Exhibition: L— A City Through Its People

5 November - 7 March 2021

Due to current government guidelines put in place to prevent the spread of Covid-19, this exhibition will not immediately be open to the public. A virtual reality version of the exhibition will be available online shortly after the exhibition’s opening date. Sign up to our newsletter for updates.

See our Covid-19 update for more information.

L— A City Through Its People brings together three distinct exhibitions, the combined archives of which cover a time period of Liverpool from the 1950s to the present day. Spanning evolutions in industry, society, and leisure at a time of rapid change and challenge, they share unique approaches and perspectives in telling a story about Liverpool, its people, and the ideals that lend the city charm and a distinct personality. 

L A City Through Its People at Open Eye Gallery, Peggy by Emma Case, RED

RED by Emma Case introduces us to the pride and glory of being part of the Liverpool football family, featuring portraits, images, interviews and original memorabilia donated by the football fans, expressing their generosity and spirit.

Scottie Press, Britain’s longest running community newspaper and champion of people’s voices, displays an archive of original photographs donated by local residents or photographed by Scottie Press photographers. Scottie Press will celebrate its 50th anniversary in February 2021, and this display follows Liverpool through the ages, observing the city through the lens of visual activism and grassroots journalism. 

Tell It Like It Is is a collaborative project between photographer Ian Clegg and writer Laura Robertson. The image-text relationship ruminates on the shifting nature of the city, consisting of photographs that remained as negatives for forty years, introducing a collaborative perspective on the city from two Liverpool residents and creative practitioners. 

Through these archival projects, we can see that the photographs we choose to keep or share with others reveal the ideas that we value, celebrating the creativity and communities that are the beating heart of the city.
