Procession: An Exhibition brings together a collection of objects from Procession, and attempts to contextualise the event within a local historical vernacular. Central to the show is a commissioned film of the Sun 5 July Procession and a set of hand-made banners designed by Ed Hall, in collaboration with the participating groups. These elements will sit within a lineage of historical material and folklore; incorporating Mahatma Gandhi, Jerry Lee Lewis, Yuri Gagarin and The Blackout Crew. Contemporary and old-fashioned, popular and obscure; don’t let Procession: An Exhibition pass you by!

Jeremy Deller’s past projects have included Acid Brass, a collaboration with Stockport’s Williams Fairey Brass Band that linked acid house with brass band culture; The Battle of Orgreave, a 1000-person re-enactment of the notorious 1984 battle between police and pickets during the miners’ strike; and Folk Archive.
