Taking archive interviews, film and photographs, Jackson & Kelland use the racial tensions of 1960s Smethwick as a starting point to explore both historical and contemporary debates on immigration in Britain. Presenting stories, memories and photographs from two culturally different perspectives, the audience is invited to question what may or may not be real in this new exhibition. Things that we know to be true are constantly replaced through acts of revisionism. With this in mind the artists invite the audience to investigate the combination of current and archive information that they have presented.
