Men's Voices: Stepping Out of the Box
@ Locomotion – The National Railway Museum at ShildonBook Now
11 May 2019 - 22 May 2019
Set amongst the backdrop of Locomotion’s many trains, this original artistic exhibition explores the social norms of traditional masculinity; it features textiles, printmaking, poetry, sculpture and sound that consider how destructive stereotypes shape us.
Discover how local artists broke down barriers with men and boys across the North East to explore aspects of masculinity that have been entrenched in this part of the world – with its history of industrial jobs that reinforced gender norms and shaped traditional roles of men and women.
Saturday 11th May – 14.00-15.30
Meet the Makers of Men’s Voices:Stepping Out of The Box – come along to view the exhibition and chat to the artists and curators involved.
