Take Another Look

Take Another LookAppreciating Durham’s overlooked architecture.

Durham University students studying MA Visual Culture and BA Liberal Arts have curated this online exhibition. Showcasing works from Durham University’s Western Art Collection that depict neglected and overlooked buildings in the Durham area, such as the work of Jo Stanness and her series on brutalist architecture. 

The exhibitions key aim is to develop an appreciation for Durham’s architecture and the communities they are intertwined with, both in history and present day. 

This will be achieved through encouraging audiences to go and visit the displayed sites for themselves as part of their own summer in the city, and by working with local community groups such as The Friends of Kepier Woods group, which has the support of numerous local groups in a campaign to reopen the historic Belmont viaduct as a bridgeway and cycleway.

Launches 24 June 2021
