Stephen Willats, Human Right
Human Right is the catalogue published on the occasion of Willats' exhibition of the same name at Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art in Spring 2017.
"Two decades ago Willats collaborated with the Middlesbrough Art Gallery on a project involving several organisations in the town, from the library to the mosque. For this exhibition he returned to Middlesbrough to work with local community developers on a new project.
This new project is put into context with pieces created since the late 1970s. This selection focuses on problems faced by people during their everyday lives, challenges of modern society that might compromise their civil rights." (MIMA)
Human Right launched at Claire de Rouen in March 2017.
