Exhibition launch: Signs of our Time
Thursday 6 December

Join us for the launch of an exhibition celebrating our most recent project, Signs of our Time. Tracing the history of signwriting in Belfast over its venerable history, we’ll be viewing the medium through a lens of class, community and commerce. Project participants will display a range of material gathered and produced over the 12-week programme, including sketches, photographs and examples of handpainted signage that they have produced. Time-lapse film and audio recordings featuring master signpainters will also chart the development, decline and subsequent resurgence of the medium in recent years. Join us for mince pies and liquid refreshment for Late Night Art from 6pm.

You can also follow the project and submit images via Instagram and Twitter. You can read more about the project on the PLACE website here. ​This project is made possible through funding from Heritage Lottery Fund and support from Ulster University.
