art researchers Stephen Dixon and Johnny Magee have co-curated a major new exhibition with the Staffordshire Great War museum consortium as an artistic response to their collections of First World War artefacts, documents and archives.
The exhibition called Resonance features new ceramic installations, photography and film. The works reflect on the ways in which the Great War affected the Staffordshire home front examining themes of absence, loss, heroism and shared humanity.
Resonance opens on March 9 at the Museum of Cannock Chase in Hednesford where it continues to be shown until April 26 before touring six other Staffordshire museums presenting a rolling programme of new works.
Resonance is supported by the Staffordshire Great War Consortium, Heritage Lottery, The Arts Council England, Manchester Metropolitan University, WLCT and Cannock Chase Council.
