This Class Works
92 Burton Road, Sheffield.
14 - 29 JULY 2018
92 BURTON ROAD
This new exhibition features work by Pete McKee and offers a personal perspective on the work and life of the working class. "My work aims to celebrate the spirit of the working class; the pride, tenacity, hope, fight, passion and resourcefulness which I witnessed growing up. I was raised on a council estate and was the youngest of four children. My dad was a steel worker and my mum a factory line worker. Everyone around us was as poor as we were, practically everything in our house was bought on the never never, half my clothes didn't fit and the other half had been previously worn by someone else.
I look back on those times fondly and remember how our persistence and unfailing hope that "something better was around the corner" helped us to survive. This exhibition aims to highlight the strength, dignity and humility of the community in which I grew up in."
Alongside new work from Pete this collaborative exhibition will feature the work of several other artists, film makers, writers and photographers who offer their own perspectives and experiences of growing up in a working class environment.
'This Class Works' will be exhibited inside a former spring factory, located at 92 Burton Road in Sheffield. This large warehouse space is located just outside the city centre and is surrounded by smaller factories which still thrive today.
