The City of Six Towns : by Mark Power

The City of Six Towns

In 2015 Mark Power was commissioned to make new work in Stoke on Trent to feature in a largescale exhibition in the public realm.

The new commission and exhibition, entitled The City of Six Towns, featured  50 new works from Power and was a distinct illustration of the city as he found it.  Like visual stories or postcards from the city the work created was about Power’s findings and how the city presented itself to him.  During the commission Power held conversations, meetings and talks to engage with people and explore the spaces and places in the city inspired by their comments.

The exhibition was located outdoors in the city centre square for eight weeks.

A collaboration with Appetite, Creative People and Places.
