Criterion Theatre

Unmute Art Exhibition
22nd March from 12:00 to 19:00
In the Auditorium and Bar

Un:mute. An Art Exhibition, March 21st 5-9pm and March 22nd 12-7pm.

Our Artistic Director Anne-marie Greene in her day job is Professor at the University of York and is involved in a research project exploring the theatrical output, activities and organisational practices over 40 years of the women-only theatre company Clean Break, which works with women and girls with experience of the criminal justice system.

The project has involved artist-in residence Laura Dean who lives in Earlsdon and the Criterion is lucky enough to be hosting an exhibition of images, soundscapes and visual artefacts which are her response to the research.

The exhibition also sees the launch of Clean Break’s Digital Timeline.

On March 21st we will be hosting a launch event, so please do join us from 5pm with discussions starting at 6pm. Hear from members of the research project team and Anna Herrman, Joint Artistic Director of Clean Break, talking about the evolution of the research project and the way that the involvement of a visual artist has transformed and enriched our understandings and experiences and provided new illumination of the impact of Clean Break's work. You are then invited to walk around the exhibition at your leisure.

Refreshments provided. Entrance is free but please register by clicking here.

Un:mute is part of the Resonate Festival, funded by the University of Warwick to celebrate Coventry’s year as UK City of Culture.
