MIMA take an in-depth look at ideas and references featured in The Chemical City exhibition. Special guests share research and insights.

Chemical City is a large thematic exhibition on the legacies of chemicals production in the Tees Valley. Starting with a focus on plastics manufacturing in the area, the exhibition travels through broader social, economic, material and ecological themes.

It charts relationships between early experiments with synthetic fibres and dyes and contemporary innovations in more sustainable fashion through historical materials and contemporary design products. Artists’ painting, sculpture and film trace the impacts of twentieth century manufacturing on people and places.

This is a FREE event, but booking a place is essential here.
