Humber Street Gallery is pleased to present Enjoy Civic Life, an exhibition of new work by Leo Fitzmaurice. Logos and signs are reworked and repurposed as an exploration into our relationship with branding, identity, architecture, and the history of objects.
The artist will focus on the way these image-word-symbols have lives alongside ours – altering and adapting, like us, to the changing world around us.
Through a mixture of installation, sculpture and video, Fitzmaurice has responded to a collection of mounted plaques on display in Hull’s Guildhall, which have been produced by local company GK Beaulah & Co Ltd since 1939.
Due to current Covid-19 rules regarding Social Distancing, booking is a required in advance.
Humber Street Gallery is a contemporary art space nestled in the heart of the city’s Fruit Market cultural quarter. Housed in a former fruit warehouse, the gallery will showcase the best in contemporary visual arts from the shocking to the sublime. The gallery seeks to generate debate, push boundaries, encourage new ways of thinking and inspire with a packed programme designed to appeal to those both familiar and not so familiar with the arts.
