Over 160 people attended the opening event of the Changing Face Of Hull Exhibition on Thursday April 2nd. It was a great success with food supplied by Zoo Cafe on Newland Avenue and speeches from The Deputy Mayor Councillor Anita Harrison, Second Photographer Rebecca Robyns and lead artist Quentin Budworth.
About the experience Quentin said:
“Putting the exhibition up was an epic endeavour, involving very long days with hard physical and mental work. It would have been impossible to complete without cake, coffee, a spirit level and a hammer! Tim Wall helped on the first day putting up the screen and setting up the projector and Anna Kirk-Smith helped with the curation and physical hanging of the exhibition, whilst Andrea Petch dealt efficiently with the press and marketing of the preview. Artlink were absolute stars in assisting us with the signage, thanks a million Kate! Jessica Leathley was a constant and enthusiastic presence throughout and Isaac a kind and gently supportive cake and tea provider. Big thanks also to the Library caretaking staff for whom nothing was too much trouble. Thanks also to Rebecca Robyns for documenting the preview event .
Seeing the room filled with people who normally would not spend an evening together enjoying a shared experience, the photography, film, food and each other filled my heart with joy and is perhaps one of the real achievements of the project”.
