The story of our 19th century inventors and pioneers is all around us, but with so many experiments, ideas and notions jostling for position, history could have lurched off on a tangent at any moment and become very different.

What if Brunel had graced Sunderland with a vast suspension bridge, or Lovelace & Babbage had computerised the 1840s? What if steam-powered airships had really taken off?

This exhibition celebrates the almost, might-have-been world, of Fabricating Histories!

This exhibition is a collaboration between Northumbria University, Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums and five artists, kindly supported by Arts Council England.
