Peninsula Arts 'Revolutions' Season – We The People Are The Work

A revolution can be a rebellion, an insurgency, a coup and can mean disorder, anarchy, unrest and defiance. In all its guises, revolution represents change. This exhibition programme explores how this is communicated by the people, to the people, and the vital role art can play as an expression of this.
