A new exhibition opened in Rochester explores issues related to the uncertainty workers face today compared with lifetime occupations people enjoyed in the past.
Steve Mace, the former owner of a factory from Rochester, has launched ‘Occupation’ at Rochester Art Gallery, in the Medway Visitor Centre on Rochester High Street.
The exhibition showcases the typical factory tools, environment and clothes, while seeking to investigate different people’s occupational experiences.
Launched on 26 August 2016, it will be open until 12 November. Entrance is free and the gallery is open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm and (until October) on Sundays from 10.30 to 5pm.
A special event with the artist will be held on Saturday 8 October from 10.30am-12.30pm and from 1.30-3.30pm to informally discuss the exhibition.
