This exhibition explores ordinary people's voices against a world of corporate and political messages.

In recent years, fast-paced news sharing and populist vote winners have left us with frustrations about our own ability to be heard. Using the Museum's historic collection of satire and political prints alongside artworks by contemporary British artists Gillian Wearing and Mark Titchner, this exhibition explores ordinary people's voices against a world of corporate and political messages.

Please note that Worcester City Art Gallery and Museum is closed Sundays.
