I Welcome

A Magnum Photos exhibition, in association with Amnesty International

This compelling exhibition tells a big story – the Global Refugee Crisis. Three words, encompassing millions and millions of human lives. Each of the powerful, evocative images in this pack allow us to glimpse the individual humans stories that lie behind any refugee crisis.

Mass refuge movements are not new. This exhibition spans 70 years from the massive upheaval and displacement of the Second World War aftermath. Then, as now, photographers were covering the story. and this selection of pictures from the famous Magnum collective of these themes:

  • War and disorder
  • Seeking safety
  • Lives in limbo
  • Walls and fences
  • Sharing responsibility
  • Welcomes

SPACE is pleased to be supporting Bristol Amnesty International and presenting this exhibition ahead of Refugee week.

TOUCHED is a collaborative exhibition that explores the physicality of intimacy in all its forms. It brings together artists who each have their own unique art practice to traverse the idea of what it means to be intimate and how we, as humans, understand that feeling.

This exhibition features multidisciplinary works across the spectrum, including painting, collage and stitch to create an immersive experience for the viewer.

Private View: 6th June (6:30pm- 8pm)
