EVENT: Exhibition launch ‘City Stories’
Date: Tuesday 18 October 2022
Time: 12.00 - 14.00
Location: Futures Gallery, Pierhead
Description: Pete Davis’ photographs of Splott were taken at a time when the steelworks was closing and the area was being redeveloped. Having grown up in Splott, Pete returned to the area on numerous occasions to capture the environment: “Conscious of the very major changes […] I would record the street life and the gradual decay of the urban landscape” Beyond Splott, the wider city was also changing. Coming out of the post-war era, Cardiff was developing a new infrastructure which transformed the way people navigated and utilised the city. Over fifty years later, Pete’s photographs give new audiences the opportunity to reflect on a time and place that changed both visually and culturally.
Open to the public: Attendance at the event is by invitation only however the Senedd and the Pierhead will remain accessible to the public during our normal opening hours.
