The purpose of this project was to explore perceptions of the city on a global scale. Artists were invited to reflect current cultural, social and political subjects through engagements with the built environment in which they live and / or work. The exhibition was the result of an open call for submissions, and works were received from artists working in Ireland, Sweden, UK, Portugal, Lithuania,Denmark, Italy, Sweden, USA, Austria, Israel, Romania, Germany, and Qatar. A mini conference took place alongside the exhibition at Hanover Project in Preston, where themes central to the exhibition concept were presented. Speakers included (in order of appearance) Dr. Mat Gregory, Elaine Speight (In Certain Places), Victoria Lucas, John Aitken and Jane Brake (IUD), and keynote speakers Heidi Hove and Jonn Herschend (The Deadpan Exchange).
The exhibition and events were co-ordinated by Victoria Lucas at Hanover Project, Hanover Building, Bhailok Street, University of Central Lancashire, Preston, PR1 2HE
