They Said, We Said Exhibition at The John Rylands Library

This exhibition presents a range of contemporary artworks, all of which have been produced in response to iconic historical figures.

11 January - 29 April 2016

'They Said, We Said' is a collection of artwork produced by members of Pure Studio, an arts facility based in Stockport that helps its members, all of whom have a learning disability, to develop their practice.

Inspired by quotes taken from the statues of influential figures found in the Library's Historic Reading Room, members of Pure Studio share their own contemporary responses to these poignant messages.
