Show Me the Money: The Image of Finance, 1700 to the Present - Saturday 11 July – Sunday 24 January 2016

People’s History Museum
10.00am – 5.00pm

Show Me the Money charts how the financial world has been imagined in art, illustration, photography and other visual media over the last three centuries in Britain and the United States.  

The exhibition shows how artists have grappled with the increasingly intangible nature of money and finance from the South Sea Bubble of the early 18th century to the global financial crisis of 2008 and its aftermath.  On show are works from the great 18th century satirists William Hogarth and James Gillray, alongside newly commissioned works by contemporary artists, Cornford & Cross, Immo Klink, Simon Roberts and James Jenkins.

Suitable for all ages.  In order to keep the exhibitions programme affordable to everyone, please make a donation.  For further information, please contact the museum on 0161 838 9190 or info@phm.org.uk
