Johny Pitts - Home is Not a Place

Mon-Wed: 10-6pm; Thu: 10-8pm; Fri-Sat: 10-6pm; Sun: 11-6pm

In 2021, photographer and writer, Johny Pitts, and poet Roger Robinson travelled around the British coast in search of an answer to the question 'what is Black Britain?' Their collaboration became Home is Not a Place.

Travelling in a red Mini Cooper, Pitts and Robinson’s circumnavigation encompassed the coastal, urban, rural and suburban, via the places in-between. Following the coast clockwise, together they set out to document and respond to the many manifestations of Black British culture, and to present an alternative to official and media narratives.

In the exhibition and accompanying book Robinson's poetry sits alongside Pitts' images from around the country. The show's title comes from a quote by American writer James Baldwin ‘perhaps home is not a place, but simply an irrevocable condition’.

Tickets: £6.50 (Concession: £4.00 )
