Pop Up Exhibition 2018

4th May 2018 until September 2018

People from across the city are to be featured in five pop-up exhibitions as ’The Face of SOT on Tour’.

‘The Face of SOT’ is a giant art installation in the city centre, created from 3,550 photographs to reveal the iconic face of 23-year-old Jozef Clark. Jozef’s face was chosen to represent the city, as a young person in the here and now, facing forward on his journey.

The People’s Picture – run by award-winning artist Helen Marshall – was commissioned by SOT City Council to create the artwork, working alongside local arts organisation B Arts.

The pop-up exhibitions can be viewed in Longton Market, Fenton Town Hall, Stoke Market, Tunstall Market and Burslem School of Art from 4th May 2018 until September 2018. A whole range of different people from Stoke and their stories are featured from zookeepers to pottery workers with ages ranging from 6 months to 82 years. Information on selected people’s stories is available online and in a collectable booklet. To view the booklet click here.

“It couldn’t have come at a better time, it has let me reflect on my life and to set new goals of achievement to better myself working with children, mental health and the YMCA. I have had so many moving messages on social media, I thank the people of Stoke for coming forward and sharing their outlook, I am so proud of my City.”
