Feedback brings together the work of artists who look at the relationship between world events and individual experiences. While it is unlikely that art can solve chronic world problems, this exhibition attempts to provide a platform for debate about relevant issues. Rather than arguing for any particular ideological position, a range of emotional responses and individual circumstances are canvassed.
