Leading The Blind: Saldanha Suite, Fort Dunree:

Leading The Blind: John Black Saldanha Suite, Fort Dunree: 8th - 30th June 2019 Exhibition Preview Saturday 8th June 3pm Leading the blind is a new body of photographic work by local artist John Black, developed while researching how a blind and visually impaired group came together over knitting in order to overcome their isolation, improve their own lives and support each other as a community. 
He weaves this narrative together with the re-telling of historical events from 1939, when blind workers at the Gwynn Institute in Derry launched one of the first known industrial disputes by disabled workers.

Through the act of unearthing and presenting such hidden stories and histories of marginalised communities, Black seeks to bridge historical landscapes and enrich our understanding of the human condition.
