Richard Lees – Print Exhibition

Richard Lees Exhibition – August-September 2018

HIP Gallery, Princes Quay, Hull.

POSTER-768x1018This collage says a lot about my work and beliefs as a socialist printmaker. Recruiting and reworking images from revolutionary artists – Dave King, German Expressionists, John Heartfield, Atelier Populaire – I put them back on the front line in the design work I did for Hull Rock Against Racism.

AgitProp is as much about questioning culture as it is about direct campaigning. My new stuff is inspired by other dissidents, writers and artists, like  Hannah Arendt, Mary McCarthy and Franz Masereel, whose unique visions help shape the political, literary and pictorial elements in my prints.

I’m a teacher, print-maker, writer and trade unionist.

Exhibition

Writing Dangerously focuses on two literary giants, Mary McCarthy and Arundhati Roy, who each showed the courage of their beliefs by going to front-line war zones – Vietnam for McCarthy and central India for Roy – to find the truth buried beneath the lies and propaganda, and to write honestly about the realities they discovered.

Roy’s Walking With the Comrades (2011) and McCarthy’s Seventeenth Degree (1974) powerfully represent communities fighting back against the brutal onslaught of state war machines and the destruction of natural resources. For both the North Vietnamese and the Naxalites in central India, defending their lands against invasions and degradation is the root of their political struggle; and I hope that Writing Dangerously visually represents this deeply felt, communal connection to the lands they fight to protect.

Hull Independent Photography Gallery AKA HIP Gallery on level 1 of Princes Quay. Has an exceptional new exhibition of photographs from Hull in the early 1980’s. The photographs were shot in West Hull, mainly around Hessle Rd & Woodcock Street by Russell Boyce. At the time Russell was a Hull art student, making the first works of what would become a life-long, worldwide, photographic career. His first prints were displayed in Bob Carvers fish & chip shop. He is now the Middle East and Africa Editor for Reuters Pictures.

“I am delighted to know that after over 30 years, the photographs I shot in Hull can be enjoyed by the community who made them so special, in Hull Independent Photography Gallery”

The exhibition includes photographs from Russell’s earliest photo projects including Living With Blindness, Star & Garter, Stray Dogs & Kandy de Barry. Some photographs were taken when Russell joined a young George Norris on his horse-drawn cart. George has co-curated the exhibition with Alan Raw of HIP Gallery and Russell has named the show after the words George would call as he lead his cart around the West Hull houses; Battery, Boiler, Bike Frame, Lumber, Rag Bone.

The exhibition starts on Wednesday 23rd May 6.30pm and is then open 12-5 Tuesday to Saturday & 12-4 on Sundays until Sunday 29th July. Free entry.
