Filming David Spero for the David Spero: Churches Exhibition

The next exhibition to be displayed in Gallery Two is David Spero: Churches, which will be open from 15th April to 4th September 2011.

Filming David Spero

In his Churches project, David Spero documented buildings which are being used as churches, but were originally intended for another purpose. These buildings feature none of the traditional architecture associated with places of worship, and can often be found in unexpected places.

David visited our large object store in Insight: Collections and Research Centre to be filmed for a video which will be on display in the gallery. He was interviewed by Philippa Wright, Curator of Photographs and the Churches exhibition.
